This is the first time I have joined in with the Short Stories on Wednesdays meme, and I plan to join in with it whenever I can. I love both reading and writing short stories, and I am also focusing on writing short stories for the first quarter of this year.
On to the book at hand. I am currently half way through While I'm Still Myself by Jeremy Mark Lane. This collection was published yesterday, and I am rather proud of my signed copy which winged itself across the Atlantic Ocean and into my hands. The book feels lovely in my hand which is why I had to buy a signed copy, even though I also have a copy on my Kindle. (Long live paperbacks!)
Jeremy Mark Lane is a versatile author who has got his head around the short story form. Each of the stories I have read in this book so far has made me smile, made me think, and has basically given me that "I liked that a lot" factor. My favourite so far is called The Reflection, Only Hers which is a beautifully written, clever piece which merits a re-read very quickly after the first.

I am really enjoying this collection so far, and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the stories.
As always, thanks for reading. x
