Several years ago I published multiple short stories, and I think they’ve had a good run, but I’d like to use them now to introduce new readers to my writing.
So over the next few months, I will be updating the ebooks to give them fresh new covers and making many of them free to download.
The first one to get revamped is my story, Afflicted, which was first published by Torquere way back in the day.
It’s hard to understand why some people feel the need to hurt themselves, especially when they seem to have everything they need or want out of life. So how do you help someone bent on a path of self-destruction?
And what can you possibly do when it’s someone you love?
This short but powerful story is about a young man who discovers his lover is a “cutter.” Simply asking him to stop doesn’t solve the problem. As much as he hates to do it, he lays down an ultimatum that will hopefully save their relationship … and his lover’s life.
