Writing and publishing – the final steps are just ahead

There are a lot of steps involved in writing and publishing a book. I am in the final stretch for my new book of short fiction entitled Encounters: Relationships in Conflict.

Here’s a bit about it:

Social mores change from year to year, but one thing remains constant: conflict between people results from differing perceptions, often between men and women and between different generations. In each story, characters confront a variety of personal and professional problems and must either compromise or adjust to new circumstances. In “The Painting,” a young married woman’s deceit catches up to her. “Doc Brunner” tells the story of a pastor facing a series of interrelated problems during World War II. In “Harry,” music from long ago invokes powerful memories.

Representing a wide range of age groups and set in many different time periods, these stories show that, while times change and circumstances differ, conflict and resolution in human relationships is an ageless cycle.

Encounters is set for release in July 2018.

  1. Best of luck as you finalize those steps and prepare to publish your new book of short stories this coming summer. I enjoyed reading your About page. I lived in Madison, NJ for two short years while attending Drew University for my Master’s degree. Beautiful town.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments. We are lifelong residents of Madison. I am glad you had the opportunity to live here while getting your Master’s at Drew. Best wishes to you!

  2. Thanks for the follow Fred – you and your wife beat my Hubs and me. We’ve only been married 51 years. Congrats on the book! There will be a shout out to your blog in a post on mine one day soon – I’m editing right now and hate it.

    1. Thank you, Noelle, for stopping by my new website, and for offering to share information about me. Looking forward to learning more about your new book. Editing is such tedious work, but the polish makes the effort worthwhile!
