For the past few weeks I’ve been working away on a new idea and now it’s ready to see the light of day. I love short stories and I know many of you enjoy reading the ones I write, but it’s near on impossible to sell (or even give away on Amazon etc) a decent number of copies of short story collections. That means the stories are sitting unloved and doing nothing.
So I decided to give some away direct from the website without the need to subscribe… and that quickly led to my grabbing the domain SciFi-Shorts.com. Then I got a bit carried away. Rather than launching with a couple of stories as I’d planned I’ve gone for FIVE and then another THREE at the end of this week. Eek – that’s tomorrow! Four you may have seen before, but one is a completely new story in the Starflare Universe (Starflare – Shore Leave).
Does this mean I won’t be sending out monthly stories to those who’ve subscribed for updates? No! Not at all! That will carry on, and the next Starflare – Displaced episode will be with you in the next couple of days. SciFi Shorts is something extra.
The initial stories, all available to read now, are…
- Starflare – Ghosts (Panther Series, Story One) –> From Tales from the Starflare Universe
- Starflare – Rocks (Panther Series, Story Two) –> From Tales from the Starflare Universe
- Starflare – Shore Leave (Panther Series, Story Three) –> A completely new story!
- Late Night Bite –> A standalone story from Last Sunrise & Other Stories
- Translation –> A standalone story from Last Sunrise & Other Stories
I need your help!
If you like my books and short stories, and especially if you like the stories on SciFi Shorts, it would be amazing if you could share the site or a story you enjoyed – via facebook, twitter, instagram, or even old fashioned telling someone. As an indie author one of the biggest problems I face is getting my work in front of more people that might like it. If you can help me out I’d appreciate it more than I can possibly say.
So please checkout SciFi-Shorts.com and let me know what you think of the stories, the site, and the idea.
