comes in all genres and I find the short story format an added
bonus of romance. I fell in love with short stories when I
was around fourteen years old, and I started reading black
romance confessions. The stories were out of this world to
say the least. I found this genre of writing fascinating.
Short stories according to Wikipedia are “a work of
fiction that is usually written in prose, often in a narrative
format.” I found myself buying black romance magazine
every month and enjoying the short stories. I also like short
stories because they are short stories.
As I browse Amazon.com
and Barnes and Noble, I find authors are adhering to the clone
of short stories.
are coming out with different writers, in a format of short
stories. I believe this is the new genre of fiction and non-fiction
writing for the future just like the ipad, and the Iphone.
are collections of short stories, including my I
series, and many others, in e-book
format and print, which will showcase some talented writers
along the way. It’s like a genre of poetry; short stories
have their own right-of-way. I love to settle on a short story
about love and romance. How easily can a writer create two
main characters, give them some conflict, and let them live
happily ever after at the end of the short story? It can be
Short stories run from 1,000 to 8,000 words depending on

and eventually a novel so the readers can attempt to get to
know what makes the main characters tick. When I read or write
a short story I fall in love with the two main characters,
and I want to continue the trend. The characters become much
more important to me, and I give them a life, as most writers
do. This is also the birth of sequels in novels. Short stories
can be the stepping-stone to best selling novels.

This is the rebirth of the initial being of my I
Confess series. I love writing the different short

So sometimes when you don’t find yourself in the mood
to read a novel, check out a short story magazine, or a collection
