Interested in reading the short stories in this section?

I have created each of them as unique add-on companions to my fiction books, the mini-stories and spin-offs.

I will be adding a new one each month!

There is no charge, these are absolutely free, I only ask that you subscribe to my email newsletter. Again, I’m not trying to sell you anything. The email newsletter, sent out once monthly, will have the following:

  • A summary and links to all of my blog posts in my four different blogs
  • Organizing tips (I did write an organizing book, after all!)
  • Updates on my writing projects
  • Updates on classes I am teaching
  • Free book giveaways (usually set for the 1st and 2nd of the month)
  • A link to a short story, along with the subscriber-only¬†password

Interested? Subscribe today and I’ll send you the latest newsletter, along with all of the passwords necessary to access the short stories.

Happy Reading!
