FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I’ve enticed you to check out this collection of short stories. Do you find that sometimes you just want a quick story to read instead of a tale that takes days to finish?


  1. Short stories are often good because you can get through one quickly - and feel like you accomplished something reading-wise. (Same goes for writing them!)

    1. While I wish I enjoyed the experience of getting through writing one of these short stories quickly, alas, I didn't not. It took me seven years (7?!?!) to complete the stories with all their linkage, underlying themes, hidden easter eggs, et al. Next time I'm writing a full length novel! :)

  2. I love the short story. With my attention span, the short story is necessary. :)

  3. There are definitely times when a collection of short stories is the perfect choice, Mason. And it seems as though this one is a nicely-written collection. Thanks for sharing.

  4. How great this one sounds. There's nothing like a good collection of short stories. Thanks for all the recommendations. I've enjoyed coming by and seeing what you have posted.

  5. I'm with Teresa--always good to hear about a short story collection! Short is sometimes the perfect read right before falling asleep.

  6. I enjoy short stories. I've been reading more of them. I like how they can encompass so many feelings and have amazing plots in such a short length.

  7. Thank you for your wonderful thoughts and generosity, Mason. I am so grateful. From the comments, it sounds like some of your readers may enjoy the book as well. I certainly hope you do!

    If you or any of your readers have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
