The Final Push is Now Perma-Free


syringe-417786_640What is Perma-Free? 


The Final Push: a short story of surgical suspense (35 pages print length) is now permanently free on Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, and Google Play. I tried to make it free for Barnes & Noble Nook Book, but they won’t let me, and they don’t price match.


What’s the big deal?  This is the first piece of fiction I wrote and has served as a precursor for everything I’ve written since. In a mere 35 pages you will experience an ER thoracotomy (more on that here), resuscitation of a blunt trauma patient, a medical code blue, and a very entertaining autopsy scene. 


Why am I doing this? The style of The Final Push is very similar to what you will see in the McBride trilogy of novels—The Organ Takers, The Organ Growers, and The Organ Killers—so if you like The Final Push, you’ll like the McBride trilogy.
