Tell Your Friends

Many of us writers do not make a living from the long hours we put into our craft.  So what is important to us is for people like you to enjoy and share our stories.  After you read a story, at the bottom of the page there is a Share button.  Press it and let as many friends and people you know enjoy the story you just read.  

Thank you so much for reading these stories.   

Writing is a labor of love.  

If I counted all the hours I’ve spent writing, editing, sending out stories, editing other writer’s work, I could make more money per hour working at McDonalds.  So thanks to the marvels of technology and digital media you can now help this worthy cause.

You read a story.  It moved you.  It made you cry, it made you think about the human condition and you feel all these powerful emotions inside.  

When you go to the movies, you pay on the cheap $15, plus $9 dollars for the pop-corn and of course some soft drink.  So 50ç is nothing by comparison.  Want to give more? Hit Other and whatever you think is right, will help.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. You’re now a patron of the arts.
