I have four short stories online at KingsRiverLife.com - search by my name at the site and you'll see them. They're free to read and Kings River Life is a great place for new short stories every week. Two earlier short stories are at Smashwords.com/profile/view/Clamo88. Each is 99 cents.
The short stories are an excellent exercise in writing concisely and they keep my name out there as an author while I'm working on my novels. One is written and awaiting revision/editing. The other is about 1/3 written and is being worked on with a critique group, which slows the process considerably but produces a better book - it takes about the same amount of time as just writing it all and then spending a year revising/editing.
I have a third in mind, with the plot barely sketched in my mind. All three novels are linked, so I'm planning this carefully. Two books should be ready for submittal to publishers while I work on the third.
That's why you don't hear a lot from me. It doesn't mean I am not thinking about my friends and former colleagues. It just means that with family, work, and writing, my life is very full and online time is limited.
Having a good life with loved ones, a meaningful job, and a serious writing commitment is emotionally fulfilling. I hope you find fulfillment in your life, too.
