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

The creature stared at his master, unmoving, ignoring his command. For the first time it dawned on him that he had a choice, that he didn’t have to wait. He took one step away from the house, then another, feeling whatever bound him to the priest begin to weaken with every step. Freedom. He could smell it on the wind, taste it in his mouth.
