Where Should We Send Your Stories?

Hi, there. I’ve given a lot of thought about what to give you if you sign up for my newsletter. After all, you’re permitting me to enter your email once a month or so, and I consider that a privilege.  Many authors give away their 1st novel to interest you in buying their second #2, #3, etc. But I’d rather that you get to know my writing—my style, my voice, my diversity, and subject matter, rather than a novel you might like… or not.

So I’ve decided to gift you with 7 short stories. I love short stories… writing them, reading them, and thinking about them afterwards. I hope you do too. At the very least, these will give you a detailed sense of my writing. At best, they might help you decide which novel of mine you’ll want to read.

Bottom line: Over the course of the next couple of months, you’ll get those 7 stories (as well as the inside scoop about my writing, special discounts from me and other author friends, upcoming events, and even the occasional rant) absolutely FREE.

After all, they say that short stories are like an affair, while a novel is like a marriage. The choice is yours. 🙂
