I'm thrilled to announce my short story, "The Yard Sale," is currently on Amazon's Best Seller list. It is ranked #5 in humor. It has been an overnight success! I'm just beyond words and I certainly wish I would have done this a lot sooner.
I have always enjoyed writing short stories set in the South with amusing characters. A shorter version of "The Yard Sale" did well in several contests years ago. It placed in finals and was published in a literary magazine made up of contest finalist entries. It was always my favorite. So, I decided to take the core story and make it a longer story with more wacky characters. I added a touch of romance at the end for good measure and it has a positive ending as all my stories do.
I hope "The Yard Sale" will continue to do well and I am working on the next story in the Down Home Humor series, "Laid to Rest." Laid to Rest features Darlene, Richie and Tommy Ray, three of the funniest characters I have ever written about. I love them and plan to do more stories with this hapless trio.
