When Babies Dream


Hi Everyone:

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes...

I just published a short story I'd like to promote and hopefully get some buzz going and some reviews. This is published on Kindle but will be available on all other ereading devices very soon.

What would everyone think of an iphone app for a single short story? I think the iphone and itouch are perfect for short stories more than those devices are good for entire novels. Thanks, everyone.


Rescued from neglect, an eighteen month old biracial girl named Ciara is sent to live with Jim, a young and single white foster father who is afraid to take her at first. Over the next eight months, Ciara and Jim become the most unlikely of families until time carries both away.

Told through a dream, Ciara waits for a tornado to come for her. The tornado is strong enough to carry away but inside things are calm, just a little windy. Safe inside her tornado, Ciara finds windows of all kinds, some with fancy curtains, some even shaped like triangles floating all around her like moons. When she looks out the windows, Ciara sees her favorite memories of her life with Jim playing like scenes from a movie.

Forced to see Jim only in dreams, she relives the time when her life was safe and she got to be a kid. From the moment she was taken away from her mom to the moment when Jim was carried away, too is what Ciara sees, When Babies Dream.

A short story, easy to enjoy in a single viewing, and perfect for when you are between novels or have a limited time to read.
