Lunch Break Re-released

Filed under: Published! Writing as J.M. Snyder Jun 19, 2011

This week I’ve re-released Lunch Break, a short story originally published as part of my Working Man series.

As the stories in that series come out of contract, I am re-releasing them as stand-alone e-books. At some point they may appear in a print collection, but it won’t be affiliated with that series name.

Nick works as a stock boy at a local grocery store. He doesn’t mind the work — it’s a way to help pay for college. Still, there are some days when he hates his job … like when he’s trying to flirt with a sexy young businessman named Kevin, and other customers keep interrupting.

When Kevin returns to the store just to see him, Nick once again finds himself in an embarrassing situation — this time, cleaning up broken pickle jars on aisle three. But something about him interests Kevin, for whatever reason, and their second encounter leads to a lunch date, and the promise of so much more.

Read an excerpt or to buy your copy of the e-book today!

    I can’t count the number of times I’ve been in a grocery store and seen an employee who is just so “edible” and I’ve wanted to strike up a conversation – and more!

    You know what? I’m feeling generous. All 5 of you get a free copy! Just email me with the format you want. Thanks for commenting on my blog!

    I have just found you, I’d love to read it. I don’t have an e-reader, yet, do you come out in paper back or hard back? Hurray for you! 🙂

    Hi Stacy,

    Lunch Break is a short story and not available in print yet. It will be included in a print anthology at some point later this year.

    Thanks for reading!

    Congrats on the re-release! I’m looking forward to the print anthology. It’s always so hard to keep track of which shorts I have and which I don’t without them. 🙂
