Hello, my friends, and Happy November 1st! The day has finally arrived, the release of (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village – The Complete Year, an expanded edition that features five new stories to round out the year with this close-knit community of quirky and eccentric residents. So make some s’mores, and get a copy NOW, at Amazon, for Kindle Unlimited, or order from your favorite independent bookstore [ISBN: 978-1-7375801-4-0]
So if you’ve read my short story collection, (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village, and thought how you might need a few more stories about this quirky and eccentric group, well, you’re in luck, because coming November 1, I’m releasing (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village-The Complete Year, with five new stories further chronicling their near catastrophes and calamities. The new stories (and, thus, new perceived problems for these folks) are:
- The Time Ted Canari Took a Beach Vacation
- The Time the Potato Festival Finally Returned to Birchmont Village Only to Nearly Be Lost Again
- The Time the Black Friday Sale at Lilabelle Durham’s Upscale Boutique Got a Little Out of Hand
- The Time Movie Night Turned Into a Rock Concert
- The Time the Johnson Family Moved
Pre-order is happening now at Amazon for Kindle, and there will also be a paperback version released on November 1 as well. So make yourself some s’mores, and pick up a copy!
Hello, my friends, and Happy Monday! I wanted to share a 5-STAR review my short story collection, THREE IN THE MORNING AND YOU DON’T SMOKE ANYMORE (INSOMNIA EDITIONJ), received from BigAl’s Books and Pals — calling it, in part, a “thought-provoking read” — and to let you know that to celebrate, starting this Wednesday, September 21, and lasting for only one week, the e-book will be on sale for just 99 cents, exclusively on Amazon.
To mark the two-year anniversary of the publication of my chapbook, Three in the Morning and You Don’t Smoke Anymore, I’ve released a special, expanded e-book version, Insomnia Edition, which contains three new, never-before-published stories: “Shrink,” “Tattoo,” and “Karaoke Night.” It’s available starting today, exclusively on Amazon and for Kindle Unlimited. And if you haven’t bought a copy of the print version yet (and why haven’t you?!!!), I just posted on my Medium page a story from that, “Sometimes You See That Girl.” Have a great rest of the week!
Tonight is opening night for Strongbox Theater’s music and play festival, “Strongbox in the Park,” which includes my play SQUIRRELS IN A KNOTHOLE – if you’re in the Long Island NY area over the next three weekends, check this out!
Hello, my friends, and happy, um … what day is it, Tuesday? I lose track anymore. I haven’t posted lately because I’ve been busy working on some longer pieces, but I have had time to dash off a bit of flash, “The Water”, which is another in what I call my “Sadie Stories” – until I come up with a better name for it (and I still intend on putting all these together into one collection). Anyway, this story, via the link above, just went live today at Pocket Fiction, which has a lot of great writing, so definitely check this website out. I also just recorded a version of me reading this, which may end up on their podcast, and if so, I’ll provide more info. Have a great week!
Big Al’s Books & Pals calls Tryouts a “quick, fun, intense, and even a bit inspiring read.” If you haven’t yet read my novella – which follows one young man’s quest to make the varsity basketball team – what are you waiting for?!!!
I’m excited to announce that my play SQUIRRELS IN A KNOTHOLE will be part of “Strongbox in the Park: A Festival of Stage and Song” produced by Strongbox Theater this summer, in three consecutive weekends from July 22 – August 7, outside and under the stars at Memorial Park in East Rockaway, NY. If you’re in area then, definitely check out it – just beware of hawks!
Hi there, just a quick note to let you know that my new novella, TRYOUTS, which follows a young man’s quest to make the varsity basketball team, is out today – and coincidentally at the start of a certain March basketball tournament!
