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:

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.

Hello my friends, and Happy Friday (and to my friends in the US, happy start of a long weekend!). For your weekend reading pleasure, I’ve posted a short story to my Medium page: After a prolonged absence, the Birchmont Village Potato Festival was back and in full swing, with plenty of fellowship and merrymaking–and potatoes!–when a shocking discovery threatened to put the festival in jeopardy. Read what happened “The Time the Potato Festival Finally Returned to Birchmont Village Only to Nearly Be Lost Again”–a never-before-published story just added to my collection (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village, and part of an expanded edition due out later this year (just in time for the holidays!)

Chapbook

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!

Good morning everyone, and Happy Cyber Monday!

Beginning on December 1 at 8 AM EST, and running up until midnight on December 8, I’ll be reducing the price to 99 cents. But it’s for this limited time only. So tell your friends and neighbors – and have a great week y’all!

Hello my friends, and I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I just want to share with you another review of my short story collection, (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village, this one from LEO Weekly which calls it “a sequence of exercises in stylistic voice.” You can check out the entire review HERE, and if you still haven’t picked up your copy yet, now is the perfect time of year to read this around a fire pit, and of course with some s’mores!
