"Kiss Shot" now availabe at Amazon

Kiss Shot, my eBook collection of short stories, is now available exclusively in the Amazon Kindle Store for just 99 cents at this link. The book went live last night and this morning it cracked the Top 50 bestseller list for short story collections! The eBook is also available in other Amazon territories including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. If you don't have a Kindle e-reader, you can also read the book on your smartphone or download it to your computer. Amazon Prime members can borrow the book for free!

This collection contains four short stories set in the fictional town of Cottonwood, Georgia. Here's a synopsis: A devoted maid recalls the hijinks surrounding her employer's death from a brain tumor in "How Fanny Got Her House," while a teenage boy comes to terms with his sexuality during an unexpected game of pool in the title story, "Kiss Shot." A woman escaping an abusive relationship arrives in New Orleans during a rain storm and wanders into the famed "Clover Grill" on Bourbon Street, and "I Got A Name" follows the trials and tribulations of an overweight woman looking for love at a community theater company.

The stories in Kiss Shot are a taste of a much larger work to come exploring the lives of the inhabitants of this small southern town. The stories were written over a period of almost 20 years and owe much to the tradition of great storytellers like Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Ferrol Sams and Fannie Flagg.

If you enjoy Kiss Shot, please tell your friends. I appreciate your support!
