NaNo update: My Christmas Gift to You!!

Hey all. It's that time of year again. The weather has turned cold, the television has been advertising cheap toys for three months now, and it is nearly the darkest shopping day of mankind. Yup, it's Thanksgiving. This can only mean one thing, Christmas is just around the corner.

As part of this NaNo update post I am going to reveal my newest release. You might be wondering why I am doing such a small release with no events or hoopla. Well, this book is a short, short story. In fact, it is a Christmas Special. It is the Bark Christmas Special. I wrote this as a gift to my fellow Clash players last year just before the game died and am now releasing it on ereaders as an ebook. Just like the other Bark stories, this one is free.

About the story; this Bark story is set in-between the first two books and gives another glimpse of the life of Bark as he struggled to live without a voice. Bark is left at the ULH spacestation while all the other students and instructors head home for the Holidays. The Rangers up their work to keep the world safe so that the ULH can take a much needed break and spend time with their families. Unfortunately, Bark cannot remember any family and has no one to go home to. Yet, he isn't alone. The General is also on the station for the season. However, it is The Generals choice because he hates Christmas. This short story tells a little of The Generals life before he became the head of the United League of Heroes. Bark decides to find a way to brighten the mood of his commanding officer only to discover how much The General really does hate everything about Christmas. After learning the truth behind this hatred, Bark still tries.

Personally, this is one of my favorite stories I have written. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Currently it is only available on Smashwords, but it should migrate from there to Nook, Kobo, Aldiko, and other platforms soon. I will update you on where it shows up through my Facebook page, keep an eye out.

So, Merry Christmas and enjoy Bark: A Christmas Special
