Why I Published This Collection

The Story Behind Stories Outside the Box: An Electric Eclectic Book

I wrote many of these stories as responses to writing prompts from my writing group or from a Start Writing Fiction class, I took online back in 2016. I tried publishing many of these stories in various publications, but unfortunately, they were rejected for one reason or another. After publishing a few of them on my blog, I got some positive feedback from readers. After spending some time in prayer and contemplation, I decided to publish some of the stories I had written as an eBook, to give readers a taste of my writing style, before I published my full-length novel. Since its publication in July of 2016, Stories Outside the ‘Box has been updated and uploaded to Amazon for a second time. I have also licensed the collection under the Electric Eclectic Books brand and published it on Smashwords

Book Description:

A little book filled with magic, ferries, music, an angel or two, and even a bit of mystery.

Fly away on the wings of a simple drop of rain with Anna as she follows the music that fills her heart.

Have you ever had a breakdown in the middle of the road and wondered how you’d get home? Read about the miraculous end to what could have been a perilous journey for Bill and his family.

Mystery buffs and techno geeks will love An Unusual Glitch, a story about a county wide technology glitch that threatens to ruin the county’s computer infrastructure, if the problem isn’t resolved before it’s too late.  Enjoy a couple of new mysteries along the way.

You may be enchanted by a Christmas miracle that starts with a child’s prayer and a tinkling bell.

Ride in a sleigh carried on the wings of a snowflake, ride the wind on the wings of an autumn leaf or fly away on a swing!

There’s an adventure waiting for readers of all ages in each delightful little story.
