Short Story: A Different Perspective

Many of you know that I’m a contributing author to the Mind’s Eye Series. This is a photography/short story series. Each book is a collection of stories, written by a variety of authors. The stories are based on and inspired by photographs we’re randomly given, with no backstory. We’re told nothing about the photo, and so we write what we see within that image and beyond. The Mind’s Eye Series began with my fellow author Read More …

I’m excited to announce the fourth book in the Mind’s Eye Series! This series is a collaboration between authors (me included!), poets, and photographers. It works like this: The photographers provide us with photos and nothing more. We don’t get background information or tidbits about the photos.

#MondayBlogs: YOU CAN CALL ME ARI – Free Short Story

Years ago, when I first ventured into self-publishing, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the nicest, most talented indie authors out there. We had a group, a kind of online author hangout, called Bestsellerbound. Over our few years together, we published four volumes of short stories, all of them free. Life and commitments and the broadening indie community caused our group to disperse, and some of us have since lost touch. But the Read More …

#MondayBlogs: NEGATIVE IMAGE – “Sometimes I don’t feel real.”

“Sometimes I don’t feel real.” I hadn’t meant to say the words aloud. The private thought came tumbling out in a harsh whisper. Those words had been haunting me for so long, and now suddenly they sit out in the world awaiting judgment. Adam looks at me as if I’ve lost my mind, and maybe I have. “What are you talking about?” he asks. His voice is tinged with frustration. We’d slipped into this quaint Read More …
