Lazy days of summer reading

The fortune teller cover_smaller

Being succinct is often more difficult than being lofty. This is the realm of the short story writer; for the task of such an author is to come full circle; to satiate with a satisfying balance of   beginning, middle, and end… all the while maintaining a full and open throttle…driving the plot in a degree that it sustains the interest of the reader while not diverging off course. Take no side trips, no matter how lovely a place they could lead you, for the short story is like the plane on a scheduled fight…we don’t wish the pilot to deviate from the flight plan.

And so I must confess that this blogger likes to read and write the short story even though it sometimes appears to have lost its momentum in the 21st century… yet I maintain that it is still alive and kicking…you just have to go and get them…

With summer upon us I wish to invite your to a pre-order The Fortune Teller and Other Short Works. (yes, it may be  shameful of me to promote my work to some…but we’re among friends!)

If you read on a device or like paperback, it will be in the wild on July 1st…Happy reading!
