My flash fiction story “Reckoning” is now posted on Stupefying Stories for you to read for free. It’s the tale of southern fire-and-brimstone Preacher Paul and his encounter with Death. This one’s been around for a little while, though I think a recent complete rewrite of the ending is what helped push it over into purchase territory.
The story began from the opening joke:
“The Day of Reckoning is upon us,” Preacher Paul said.
“You reckon?” Jake answered.
I hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment here.
