Reblogged from Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life:
I am delighted to say that Volume Two of What’s in a Name: Stories of Life and Romance is now live on Amazon and shortly on Smashwords in EPub.
Also in by the end of the summer there will be a print version of both volumes together with a total of 37 stories.
The theme is still related to the names that we are given.. In the first volume the stories were about people who were given names that were already famous or had significance within a family that they felt they needed to live up to.
In this volume the names are ordinary but their owners are anything but.
There are 16 stories and a bonus story to promote a new collection of stories in 2018.
About What’s In a Name – Volume Two.
Our legacy is not always about money or fame, but rather in the way that people remember our name after we have gone. In these sixteen short stories we discover the reasons why special men and women will stay in the hearts and minds of those who have met them. Romance, revenge and sacrifice all play their part in the lives of these characters.
