I took delivery of my second slim volume of short stories yesterday. Here it is. I was going to say that it's always great to have something to show for one's hard work, but I can't really claim to have worked hard to put these stories together. It was a joy and delight. Really. It didn't feel like work at all. The stories were written over a couple of years or so - mainly as "homework" for the lovely Deeside Writers' Group which I go to every month.
I'm now in the habit of editing my tales before they reach anyone else's eyes or ears, so I did not have too much to do on that front. I simply put them together as a collection. Of course, it helped that I had been through this process before, two years ago, for my first volume. There may well be a few typos, a few punctuation errors, a few layout glitches (I have already noticed a couple from a quick look through today). If you spot any, please do let me know and I will make corrections/amendments before the next edition is printed. Thank you!
I hope that these small stories bring enjoyment; a fair few are quite dark, which is not necessarily a bad thing. They are meant to be quirky, different, perhaps a bit unusual. Enjoy!
