Short Stories

Short stories – what I love to do! My goal is to write three short stories a month for discipline and practice on my craft!

I have many on www.smashwords.com for FREE! I will be adding novellas soon. I enjoy Smashwords because I not only get a free ISBN number (writing share alert!) but I also enjoy the writers I have networked with: both indie and traditional.

Here are a few samples of my short stories. I design many of my own covers at http://www.canva.com (writing share alert!) to save money – creating digital publishing is expensive. Learn the tricks of the trade (writing share alert!) to save money.
