New collection HOW TO DIE WELL is available everywhere in both trade paperback or ebook for your reading enjoyment.

The book features twenty stories, a great cover by artist Mari Lowery and a very kind and generous comment by Mr. Donald Ray Pollock:

”Bill Breedlove is a masterful writer, and the stories in How To Die Well are some of the most exhilarating and strange and downright good that you will ever read.”

Hope you enjoy the stories.
