msk-1It’s the last Friday of the month, and that means a new short story just went out to my newsletter subscribers. This blog post will be a companion to the newsletter.

This month’s story is called My Sister’s Keeper. It’s a paranormal story about two siblings that have a much stronger connection than just their familial ties. Here’s the blurb:

When Stuart discovers that his physical touch has far more implications than just the sensation of feeling, he goes to immeasurable lengths to save his fraternal twin sister, Alice, from a tragic fate that is out of her control.

As per usual with my stories lately, it has a tragic ending … but a new beginning at the very same time. The story finished up around 3,000 words. It is a standalone story at this time, but I’ve already been asked to carry it on further with one of the characters. Perhaps, in the future, that might happen. But for now, it’ll be a great addition to the year-end anthology I have planned. Now, if you’re a subscriber and have read it, feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

November’s short story is underway and is going to be a bit longer. It’s about a troubled teen that experiences a strange┬áday after hearing some disturbing news. With his future in question, he copes with one bad decision after another. If you want to be in the know, be sure to get subscribed before the last Friday of October and you’ll get to read it when it’s complete.
