About Bradley Convissar:
Ahh, short stories. With today's on-the-go population, always on the move and with a somewhat shorter attention span, short stories prove the perfect diversion. I own a Droid X and I love to download short story collections, especially from Indie authors, to read when I am out and about. On line at the market. At lunch. While waiting to pick someone up. Short stories provide the perfect vehicle for quick entertainment as we get along with our busy lives. They also are a wonderful tool for new authors to get their voice heard. Many people, and I include myself in this group, don't always want to invest the money or time on a full 300 page story by someone they have never heard of before. But short stories give readers a wonderful opportunity to decide if they like an author's stories and style before making that commitment to read a whole novel.
