I enjoy writing both short stories and epic stories. But I have to admit it is a lot easier and quicker to polish up short stories.
It’s time for me to write some more short stories after I complete my latest WIP. I will create some more for children as I did in my latest book, Make Believe (Bedtime Stores for Children).
If you haven’t checked out this latest children story book, here is the link. There are six stories in this book with just one illustration per story shared on each page of the stories. Hopefully these stories will be requested by your children many times over at bedtime or any time.
This is a short story collection for children ages 5-8. They are perfect for bedtime or any time. They can be read by early readers or by a parent/guardian. They will provide a fun reading time for both the reader and the listener.
There are six stories with a colorful illustration of the characters of each story – one about an alien, a dragon, a fairy, a bear, a bear and a boy and a skunk. Each story will have life lessons for children to learn.
I am an eclectic writer jumping from one genre to another. In order to stay fresh I never stay in one genre for too long. I also want to offer some reading for every member of your families. It is like one-stop shopping when you visit Jemsbooks.
Watch for more books coming over the next few months. I like to create new books for readers everywhere to enjoy. I can’t see myself doing anything that I would love more than writing. It helps me escape from worries and cares to another time and place. That is what reading does for me. I hope it does that for you too.

I like writing both but what most people are not aware of is that writing short stories is hard. Harder than writing an entire book. It’s like sewing Barbie clothes was always harder than sewing things for actual people. Not much to work with. It is also great discipline on using words sparingly.
Yes, that is true. But editing short stories is a piece of cake compared to an epic book of over 600 pages. Sigh! This is what I had to do. I think I may go back to under 600 pages next book. It’s exhausting and I’m not getting any younger! Phew! 😂
Oh my. 600 pages would be a killer.
A really good short story requires a lot of creativity– being able to draw the reader in and evoke emotion in a small amount of words. I enjoy that challenge.
Yes! Thanks for stopping by, Brandon! 😀
