My novella Lemon Man has been published in paperback and as a Kindle ebook by Creative Guy Publishing.
From the cover: Russell Hamilton is having a hell of a time. His marriage is falling apart, his life-long affliction with sleeping sickness is getting worse, and even managing the simplest matters is pushing his psyche to the breaking point. If only he could go back to the beginning, back to the point where his life made sense, when happiness could be found in a simple ride on a motorbike. Back before the Lemon Man…
Mike Stone, the author of the collections Fourtold and Memory Bones, presents this story of a man simply trying to make sense of a senseless situation, a man haunted by his own deeds and misdeeds, in more ways than he can ever imagine.
