One of my least favorite parts of writing, even worse than editing, is writing a blurb ;) Oh well, it has to be done. Here is the blurb to my upcoming collection of short stories, Embers. What do you think?
Meeting at that corner of time where day and night become one, where dreams and reality mix, let’s stir the coals of that fire called ‘imagination’ to discover an eclectic mix of short stories. Each story is a bit of frozen flame, an ember, that can flare up in your mind.
In the words of D. Wallace Peach, author of the Rose Shield series, these embers form a collection of “tales that cover a wide range of genres, moods, and characters, from heartbreaking and heartwarming trials of love and family to thought-provoking journeys into the future. Most importantly, the stories are peopled with richly-drawn characters gifted with unique voices, emotional depth, and the power to capture the imagination. They’re stories that will stick.” (Taken from the foreword of Embers.)
So whether you only have time to warm yourself with a very short work of flash, or you want to get cozy and lost in a novella, there is a story, an ember, in here for you.
I am currently shooting for a December 4th release date. Just in time for Christmas ;)
I will post more about this book, of course, as we get closer. For now, I will just say a few words. Although it has fewer stories than Seasons of Imagination, it is longer. There are two novellas, perhaps three depending on your definition. Maybe even four… There are also a few other longer stories, though still a few short ones, some “short-shorts”. And just like Seasons, the stories are very eclectic in nature.
You’ll hear more about Embers very soon! And about the Foreword ;)
