Who Loves Short Stories? Part 4

This is Part 4 of Who Loves Short Stories, a new segment of Jemsbooks.blog!

If you know anything about me at this point in time from reading my blog, you would know that I am an eclectic writer. I can’t just write in one genre or about one subject or for one age group. I love to bounce all over the spectrum and sometimes outside my comfort zone. This can be scary at times!

In this short story collection I have written 15 stories in the following genres, romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, horror, paranormal, sci-fi, and fantasy. This book was dedicated to my courageous friend, Anne Gillis Benedetto, who lost her fight with breast in 2017.

The fourth story in this eclectic collection is A New Home.

Most of my stories just pop into my head or come from a dream I may have had that prickles at the back of my brain until I write it down. Sigh!

This particular story is one that popped into my head one day as I was babysitting my grandson after I dropped him off at Preschool. During those two quiet hours I wrote this story.

This story, as one reader mentioned, could be the prequel to a full-length book. Who knows? Maybe one day?

Blurb: A New Home (Suspense)

The Earth is in danger of destruction by forces within it caused by our own neglect. It is dying. Spaceships are scheduled to keep leaving Earth until as many healthy inhabitants as possible can be collected to leave to go to a new planet.

Those left behind will die due to sickness or eventually lack of oxygen as it is being depleted. The last spaceship lifts off and takes the fortunate Earthings to their new home. 

Once they arrive on this unfamiliar planet, which has been checked over by scientists to assure it is habitable, everyone has a job to do and must get to work to build their new homes.

Life begins to settle down until strange things begin to happen that cannot be explained. Will they be able to survive in this new home? Are they no longer alone?

I hope some of these stories will pique your interest. There is something for everyone.

Thank you for stopping by to read about An Angel Among Us. I love to hear from readers and avidly welcome reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads.
