Publisher info

My pricing: I read a lot of short stories - but I see them here for way too much per story. I get collections in paperback for 10 bucks, get a dozen or two stories. So I price my shorts with that in mind. I don't feel any short story is worth over $2 individually. Well, mine are... but I price them lower anyway. :D

I have been reading for as long as I remember, and writing for almost as long... though my earliest works got lost somewhere in my toy box when I was that young. I enjoy writing almost as much as I enjoy reading - but I am a working man, so only get so much time.

To compromise, I have penned a few short tales that seemed interesting to me. I think you may like them as well. If you take a gander at them - even if you don't purchase the full story, I would welcome your feedback. Feel free to reach me at TypistsOnDemand@gmail.com

Also, if you are an aspiring writer and need your manuscripts turned into type or digital copies made, please let us know - besides some writing myself, I run a successful document processing company, handling numerous other aspiring authors.

Thank you. I hope you enjoy these little tales.
