I have fought to complete my full-length novel all summer and I only have one conclusion...I was destined for short stories.
While I can write a full novel, I get bored with the project and lose my focus. I still want to complete Confining Fire, but instead of seeking mainstream publication, I may simply hand it over to my current publisher.
Extasy books has always done a good job with my work, in editing and in cover design (yes, the poser covers are my idea. i like knowing that the story you are about to read does not have any ties to reality)
So, with 1/3 of my novel in place, I have decided to let it sleep and I will concentrate on the stuff that I really enjoy. The short stories that frustrate reviewers and kindle readers alike.
It has been peculiar that folks object to the idea of short stories, but from this moment on, they can stuff it. I am a short story writer and that is where I will pitch my tent.
