Big news. Fantastic news. My second book is ready. My first book The Summer of Madness was a novella about a guy trying to win back his girlfriend. This time around it reflects my love of short story writers who challenged the format of the genre. Rather than one story, it is seven short ones, each in a style that deliberately strays from the regular format in order to go for something far more creative and imaginative. Regular readers will have already seen one of them, with my last post Punbelievable, which happily got wonderful feedback. You’ll also notice the incredible cover. My thanks to the very awesome Meg Sorick who drew it.
If you’re interested to read the other six stories, that’s great. I’d be happy to answer any questions. You can get a copy here.
Wonderful. Best wishes on book 2.
Thanks Darnell. With this second book it was about going in a different direction and evolving my writing, while still keeping what was popular from the first book.
Thanks. Nice to hear.
Thanks Bruce. This one is a more personal project. I’m curious which of the seven stories will be the most popular.
Thanks Derrick. It was a fun and exciting project and onto new things now 🙂
Congrats – well done, you 😊
Thanks. It’s great to see the progress in my writing. All the stories are very different, but Punbelievable was definitely intended to be the funniest.
You are doing great Alex, bravo, bravissimo!

Yes, congratulations, Alex!
I do read books by bloggers, and it’s a fab thing. I am backed up with many reads, but mostly I am boycotting Amazon. (I checked the links).
Meg is quite awesome! Lucky you.
Thanks for your kind wishes. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. And yes, she is. I’m glad she’s having such a nice time in Ireland.
