My new series of short stories has been submitted to Amazon’s KDP and is now live! You’ll find my published short stories there, if they’re part of The Abiding Fascinations of an Eclectic Mind. So far, there are two in the series but, don’t worry, I’m working on it!

The Abiding Fascinations of an Eclectic Mind

Above I will add every published story in the series, which may differ from the Blog posts shared below. Those may include flash fiction, for example, which is unlikely to make it into this series. Also, I may eventually have multiple series ….

Short stories, from flash fiction to novellas.

If I write something that isn’t a full length novel, you’ll find it here. I post them on the blog and then they’re sorted into this page. Isn’t that nifty?

Short Stories from the Blog

Each story will be available here for free. If they’re intended as part of the published series, then they’ll be here and free until the next one is finished. Once it is, I’ll add the new one here and remove the previous one in order to submit it for publication.

Enjoy them while they’re here—and thanks for reading!

  • When Did it Get Dark?
    This is a 50 word flash fiction story I submitted for a contest, Nifty Fifty July, in 2020 over at Secret Attic. And I won! You can get a copy in print (sans […]

If anyone else is interested in writing short stories and possibly getting them published, I suggest you check out Secret Attic. They host a plethora of contests for short stories of many different word lengths. Some have prompts and word limits, others have specific word counts, etc.

If you’ll allow me to toot my own horn, I did get a flash fiction published in Issue #3. It’s here for free, too. I wouldn’t do that to you! Check it out here.
