Two Short Fiction Chapbooks Listed on Amazon


I recently put together two short fiction chapbooks and listed them for sale as e-books on Amazon. Each chapbook includes four self-contained yet interconnected stories. Some of the situations/subjects that come up in the tales: geographical dislocation in childhood, sexual awakening, karma, teenage crime, adolescent love, a first experience with the death of someone a person cares about, complicated friendships that cross boundaries, the lasting effects of how parents relate to their children, mental illness and the impacts it can have on a family, recreational drug use, anxiety disorder, hearty laughs despite everything . . . and, throughout all of the stories, the music that accompanies pivotal moments in the characters' lives.

I plan to put together at least two more of these chapbooks, starting in early 2020.

Short Story Chapbook on Amazon

I compiled four of my short stories into a chapbook that I am selling on Amazon as an e-book. This is the first in what will be a series of short fiction chapbooks that I will make available as e-books.

New Post About a Short Story Contest I Won in 2008

Jerry Jazz Musician is an online music/literature/culture publication from Oregon. They hold a short fiction contest a few times each year. In 2008 my story "The Notes" won their contest. JJM is currently running new posts that look back at past contest winners. My story is part of today's post.
