I read 'A Pirate's Honor'..ok..read is not a good term. I DEVOURED it!
Why do you suck! Because that story was soo good that it is forcing my to put your books at the top of my list to buy when I do my next order. You ruined my finely crafted book wait list by providing a quick free story that was soo engrossing that I want....no...NEED to read more of your work as soon as possible.
In short..you suck but rock at the same time!
As honestly as talented J.M Aucion is, and believe me the writing is in fact that good, the 25 page length simply whetted and frankly frustrated my appetite. I would indeed consider buying a full length novel of 300+ pages by this author, but at .99 cents per 25 pages strung along, individually collecting these works would be a 12 dollars or more, and I am not a fan of the serial story (although serials have a long and very distinguished history of true literary greatness). However, on its own merits, stylistic qualities, and clean formatting, A PIRATE'S HONOR is a solid read, especially for teens that have trouble getting past a handful of paragraphs.
Sometimes a short story is perfect - in a waiting room, kid's nap time, or other case where you want a complete story in little time.
It's hard to flesh out characters in 25 pages, but Aucoin manages to do just that. He packs a lot into a 30 minute read and it left me wanting to know a bit more what these characters would get up to next.
