Hi, Graham.
Kelly Abbott

Thank you Kelly, for your effort in promoting the short story genre. One of my first blogs on Medium was to question the step motherly treatment given to short stories. I have a novel and a short story collection. Most traditional publishers accepted the novel for consideration but felt short stories are not commercial enough.This is without reading a single word of the stories I had written. So I went ahead and self published the short stories as an ebook. I am grateful that there are so many evolved readers around the world who have appreciated my short stories. This reach would have been impossible with traditional publishing. I love reading and writing short stories and short films. I know many others who feel the same way and I often wonder why there is a resistance to this fine art of brevity.
