IN THE MOOD FOR A HEART-RENDERING, TEARFUL STORY?

Do you LOVE heart-rendering, tearful stories?  If so, you need to check out my short story, Silent Night.

Unfortunately, it’s only available through a subscription to my VIP newsletter.  But no problems.  You can always unsubscribe at any time.

Since it’s not available on any retail sties, it can never receive any reviews.  So, I’m never sure how readers respond to my characters.  Do they like them, hate them?  I just don’t know. If you do download and read this short story, I would really appreciate your thoughts on the characters and the storyline.  Hate it, Love it.  Just let me know.

For me, every time I read it, I cry.  This is one of the few stories that are my own, not one of my husband’s.  I wrote it while my grief was still fresh, and I think it comes through in the telling.  They say to write about something you know, and I tended bar for many years, so it was natural to put the setting in a bar environment, just not on this planet.  LOL.  Even the bar patrons represent some of the customers I served during my shifts.

Since I can’t get any actual reviews, I’ve sent it to Readers’ Favorite to see what they think.  Hopefully, it will earn a 5 star badge.

Also, my awesome publisher, Creativia Publishing, has been revamping their website, trying to get more eyes and clicks on our books.  They have made a fabulous landing page for We Journey No More.

Check it out and find out some of the history behind the story.  I obviously can’t tell you what was running through Bob’s mind when he outlined the story, but I can tell you what I thought and how it helped me get to where I am with my current books.  All clicks would be much appreciated.  Especially, if you buy and read it.  Smile

Until later, and have a pleasant day.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down.

About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done.

So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made.

One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors.

Anyway, enough about me. Here’s all my contact information:
