Seedy Hills, an odd little town…

I’m working on a new series of short stories that occur in the small rural Kentucky town of Seedy Hills. The city is named after the beautiful summer wild flowers that cover the hills in the area around the town. Oddly enough, the city is remarkably similar to the city of Russellville where I now reside. Many of the landmarks, people, local issues and oddities play into the stories.

The stories involve Vampires, Ghosts, UFOs, murders and more.  All of them tied together by the main character, Eric Green. Eric is a reporter for the local newspaper. He’s a stubborn, arrogant, self centered semi-retired writer who knows he has more experience and talent than anyone else at the small town paper, including the bumbling management. With his connections, talent, keen smell for a good story and hard work he solves the case and saves the day. All the time, sarcastically analyzing the backward city he calls home, and the people who live there.

Through the series of short stories Eric learns about life, love and the fact that he, and other people have feelings. Late in life, the rusty old reporter learns that being from an odd little run down town may not be all that bad.

I’ve got about half the book completed and proofread. I would be interested in anyone wanting to be beta readers. I feel it may be funny but it’s hard to judge your own humor. I’m a little warped and I know I find a lot of things funny that others my not. We’ll just have to see how that goes. If you want to pre read this series leave a comment and your contact info. Maybe you can help me make my next best seller!
