"I Am Your Brother": Short Story Studies is now Available for Purchase!

I am most happy to announce that my new book, "I Am Your Brother": Short Story Studies is now available for purchase.

I will be posting the Introduction in  a few days on my blog in two parts. The Introduction will probably be the section of the book that Amazon will make available via their "Look Inside" feature.

 If you are interested in purchasing the book, click on the cover to the right to go to my Createspace "store."  In a few days, the book will also be available on Amazon as a paperback and a Kindle ebook..

Cost for the paperback is $14.99 and for the Kindle $9.99.  Both will also be available in Great Britain and Europe at an equivalent price.

Introduction
) - you're welcome to correct any of my misinterpretations!
