Embers (Again ;) )


It seems that poor Embers got lost along the way and has picked up about zero interest.  A lot of the stories are based on stories that I posted on the blog, but remember, I post first drafts here and by the time they make it to the book they’ve undergone massive revision.

Embers is my second book of short stories.  There are over twenty stories in Embers, of which two are novellas and two others are almost novella length.  Even though there are a few very short stories, the average length of story is more than double those in the first book, Seasons of Imagination.


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.

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.” – Author D. Wallace Peach

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.

      Thanks. Embers is the title of the first story in the book. After I picked out the book I realized that most of the stories have an important or climatic moment either at dusk or dawn, leading to other reasons for embers….
