Greetings! I’m am sorry for not writing in so long! I promise to do better in the future. I think I am reading so many all at once right now mainly research books for my novel, that I haven’t finished a larger work. That is why I would like to introduce you to a couple of short stories that are great reads when you want to be entertained and may not have a lot of time. They are both by a debut author, Steven Lloyd. I really think Steven is someone you might like to follow in the future, because I believe he is really going places.
The first short story, “The Wooden Box”, is about an aging man who is crafting a wooden box as a favor for his ailing wife. It is a story of love, memories, and promises that must be kept. It is heartwarming, reflective and bittersweet. I don’t want to say too much more and spoil anything for you as a reader. Check it out!
The second story I read while doing laundry! It even made that mundane task more fun, if you can believe it! This story, “When Darkness Falls”, is a story of a young boy visiting his grandfather, who has a story to tell him. This is a tale of horror and retribution. The grandfather, Max, is about to tell a tale to his grandson, Chad. Their evening together doesn’t go quite as planned however. Sometimes karma comes back to bite us on the behind. Read what happens when it all comes to a head, but a word of warning: If you read it at night, make sure all the lights are on! If not, keep looking over your shoulder…
If you have a Kindle e-reader, both stories are available for download.
