I told you all about Leah Angstman's journal, Go Read Your Lunch HERE.
Today my story, "Joe The Salamander" is available for your lunchtime pleasure. Also, you can read it for free on any downloadable device. How's that for a free lunch.
What if you think the story is worth something? On the GRYL page gives you a range of what you can donate. Heck...you can toss me as little as fifty cents! Below are the range of donations, all through Paypal suggested by the magazine.
If all of my Facebook friends chipped in a few quarters, I'd be paid $1,631. Please, friends, I really need the money.
Joe decides that the solution is to wear a costume (see left, as this could be Joe) in order to hide from interactions. Joe wanted to rent a super-hero costume, but instead all he could find was a one of a salamander. Find out how, why and what happens.

Leah Angstman, the coordinator of Alternating Current (publisher of These Poems Are Not Pink Clouds) has something new to bite into. It started as a three times weekly publication of work just long enough to read during lunch breaks and it's called Go Read Your Lunch. (UPDATE: on 6/12 this was changed to twice weekly). The stories are downloadable to many devices and free, but for chump change you can donate to pay the authors under their "what is this story worth" button. I say my story is worth the ninety-nine cents (a cheap cup of convenience store coffee), and I'm hoping hundreds of people donate that. The rest of the author's stories are worth much, much more---so here is the line-up.6/3/13 Nathan Graziano | "Vandals"
6/5/13 Daniel Crocker | "This Love Story has a Zombie in It"
6/7/13 Angele Ellis | "Gulf War Reunion, 1991"
6/10/13 Ronnie K. Stephens | "On Coyotes and Hay Bales"
6/12/13 Kenneth Nichols "Something Like a Sin"
6/17/13 Shauna Osborn | "Blood Jars and Magic: A Short Guide to Menstrual Art"
6/20/13 Charles P. Ries | "Near to Him"
6/24/13 Gavin Broom | "The Peculiar Incident at Otter Creek"
6/27/13 Timothy Gager | "Joe the Salamander"
7/1/13 Helen R. Peterson | "Teal Man"
7/4/13 Nathaniel Tower | "The Oaten Hands"
7/8/13 Steph Post | "The Blue Diamond"
