The Triond website has published three of my short stories (Faith, Hope and Chastity; The Office Bicycle & Dandelion Clock), but the best of this is that I will get paid each time they are read (!!). It isn’t a lot of money but it will soon mount up the more times they are read; and nicest of all, they are free to read. You don’t have to register or pay a fee or anything; you just have to click on the link.
Faith, Hope and Chastity (http://www.authspot.com/Short-Stories/Faith-Hope-and-Chastity.302805) explores one of my favourite themes, evangelical Christianity and sex. Daniel is a twenty-five year old Christian and a virgin, who only believes in sex within marriages. His world is turned upside down when he meets Kate, whom he believes God has sent to him to be his wife… This story looks at how such narrow Christianity screws up an individual, because Daniel is so much the victim of his believes.
The Office Bicycle (http://www.authspot.com/Short-Stories/The-Office-Bicycle.314825) is set in an office and revolves around a woman how has a reputation as a slut, which she has cultivated by telling endless stories of her sexual exploits and one-night-stands. But why is she doing this? Why do we create the images of ourselves that we do?
Dandelion Clock (http://www.authspot.com/Short-Stories/Dandelion-Clock.314831) is about a dysfunctional family having a family picnic. It is seen through the eyes of a disappointed mother, as she looks at her family around her. (This is the shortest of the three).
Please check them out and have a read. You can click on a tab to say if you liked it or not and you can also leave comments about the stories. Please do, I value any feedback.
I intend to publish more stories on this site so do keep an eye on my profile (https://www.triond.com/users/Drew+Payne) because that will contain new links as each new story of mine is published there.
