I do freelance writing for hire and have written a lengthy non-fiction book, but I also like to write fiction. And as both a writer and reader, I love short stories.
Conventional wisdom is that novels are everything in fiction, but as indie writer sensation Hugh Howey points out, Kindle Unlimited’s subscription model has given short stories a new life.
These two stories are just the beginning. From now on, for the foreseeable future, I will unleash one new story per month. While there are a few short fiction outlets out there, there just isn’t a glut of pulp magazines like Planet Stories and Thrilling Mystery anymore. The true inheritor of the short fiction mantle in my view is indie self-publishing, and I’m glad to be a part of it.
Speaking of the future . . . I’ve been cooking up some more book projects, which I will reveal more about as we move into the spring.
Stay tuned . . . and enjoy a short story!
