"4 Killer Crime Stories in 4 Minutes" Benefits My Kidney

I haven't been very public about this, but earlier this year I was diagnosed with end-stage renal disease. This meant my wife and I needed to move our lives one state over and receive a kidney from a donor. Luckily, that happened before things got really bad.

Unluckily, kidney transplants are extremely expensive. The care required after the operation is also extensive. It isn't like changing a tire. It's like changing how your entire body operates. In total, it would cost $1 million for a transplant out-of-pocket, according to information from my hospital. Fortunately, I have insurance. Unfortunately, you know how insurance typically works.

To defray the costs of my continuing care, I've put together the "4 Killer Crime Stories in 4 Minutes" eBook. It features four of my flash fiction pieces in a handsome eBook design. It's available through Scribd for $1.50.

I'm not trying to guilt trip anyone or host a pity party. I'm more than fortunate to still be walking around. That's enough for me. This is gravy to help get through the tough times.

And you are in mine, Green.

Dan, I'd like to keep it all through Scribd. If you run into problems, message me and we'll do that e-mail thing.

Thanks everyone!
