You Can't Beat Free


This weekend only you can download and read THE FEEDSTORE CHRONICLES totally free via Amazon for your Kindle. If you don;t own a kindle you can get a free app for your smart phone or computer.

And if you've already bought and read the book I am eternally EXTREMELY grateful, but the higher in the rankings I get this weekend the better, so download it anyway and tell your friends. Thanks.

Welcome to Pearl's Feed and Seed 

Most coming-of-age stories are fraught with symbolism, hidden metaphors, and a heaping mound of other literary devices. 

Not this one. Not mine. 

You see, I came of age while working at a dusty Texas feedstore. A place where To Kill a Mockingbird involved a twelve-year-old and a BB gun. Of Mice and Men was a problem easily solved with rat poison. And David Copperfield was nothing more than a dude that made shit disappear. 

In the spring of 1989, I went to work at Pearl's Feed and Seed for a man named Doyle Suggs. On the surface Doyle and I had little in common: I was a rosy-cheeked boy of sixteen; he was a twice-divorced, thirty-year-old high school dropout. I had yet to go on my first date; he was trading sex for horse feed in the back room. Sure, Doyle was a lout, a liar, and a lecherous derelict. 

To this day, he remains the most morally bankrupt man I've ever met, yet my life wouldn't be half as blessed, had I missed out on his misguided education. The Feedstore Chronicles is a mostly true account of those days and when murderous ex-wives, well-hung bulldogs, and feed room fornication were all part of a normal day at Pearl's.
