Short Stories

Standard

In between books, in fact, sometimes during books, I write short stories.  Writing them keeps me sharp and makes me use my skills.  For me, short stories are a chance to really indulge my perfectionism and love of words.  The same rules that apply to writing short stories, apply to writing books even to the point that  I generally approach each chapter within a book, as though it’s a short story.

Recently my short story, The Water Cure, was published in Epiphmag.  Check it out.  It’s free and there are plenty of stories to read.   Tell me what you think but be warned, my short stories are usually dark, scary and at least a little unnerving.

  1. Hi Bloowillbooks (if that is your real name),

    I’ll start off that I am not an author but felt a bug and started to write something that I hope turns into a short story I should also mention that I have a somewhat imposing request – especially from someone you don’t know and will never meet ….

    If I posted a couple of pages to you (I’m assuming that I can only post to one person), would you give me feedback on whether or not the few pages would grab peoples interest or if you think people would just quit reading?

    I’m not sure that asking people I know will bring the same willingness to be honest the same way as a completely random reviewer would.

    Let me know if you have any interest in taking 5 minutes to give me feedback …

    Thanks (?),

    Dave

  2. I’m feel pretty lame but … I couldn’t figure out how to send it to you (don’t worry – literally a two minute read because I am curious if I can write interesting) so, should I just post it here?
