Blatant Commercial – Hereafter, and After

Hereafter, and After2Hereafter, and After






This is a heads up for anyone who might be interested. If not, feel free to ignore, as I’m sure you would. For the next few days, my afterlife (?) novella Hereafter, and After, will be avalable on Kindle for 99 cents, then it’s back to the regular price of $2.99.

The image on the right is of the original hardcover chapbook issued by PS Publishing some years ago and long since sold out. The image on the left is my cover redesign. I probably should have used the original image since its long been in the public domain, but I felt like a change. That could have been a mistake but, if so, it is my own. The novella itself remains a favorite of mine, so much so that I’ve resisted the urge to expand it to novel length. Some things are just best the way they are. Besides, it’s only Amazon review says it would be a “decent 3 star short story if it was cheaper.” Now it is. No excuses.

“When a man carelessly steps in front of a speeding garbage truck, that’s usually the end of his story. For Jake Hallman, that’s just the beginning. He awakens on a metaphorical stretch of the Afterlife called the Golden Road, where the angel Brendan comes to escort him to Heaven. But Jake isn’t having any:

“Heaven sounds like a good thing in theory, but what is it really? What will I do there? Can I leave if I don’t like it? Under what circumstances? Can you force me to go?”

Brendan scratched his head. “I don’t think this has come up before.”

With that simple exchange Jake becomes one of the rarest and most valuable commodities in the Afterlife — a free soul. What’s a free soul to do? That is, if he wants to remain that way?

If you’re Jake Hallman you team up with a disgruntled ex-valkyrie named Freya and hit the Golden Road, the mystic path that links the Heavens and Hells of every mythos, plus a few places even the gods forgot. The unlikely pair join forces on a quest to discover if there really is any place in the cosmos where a spirit can be truly free.”
