This short story delighted me and disappointed me. I wanted more. A fast paced story that will tug at your heart strings as a young boy deals with the abandonment of his family by his father. It is easy to step into the boy’s shoes as he works to make sense of the strangeness surrounding him. A bad dad leaves and comes back a more frightening monster.
I feel like the readers have missed this gem and it’s quick and dirty nature. Yes, it could have been longer, but what the author gave us was well crafted and original. A taste of his style so we would crave more and check out his other works. Next time, a larger morsel from author might tempt more would-be readers to take a bigger bite and try one of the main courses he has to offer.
The petite short story is available on Amazon for free. Check it out, give the author feedback he can work with and see where things go from there. Supporting indie authors doesn’t mean just buying their e-books; reviews help drive sales and provide them with fuel to make their next creation.
