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

He studied the brown haired twenty-four-year-old in her slinky black dress and diamond stud earrings, feeling a familiar stirring in his stomach. Spend the night together? That wasn’t how she meant it, of course. But she was right; they’d have a much better chance of stopping the murderer if they could take time out to relax and catch their breath, study the information he’d downloaded from the Web, and plan their strategy to ferret out the killer.
