I Am Loving These Short Stories (and the way they are delivered)!

image

Normally, I’m not much of a short story fan. Just when I get involved in the heart of the story, or the characters, it seems to end.

But.

From October 11 until December 30, you can have a daily installment of a beautifully written short story delivered to your email inbox free.

You can read it while in line. You can read it between chapters of a novel you’re deeply immersed in. You can read it just before bed. The point is, I suggest signing up here.

If you’re like me, you’ll be glad you did. I’m already eagerly awaiting tomorrow’s which is from Thunderstruck & Other Stories, a collection by Elizabeth McCracken.

    1. Audrey, you were one of the people I was thinking about when I published this post so I’m so glad you signed up, too! They are just the right thing, in my opinion, to grab my interest but not with any sort of pressure (which is largely self imposed, I think). We’ll have to chat about Juliet, the first one, when it’s done.

    1. After some fussy tweets last night questioning the value of this post’s offerings, I almost took it down. But now that I see it’s well received by more than just myself, I am glad I didn’t. Hope you like them, Debbie!

  1. Sounds intriguing. I signed up for a similar service in the past and then could not keep up with it which made me feel like a loser and i think that was a weekly installment.

    1. No, we don’t want to add to anything that could possibly make you or anyone else feel like a loser. These are short installments, truly, and require little effort to read, but I can understand if it’s still not for you. xo

  2. I really enjoyed the first story and found that it was broken down into a good sized portion. I hope it exposes me to a lot of great authors that I never would have tried!

  3. Thank you so much for this post – I signed up immediately and got the first installment today (nicely timed, just before my lunch break!) I think I’m going to really enjoy this!
