Karen McQuestion. Fascinating especially seeing the Mona Lisa come to life but a lit My husband has always had an affinity for flashlights, something tha For awhile it seemed like every time we were at the hardware store or Home Depot he'd buy a new one. There's a flashlight in each of our cars. We also keep them in the drawers of our nightstands.
Also, we have an abundance just around the house, including a Ryobi lantern with a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 73 hours. Yesterday we were without power from 5 pm to 2 am and I have never been so happy to have Greg's collection on hand. See More. My books are primarily published by Lake Union, an imprint of Amazon Publishing not the self-publishing division, KDP, although I have worked happily with them as well. Recently I was approached by two other writers asking about my experience with Amazon Publishing.
I answered their questions, but thought I'd also post my opinion here in case anyone else is interested. Here's the truth of it: I am undoubtedly one of their biggest fans. I love that I get paid every month, as opposed to twice a year like some of the other publishers. Their system is set up so that I'm able to log into my own author dashboard and see sales in real time in graph form which helps me to see the effectiveness of promotions.
The marketing department is incredible, always thinking up new ways to match books with the right readers. I like having my own Author Relations Contact for all my many questions and suggestions. Shout-out to Gabe, who is always patient and kind! And I love having an editor who values my opinion on, well everything, but notably book covers and titles.
Unpublished and uncollected works by Stephen King
It's also been frustrating, because I keep running into cases of my ambitions outstripping my reach. Hopefully, is going to be a bit of an improvement in terms of time-management considerations. Before scoots out the door, though, I wanted to call some attention to the the short stories King published during the year. His longer fiction is always going to overshadow his shorter work, and perhaps that's as it should be.
However, the short fiction is almost always worth shining light upon, and King's short-form output was quite good this year. I'd like to talk about the stories in some depth, and in order to do that, I have to venture into spoilery territory. However, since most of these stories were available only in somewhat specialized formats, I assume that a great many King fans probably will not read them until they make an appearance in his next story collection. Therefore, it would be poor form on my part to simply dive right in and ruin the plot details of these stories.
I won't do that. Instead, I'll first offer up some general thoughts on each story, and save the more in-depth analyses for separate posts on each story, all of which I hope to produce within the next couple of weeks.

First out of the gate in the May issue of The Atlantic was "Herman Wouk Is Still Alive," a story of a low-income mother who wins the lottery one day and decides what to do with the money. The results may surprise you! I thought this was a pretty fine story, personally. It's one of King's occasional stories which has absolutely nothing to do with horror, the supernatural, the fantastic, or the otherworldly. That's not to say that the macabre never creeps in, because it certainly does.
On the whole, though, this is King working with character, tone, and perspective to create a portrait of what receiving a ray of light can mean to someone who is poor. In fact, "Herman Wouk Is Still Alive" reads -- not in its specifics, but in terms of its tone -- a bit like a stronger attempt at crafting a story that lives a bit outside the bounds of what most people think of as "a Stephen King story. Next up: "Under the Weather," which was published as a bonus story in the trade paperback edition of Full Dark, No Stars.
This is a fine story about which I can say virtually nothing without spoiling it. I'll say this: a man goes to work This was probably my second-favorite of the five short stories King published in It is easily obtainable, so go get yoself a copy. Published exclusively as a download for Amazon. It's also the least satisfying, at least as far as I'm concerned. And yet, I feel certain that it probably hews the closest to what most King fans would consider to be prime King story material.
