Creek Songs, my short story collection available on Amazon Books, will soon be available on Kindle. (I love writing short stories, bringing a character’s moment in time to fruition or . . . maybe not.) Short stories are great reads for a moment of relaxation and/or escape, are time friendly, and mood friendly. Others think so, too! Comments are coming in and are always appreciated. Here’s a review posted on the Creek Songs Amazon page:
Each and every story in Carol Mann’s debut collection is at once delightful and profound, showing the deft hand of a writer at the top of her craft. Some of these stories explore loss or regret, many are brightened with humor, and all are generous with a deep understanding of the human spirit. The 26 narratives contained in this volume are mostly fiction, while several could be described as essays or memoir. The closing entries have the wistful feel of introspective autobiography, particularly the story that shares its title with the book, “Creek Songs,” a tour de force in which the course of the author’s life is shaped by remembrances of a creek flowing past her childhood home.
If you’ve enjoyed Creek Songs, I’m a happy author. Thank you. I’d enjoy knowing your favorite story or favorite character. (Or reading your comments on the book’s Amazon page.)
I’m working on my next book, a novel, tentatively titled The Spence Women. I’m planning on the completion of the book and the end of summer to coincide!
