In this short story, Torres is writing in a way that is very fluid and vivid. The characters jump off the page. The short scenes burst with action and intensity and emotion. I really liked the main character in this sea story (Senior Chief O'Reilly).
It was nice to meet the author Malcolm Torres at the library here and hear him read from his new book about a sailor in Hawaii who has PTSD. Seems Torres' style is heartbreaking and funny all at once. I think his new one is called Sailors Delight, it's set in Hawaii.
If you are an indie author, this book explains everything you need to do, how to do it and why to do it -- when it comes to laying the foundation for your brand and your marketing plan. There are many other things you need to do, but this is a great place to start.
