But first, enjoy this interview with Author Jason Atkinson.

Q: There are plenty of fiction books out there, what makes yours so special?

A: I realize that in this great big world that there are those that read a lot, and those that only read small portions. This book stands apart because it fits both audiences. My book of short stories is split into parts. Each story has parts that make up the entire story. If a reader wishes to read an entire story at once, they can. If another reader wants to digest smaller sections without getting lost – they can! It’s great.

Plus, my stories are just fun to read and have twists and turns all their own. Each story is unique so you are bound to find a few favorites to read over and over again.

 

Q: What made you choose these stories to write about?

A: Honestly, I didn’t have a plan going into this. It was all about what hit me at that moment. The only thing I knew for sure was to make sure I was true to myself in the process and made sure I would have stories that reflected possible life circumstances with the opportunity for human kind to ring through in the way it should be remembered – good, kind hearted souls that want to see empathy, not cruelty win.

 

Q: Do you snack while writing?

A: Typically I do not. I try to stay zoned in as much as possible, although I do love my snacks and often find myself grazing as soon as I am done with a writing session!

 

Q: Have you ever started writing and then just decided to throw it away?

A: Yes and no. I have begun stories and part way through realized that my heart isn’t in it, so I stop. I don’t throw it away though as I may find myself needing it again one day. But as mentioned, I certainly have found myself second guessing and just moving away from a story. If I have to force it work, then it’s probably not coming from me. I want pure, honest stories.

 

Q: Do you have a profession besides writing?

A: I do, amazingly publishing books isn’t a get rich quick type of deal! I actually have a career in Operations with a company based out of California, even though I am located in Iowa. I get to work from home and sometimes travel to work with different clients, and because of that I can soak in the new surroundings that I encounter and apply them to my imagination when writing stories for people like you.

  1. Most of the short story collections I have read are horror. I wonder how hard it is to write them as thrillers.

  2. I like having collections of short stories on my Kindle because I have found that they help with reading slumps. :)

  3. I’m a huge fan of short stories and collections. And I enjoy Suspense Thrillers. — totally agree with you here, me too!

    I don’t get to read that many shorts lately. Only the other day I was thinking “where have all the short stories gone?”

    P.S. Yes, they’re often a challenge to review!!

  4. Drangonfly says:

    short stories are the best [second best after PNR] to get me out of reading slumps!

  5. I had a great time writing these stories, and it is my hope that anyone reading will find the same level of joy I got when creating them.
