Why Me, God?!!

All writers ask this when they receive a rejection letter—unless they’re atheists in which case they simply say, “Why me?” Writers never really accept “no”; they want to know why their story didn’t work....

The real kicker for me—and every other writer—is when you have written something truly worthy and it comes back anyway. If you happen to read the anthology you were kicked from and find one or more stories that aren’t as good as yours it can be really confusing. Why do some good stories get kicked?

All the stories in this collection have heart. They will all make you think. They just wouldn’t go in the print book and now I can tell you why each story didn’t make the final cut on the [original] print book.

It’s hard to throw good stories out. So I’m glad I didn’t have to. These are seven great stories that didn’t make it into the first anthology, I Should Have Stayed In Oz, but were too good to toss. So, we did an E-Only edition with the stipulation that if the Ebook did well, we’d consider a print edition.

Well, the Ebook did well.
