Here are the covers for my books.

Today I am experimenting with links in Google Docs.  I highlighted quite a few in the first chapter of Surviving the Fog. Right clicking and opening a link will take a reader to the Wikipedia page.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AqB8zD7FIFznhoBMZEdyO7YoIcgO6wEUEylXVWnMGbM/edit#

I have completed the first chapter of a new Surviving the Fog book. It's called Surviving the Fog-Douglas Lives.

Chapter One  The Crippled Man  No bodies had been discovered for over a month, so spring was shaping up to be a good season.  The small clap wood building that held Susanna’s Café was not full, but several individuals and a few groups had gathered to eat whatever she had available.  Most were happy to get out of their small cabins for a brief period, for the snows had been heavy in April.  Petal was the first to hear the arrival of the man with the wooden foot, except it wasn't a foot, it was cylinders of wood connected by a rusty spring just below his ankle, and they slammed against the floor of the old oak porch making a sound like the hammering gavel of a stern judge who has just meted out a terrible judgment upon a habitual criminal.

Jacob's Tale is a downloadable 10 minute reading from Chapter Two Alone (and Afraid)
