Sunday Shorts

Sunday Shorts is a new meme started by the The rules are easy, a short story, an anthology of short stories, a novella, or a quick weekend read that is also short on your wallet!

Just to be clear Sunday Shorts is simply about finding new short stories be they ones you’ve read and want to share with others or ones you ie. me have heard about and think sound great and want to read sometime down the road.

I’ve found that authors web sites are a great place for short stories. They will post a couple for people to enjoy that way you can sample their work. Another place I’ve found for short stories is online magazines. There are many out there such as Apex Magazine.

From the latest issue number 40 is a story called Sacrifice by Jennifer Pelland


  1. Hi Jess,

    I don’t read much in the way of short stories and I have never bought a magazine in my life.

    The cover on your ‘Apex’ magazine was just too alluring to ignore however, so I followed the link and read the story.

    Perhaps I shouldn’t have done! After losing my own mother just a few weeks ago, the storyline had me wiping away the tears by the time I had finished reading.

    But what a powerful few lines. Thanks for the post.

      I do understand. I lost my dad. It’ll be 4 years in October and still cuts like a knife but that is my point on short stories. In that short span so much in conveyed. You have to admire an author who can say so much and not in 1000 pages or 500 or even 200 sometimes in just a few you are sucked in and it’s all because of the emotional impact usually.
