Two New Stories Published
10:15 am cst
This weekend, I pulled the trigger and published two new short stories on Amazon.
I have already mentioned their
titles and given brief descriptions, but here is a short recap:
Friends Take Care of Friends is a short-short
story that I wrote in a few hours one evening at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin. I got the idea on the drive up there. Once I got there,
I took advantage of having my laptop and internet access to write the story.
The Body of the Crime is a story
involving a private investigator and a ghost, set in a fictional seaside resort town.
I hope you read them and enjoy
them, dear reader. And, if you enjoy them, please tell your friends about them.

I have an announcement to make: I have decided to publish two stories on Amazon before the end of the month.
been too long since I have publshed anything. Life keeps getting in the way. While I have been working on some things, I haven't
really got much published. I do have a book being beta-read (more on that in another post,) and another that is in first draft,
but needs an ending.
I have had these stories sitting around for a while, which does me no good. So, before the end
of the year, I will publish them both.
One is a flash fiction story entitle Friends Take Care of Friends. The
other is a private investigator/ghost story. I won't reveal the title yet, because I may change it.
As for the exact
date, I think it will be a few days after Christmas.
About me: I have been writing since the early 1980s, ever since discovering a passion for writing during my senior year
in High School. My completed writings include novels, short stories, and newspaper articles. I have completed four novels
in that time, and have partially completed two others. I have had little success in finding an agent or a publisher for any
of my novels, and have recently taken my efforts online. During the years that I have been writing, I have also served my
country as a member of the United States Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps. In the last five years, I have been deployed
to Army bases in Iraq, Kansas, and Virginia.
Look for my novel Taylor Made
, available from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.
