Telling Stories and Tall Tales
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t tell stories. I have a very clear memory of being 4-years-old, before I learned to form letters, and scribbling on a piece paper with a bright green crayon and babbling a little story to myself. When asked, I told my father I was writing a story for him.
Throughout my childhood I made up stories. I liked to take the characters from the books I read and make up new things for them to say and do after the close of the printed book in my hand. Sometimes I even disagreed with the author and changed the official storyline in my head. I knew mine was better. But eventually I grew bored with other people’s worlds and started to make up worlds of my own. After that, it was just a matter of trial and error, learning by the seat of my pants what would please an audience and what wouldn’t. Because really, a story is not complete until it is told.
An untold story is merely a daydream, even if it has been set on paper. Which brings me to Echelon Press Shorts…. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the launch of this new line. It’s exhilarating to be part of something new.
I hope that you will join me and have a look at some of the exciting offerings, and perhaps you’ll help me complete my story, Frankie’s Diner, by being the audience.
Frankie’s Diner is the story of a man who gets in over his head. In the New York underworld, people are not always who they seem to be, and places you go each day – the office, or even the diner on the corner of your street – can be anything but safe. And as Marcus finds out, even something as simple as a cup of coffee can be more than meets the eye. In a world where time isn’t measured in minutes, Marcus finds out that sometimes your time is just up.
Let me tell you a tale….
