  1. I’ve just been to the Amazon link. The only short story I was able to read was “Rough Justice,” but I thought it was terrific. I can’t evaluate it as a professional editor, but as a reader, I can say that I hugely enjoyed the energy and the authenticity of the writing. I’m very picky about the fiction I enjoy, and often put a story down half way through, because I simply don’t care what’s supposed to happen. Your writing — or at least this story — kept me reading from the first to last page, without even the temptation to cheat and skip a page or two.

    I am going to get the entire book as soon as I get my Kindle. It’s a gift, so I don’t have control over the mid-April delivery date. I’m looking forward to it now, though, more than ever.

  2. Thanks very much, Terry. Your reaction to the story means a lot to me.

    I should have, and will, make it clearer that to read “I Am So Loving the Cello” one need only click on the “Short Stories” link in the panel toward the top of this page and then click on the story title.
