The Memory of a Salt Shaker: a short tale about loss, love, and salt.


In this romantic, magical realist short story, Bert discovers the salt in an ordinary salt shaker gives him the power to see his life through the eyes of his deceased wife. This magical realist story is first in a collection of stories exploring memory and loss in an effort to show that which connects all people, the power of love.

The Memory of a Salt Shaker first appeared November 2011 in issue 15 of Up The Staircase Quarterly and was nominated by the editors for the 2012 Million Writers Award.

The story has been up on Amazon (0.99) and Smashwords (free) for two weeks. And now it's available for free at the Kobo and Sony stores.

For more information, including the idea for the story, please visit my website The Space Within These Lines.

Thanks for giving it a look.

I recently put the story up at XinXii. I may use them in the future to distribute my book to the iTunes Store. It was a pretty painless process.

The story has been up on Amazon (0.99) and Smashwords (free) for four weeks. And the book has been downloaded 173 times between the two sites.

It's available for free at the Kobo, Sony, Barnes and Noble, and Apple iBooks stores.

The Memory of a Salt Shaker is still free at most online retailers. Also, Paige Ambroziak recently wrote a lovely review of the story at her website Twisting Phlox.

Thanks, Paige.
