Sunday Shorts

Sunday Shorts is a new meme started by the CabinGoddess.com. 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!

 

 

My first read-a-long is for Life In Death a short 88 page story that is available right now on amazon for $2.99 or free for amazon prime. Take a look see at the blurb and see if it sounds like a winner to you. Review coming soon.

 

 

 

When a girl that social worker Kari Marchant places in foster care is brutally murdered, she’s compelled to learn why. Her quest for the truth pits her against friends and coworkers. As Kari works to solve the horrific plot, more people die. She’s been targeted for death and she doesn’t even know it. How far should she go to learn the truth—even if it threatens her life?

When homicide detective Rance Nicolet meets Kari, his attraction to her is powerful—and the feeling is mutual. But things between them go terribly wrong when Kari’s old lover is found murdered with a letter from her in his pocket. The evidence against Kari is damning. Rance’s personal and professional lives collide. Does he blindly believe the woman he’s falling in love with or follow the evidence no matter where it leads?

I continue my love of bizarro this week with a bizarro author who I simply must read and who’s books I have sitting on my kindle waiting for me. Anderson Prunty is well known in the bizarro and horror genre. The book I’m sharing today is free on kindle right now so you can get a copy should it sound appealing. It’s also horror not bizarro so those who bizarro doesn’t appeal to quite like it does me fear not. Bizarro authors often write multiple genre.

Bury The Children In The Yard by Anderson Prunty is one that I personally am looking forward to reading. I’ve heard great things about it and the authors other works.

This volume features: “The Library of Trespass”, “Music from the Slaughterhouse”, “A Butterfly in Ice”, “The Spot”, “Laundrymen”, “The Warm House”, and the novella “Bury the Children in the Yard.”

Anyone who’s read my blog for a little while now and I should hope that’s all of you will be quite familiar with my love for a little genre called bizarro fiction. It’s weird and obscure and mostly comedy/satire/bizarre rolled into one wacky ball of fiction. It’s entertaining and I love my reads to entertain me.

For this weeks Sunday Short I’ve picked one that I kinda <3 in a major way and would love to have though for some reason am convinced I’ve either read it or own it. Not sure but it’s mighty familiar. Could just be that I’d like to live out the title.

So here it is Mother Puncher by Gina Ranalli currently as I write this $1.99 or free for prime. 120 pages of anti breeder fiction. Enjoy

 

The world has become tragically over-populated and while the government hasn’t completely outlawed procreation, it strongly opposes and discourages it in what it considers to be a perfectly humane way. Ed Means is a man who loves his country. He loves beer and Johnny Cash and his sparkling beloved Ford Trinidad SUV. He is a good American, a good consumer and a good husband in a troubled–and of course–childless marriage. A former boxing champion, known to most as simply Champ, he now works in a hospital, doing a job most people despise him for. He is, like many others of his ilk, employed by the United States government; fully licensed and registered and carrying the badge to prove it. He doesn’t relish his job but knows that it needs to be done and knows that he is the best one to do it. He is a Mother Puncher. A fair, firm and uncompromising Mother Puncher. Breeders beware.

I was lucky and got to review Michael Carill’s book Shades of Grey. I enjoyed it very much and as mentioned in my review will be keeping an eye out for more of his work. He has two  free books that make it easy to check out his work. This is great for authors to do allowing a reader to sample their work. I’m going to mention one now so that you all can give it a read and see what you think. I haven’t read it yet but will soon.

 

None of the residents of Barnaby Close are particularly unhappy. It’s in a nice area and the families are well off and caring. So why have they started killing each other?

 

 

 

Available free on Smashwords and amazon. Check it out see if you get as hooked on Michael’s work as I was after Shades of Grey.

Me being a big short story fan and being a big Nicole Cushing fan I thought it would be nice to feature one of Nicole’s short stories. I recently had her on for an interview and we covered her love of shorts. Once recent short story by Nicole can be read free online which is the one I’m going to mention however Nicole has a link on her blog linking to many short stories she has out there. If you’re interested in trying out her work then what better way to do so.

Check out The Orchard of Hanging Trees by Nicole Cushing or you can check it out here and listen to the reading
