The Experiment (revisited)

In the fall of 2011, a pretty amazing thing happened for me. I had a short story of mine published in The Derby Telegraph over in Derbyshire—you guessed it, in England.

Benjamin Little and Bogart’s Opera (short story and opportunity)

A new order came across my phone's notifications, excited I clicked through to the Fiverr app. Ready to kill a new victim, fictionally of course.

Maybe for $1,000, but not for $5. My first two contestants in the wheel of death: Kat Folland's Early Retirement Julia Robertson's Last Call … Continue reading Shawna Bergen’s Withdrawal at Free Citizens United (short story and opportunity)

Julia Robertson’s Last Call (a short story and opportunity)

Some people may call that selling out, I like to call it blood money myself. Our first contestant on the wheel … Continue reading Julia Robertson’s Last Call (a short story and opportunity)
