Now, I Need Free Help!

This is one of those “audience participation” entries in which you help determine a potential project of mine. I’m thinking about putting together the best “hour” of my Five Minute Fiction For Free series, which is to say, putting my 12 most popular stories into book form. So, my first question is, which story or stories did you enjoy the most? I’ve published 21 of them on this blog and it seems pointless for me to list them, not when you can move the mouse over to the right and down to Categories and then click on “Five Minute Fiction For Free.” In fact, that way, you can re-read any that you so desire and of course, that won’t take long! By all means leave comments. In fact, if there is a story (or stories) that you didn’t like or just felt weren’t that strong, let me know that, too. You are welcome to contact me personally as well.

Ironically, I can’t do this for free; I’d need to sell around 100 copies at about $3.00 each. Therefore, I need to honestly know if you would buy such a slender volume at that price. When I say “slender” I’m talking perhaps 50 pages. No or even No! are not bad answers. What would be bad is to receive a bunch of Yesses, order 100 books, and have 99 in my garage.

It is not always easy to mesh creativity with reality and your input will help a great deal.

As a thank you, here’s my favorite scene from The Three Stooges Movie:

About Austin Gisriel

You know the guy that records a baseball game from the West Coast in July and doesn't watch it until January just to see baseball in the winter? That's me. I'm a writer always in search of a good story, baseball or otherwise.

    Hi Austin, I did not realize the activity of you endeavoring is part of your main profession. I thought it is your hobby job. Yes I will buy one book. I thought though your base ball area books are good and more room to write for you. Remember B.J. Surhap? was crying over unwillingness to move down to Atlanta. That kind of emotion of the players had better be written to get fan’s echo by some one like you. Best Regards, Howard & Judy Kim
