    Thanks so much, Morgen! I’ve downloaded Fifty5pm Fictions and look forward to reading it. I’m still reading your wonderful book of short stories “The Story A Day May Collection” and am thoroughly enjoying it.

        That’s great, Morgen! Thanks for making these available. I don’t have much time for reading because of my own writing, so I’ve been reading “The Story A Day May Collection” when I’m on the treadmill at the gym! It’s a lot of stories 🙂 I’m about half way through.

    Hi Morgen, Thanks for the free book collections. I am getting ready to publish one too and would love to see how you set yours up. I have about 50 short fiction and slice of life. Micki Peluso Sent from AOL Mobile Mail

      You’re very welcome, Micki. It’s similar to a novel but with the contents page at the beginning linked to the relevant stories at the start in the eBook or page numbers in a paperback.
