I originally released American Bondage under the pen name, Sallie Holt. Sallie Holt was the name of my paternal grandfather’s mother. After several miscarriages and four live births, Great-Grandma Sallie died in 1912. She was just 25 years old.
I later added my pen name Anna J. McIntyre as a co-author to American Bondage. With the current political climate of our country and recent talks of a new Supreme Court reversing Roe VS Wade I decided to release the short story under my own name.
American Bondage is under 6,000 words long. And while I’ve priced it at 99 cents (the lowest I can price an ebook) I have just added it to Kindle Unlimited, which means if you belong to the program you can read it for free. It also means you can only find it at Amazon.
While I’ll probably make just a couple pennies if you read it in Kindle Unlimited (KU), that’s okay with me, because this is a story I would just like read. It will probably take a few hours or maybe a day for it to show up in KU.
