Synopsis

TRUE: True stories from a small town #1

This is the first revision of the book True #1. I have dozens of true stories and I will split them between the two volumes, revise them accordingly, and list those revisions here. I have added four more short stories to this revision, an expanded Earth's Survivors one Preview (The Entire first chapter) and I added a free preview of the first Dreamer's Worlds book, also the entire first chapter.

I am in the process of adding another 4 or 5 true stories to True #2 and that will shortly be back. For those of you who liked the short stories, I hope you enjoy this revision.

Six Stories... The Body. A ride in his Fathers truck as a small boy turns into a life long bad memory... Happy Holidays. Dad comes home but it isn't to celebrate the holidays... The Trip.
This was my first large leap into the hard drugs arena...About cheating and death. My first look at the two subjects as a young adult...
The Last Ride. It was a busy Friday night driving cab in Watertown New York. He didn't think too much about her when the woman got into his car, but a short distance down the road all of that changed... The Phone call. Coming home from prison you expect that everyone would be as happy as you are. Maybe not...

These six stories look at death drugs, and more and how those things affected me directly, first as a child and then much later in life as an adult...

The man in the water seemed strange to me, but at four I didn't really understand death, I only understood that there was something wrong with the man, and the group of men gathered around him, including my father, only served to make me wonder what it was...

She was drunk, that much was clear, at least I thought it was. It was a busy Friday night driving Taxi so I took my first assessment of her at face value. Another drunk... And it was early too... But she was not drunk, and I had no more pulled back into traffic when I realized that...

Dad had been gone for the better part of that fall. He showed up drunk, angry, and with a rifle...

I had already stepped into drugs and alcohol, namely speed, but I had heard about acid...


Also includes a Free Extended preview of Earth's Survivors Book One: Rising From The Ashes for Amazon customers. And a free extended look at Dreamer's Worlds Book One: The Girl In The Stone...

Diana Wagman NY Times Book Review 4 of 5 Stars "True Confections isn’t a rollicking novel, since Alice isn’t the rollicking type, but it’s got everything: humor, treachery, class struggle, racism, murder, capitalism and mass quantities of candy.
