Martha’s Kitchen Published!

Announcing the release of my new short story, Martha’s Kitchen, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!  If you love a good dose of dark humor, this is definitely for you.

The description:  Martha and Jillian, two sisters from a dying town, cope with the hollowness of city life in a bloodcurdling way. Come explore this bizarre case of nostalgia gone horribly awry, but beware the secret recipe at Martha’s Kitchen!

This is my first published work, selling at only $0.99, so if you can, please purchase a copy and let me know what you think (and let your friends know too).  No spoilers please!

Also coming soon on Kindle and Nook is Stasis, a Libertarian-themed short story about the horrors of big government. Evil flourishes when good people stay quiet.

Thanks everyone!

  1. Ernesto, I purchased and read Martha’s Kitchen and was pleasantly surprised. I don’t want to give any details away here, but suffice to say that the big plot twist really took me by surprise. I was reminded of an old jack-in-the-box that I had when I was a kid: Turn the handle to hear clunky, muted tones ….POP out comes a creepy clown – and I giggle with delight.

    I would have appreciated more descriptive language, something that would have given me a deeper sense of “being there”. Along those lines, I would have liked it to be longer as well. I guess this is another way of saying … I wanted more.

    Thank you for doing something with your talent.


  2. I am glad you enjoyed Martha’s Kitchen. When it comes to descriptions in Short Stories I try to stay as economical as possible. I only do it as far as the theme of the story allows. However, my novel is very descriptive. I think it comes from being influenced by the South American short story masters like Borges and Cortazar. Sometimes they don’t even give a character a name!
    I do understand where you’re coming from, and I’ll take that under consideration for future story-telling.
    Thanks for not spoiling.
