Night Shines As Day

Try this one for a sad story told in dazzling prose, with redemption at the end. Right up this alley!

My Hometown Named Love My short story collection My Hometown Named Love fits the description well. It has 20 contemporary short stories about love for women seen from the men's point of view. These stories are not part of romance genre, but are more melancholic and psychological, things not always ending happily, telling stories in first person. These stories also deal with topics such as death, divorce, friendship, family, parenthood... You might recognize similar feelings what you've experienced. Now on Kindle only $3.99.

This is clearly a forum for people to shill their own work but if anyone comes here looking for a truly heartbreaking short story I cannot reccomend "The End of The Game" by Julio Cortozar highly enough.

Thanks for an actual suggestion (good one at that). Seeing all of these people trying to sell their books makes me remember why I stopped looking at Amazon discussions.

Beaten Zone is a collection of stories about war and its lingering effects. In it, I draw upon my own personal experiences with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Beaten Zone is not The Things They Carried; its not The Yellow Birds. It is what it is. Please, give it a look.

First of all, thank you for your service. Secondly, I read you're stories. They are really good--it certainly belongs in this forum. I wish you the best of luck!
