A Lesson In Love


   Hello, and Happy Friday to you!

   Let's get down to business, shall we? Today's short is actually the first of a three part novelette, titled "The Heart's Filthy Lesson". There were a few more things I could've told in it, but I decided to hold some of them off for another time. In the end, my main goal is to serve the story, and those things were just unnecessary this time around.

   Maybe next time!

   Anyway, this novelette chronicles a budding college romance between aspiring detective Reggie Harper and school paper head/journalism major Maryanne Hillard. Part one is a little more mundane, but things never stay that way for long in the life of Reggie Harper.

   The three parts of "The Heart's Filthy Lesson" and last week's short "When I Met You" set up certain events in my impending novel "Bully For You". However, you don't need to read them to enjoy it. They just add more depth and color to certain things in the book. Consider them appetizers, though certainly not filler, served before the main course.

   For now, happy reading, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled and check back next Friday for part two!
