Publishing Two Short Stories This Summer

With a few short stories under my belt, I have been giving a great deal of thought to publishing a book that features a collection of short stories. So, I am going to take the plunge and do this! I really want to get two of my most cherished short works out to the world and I am going to sell it for free in the beginning. I am actually really excited for this! I never thought I would be a short story writer, but after dabbling in some flash fiction contests, I realized how much I enjoy the brief but intense style of writing.

I will include more details about the two short stories within the book, the cover, and the launch date.

For now, I have come up with a title!

It is called:

“It Burns Until You Take Flight.”

Both of the stories focus on the concept of freedom –  freedom to be yourself and pursue your dreams despite the obstacles that people put in one`s way. I also like to illustrate in my writing the negative effects that prejudice and suppression does to people. Sometimes, the outcome is very bleak.

I appreciate everyone`s support!

So, what have you all been working on these days? Do tell. 🙂

  1. I will be very interested to hear how your book of short stories develops. I’ve been toying with that idea as well though, I don’t have enough short story material currently written.

    1. I will keep you updated on this new publishing adventure. 🙂 That is interesting that you have been thinking about doing a book full of short stories. I find a lot of my stories have been bite-sized these days and it has been encouraging to find other authors who want to publish shorter works too.

  2. Congrats on your decision to publish your short stories! I think that short stories are wonderful and so often overlooked. I’ll be watching for your book. 🙂

  3. I’m going to be trying my hand at short stories soon too. I’ve dabbled with them in the past, but I prefer the book length. However, I have a few stories in mind that just aren’t long enough for book format. Your work sounds interesting!!
