I changed the title of my upcoming short story collection from Sundown Rising and Other Stories to Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise. Why the change? Partly because I’m not done with Sundown Rising and have been “not done” with it for about a year. It will appear later, as either a novella by itself or as part of another collection.

So why Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise? I enjoy wordplay. Odds and Ends. Odds and Endings. Get it? Plus, I think (hope?) that it reflects the original, quirky, and sometimes dark stories that you will find therein.

I’m hoping to get Odds and Endings out before the end of the year. In the meantime, please read Mommy’s Favorite for free on Wattpad to get a preview!

From Joe's writing

Fred Ruskin knew for certain Kingfisher and Quarry were staying in room seven—it had taken just twenty dollars to find out that much from Candy’s cousin Vera Martin, who was currently on duty at the front desk—but for the life of him, he could not find that room. There were only eight goddamn rooms in the whole hotel, but number seven appeared to be missing.
