I just received a note from a reader saying how much he enjoyed my stories. I wrote to thank him for his kind words and also to thank him for taking the time to write, but the email address as written is apparently garbled and my message was returned.
So I'll say it here: Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you've enjoyed my stories.
A short and silly piece. Part of a warm-up exercise during November's National Novel Writing Month. Not to be taken seriously, but it was fun to write.
I've added a second, "middle," story to my Tumblr blog. It fills in what happened on the evening after the day at the beach told in TxCathy15's "Summer Holiday." The story does not fit current SOL guidelines, so I can't post it here, but it's free for the reading or downloading on Tumblr.
"Emily" and many of my other stories are available at the iBookstore, Lulu, Amazon and other places in ePub and related formats for reading on mobile devices. Most of them are free downloads. In addition to a nice format I've revised and tightened them. I'm continuing (slowly) to revise others.
They're still the same stories as found here, and my stories posted here aren't going anywhere, so this is an invitation and heads up, nothing more.
