Just published an essay on Kindle



August 13, 2010 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: AMZN , KNDL.DL

...and unlike the short story I alerted you to before, this essay actually has to do with investing. It's called "The Peril of Investing Everything in Keynes" and, like my short story, it's available for the low, low price of $1.00 (publisher's suggested price, anyway - Amazon may charge whatever they wish). If you download it, you may notice that it's not copyrighted. It's public domain. Reproduce it and share it with whomever you wish. In retrospect, that's what I wish I had done with The Plagued Cottage.

And to keep my word about making The Plagued Cottage available for free, here it is. (If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll help you troubleshoot it.) Share it with your friends, reprint it, pass it around. Make it the least lucrative, most-read short story in history.

I want to make a special request of those who go read the free version of "The Plagued Cottage" on Google: if you could leave a comment here, either expressing what you think of it, or just saying that you read it, I would sure appreciate it.

Don't worry, I don't have one either. I'll make the "Keynes" one available on Google soon, but in the meantime, read at the short story and tell me what you think.

Oops! I just realized that the link above goes to my CAPS blog instead of the story. So here it is. And here's the url in text form, just to be sure:

I read The Plagued Cottage from your link.  You must be warped.  Liked it.  Wished it was longer.  So that's how I know I liked it.  Still don't know if I understood it at all levels.  I feel like there is something there that I did not quite get.

Ordered sample of Keynes from Amazon.  Don't be insulted.  I always do that.  (It's only a buck you cheap b*****d!)  When I get to the end of the sample, I am either bored and delete it or I order it from my Kindle.
