The Golden Years

It has never seen the light of day before, so if you don't mind being disturbed and shocked, then have at it...)The old girl looked half dead already. Standing in the darkened room, watching her skinny chest rise and fall, taking an age between breaths, I wondered if it was really worth the…See More

Gwen loved her as soon as she saw her.

 

More; she was obsessed. Intoxicated.

 

She wanted to know her name, her story, where she rode in from and where she was headed.

 

She agonized over how to speak to her, which questions to ask, without sounding foolish and…

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.
