To all those avid readers

My sweet husband has officially released his first short story, Michigan, Ten Cents! He is an amazing writer, and yes, I'm very biased, but you should give it a read! As Josh would describe it "a dark and gritty Southern-flared tale featuring a dash of humor and a wink of bizarre."

southern fiction, dark fiction, gritty fiction, best new authors,

Here is a brief summary Josh wrote about it: Leon, a good ol' country boy from San Antonio, Texas, has a wily, unconventional idea by which to get rich quick. Absorbed in his own perceived genius, Leon will stop at nothing (no matter how sinister) to see his dream of wealth fulfilled. Leon embarks on what is partly a roadtrip across the country, and partly a journey down the dusty, unraveling spiral of his own mind.
