"Julie's Spring" available free on Lulu and Mediafire

I've revised Watching Julie and Watching Julie: The Missing Years to remove elements of both stories that were uncomfortable for retailers and some readers. I published the revision as Julie's Spring. It is available as free download from
. I probably won't have time to format Julie's Spring for SOL, but it will remain as a free download on Lulu and Mediafire, and I'll add links when it appears on iBooks and Amazon.

The two source stories on SOL will remain here, and I remain grateful that SOL was willing to host them even while Amazon and other retailers refused. Thank you, SOL.

"Emily and Daniel" free download on Lulu

Emily and Daniel is available now as a free download in ePub format on Lulu (and eventually on Barnes & Noble and Amazon), and will appear shortly on my Tumblr blog as well. It's the same story as here, with a couple of minor fixes, and the version posted here will remain here.

What's the difference between SOL's ePub version and the one on Lulu? Not much. Aside from minor edits the Lulu version has slightly different formatting, a more book-like feel, and a cover.

Best wishes,

"Emily and Daniel" queued for posting

I've submitted "Emily and Daniel" for posting, It's a sequel of sorts to "Emily," but it stands on its own. It's a romp, with a fair bit of over-the-top language, which I blame on Emily since a lot of it comes from her journal. I had fun writing it, and I hope you enjoy it.

It will be available soon as a free download on Lulu and elsewhere, but the story as posted will stay here on Storiesonline.

Unable to reply directly

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.

Best wishes,

"Make Me Feel All Pretty" posted

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.
