Please consider my romantic venture, “By the Light of the Moon”, complete at 7594 words, for publication in TQR. The capital is a light, humorous, sentimental tale about love. In spite of Joe’s garbage covered apron and limited resources, he pursues and wins Susan’s affection with charm, a little insider information, and a healthy dose of fate. “By the Light of the Moon” is set on a university campus in 1968, a time when innocence and tradition were still the norm. The manuscript is attached below.
In 1987, I published “Loose Ends,” Dorrance, a memoir, and a series of fictions from 1992 to 1995. “The Fate of Dicky Paponovitch” won Raconteur of the Month, May 1994, Raconteur, Susan Carroll Publishing. Once I retired in 2015, I took up trying to get published again. Capital Gains have appeared in The Piker Press, Rue Scribe, The Starlit Path magazine and Art Post Magazine. I wrote and illustrated a children’s picture book, “Gus at Work”, CreateSpace, 2016. I am a member of the Bethlehem Writers Group.
