For a limited time–Friday, October 5 through Sunday, October 7–Amazon will be offering a free copy of Kiss Shot, a book of short stories by poet and author Collin Kelley. Here’s the book description:
Award-winning author Collin Kelley (Conquering Venus and Remain In Light) explores his Southern roots with this collection of four short stories set in the town of Cottonwood, Georgia. In “How Fanny Got Her House,” a devoted maid recalls the hijinks surrounding her employer’s death from a brain tumor, while a teenage boy comes to terms with his sexuality during an unexpected game of pool in the title story, “Kiss Shot.” A woman escaping an abusive relationship arrives in New Orleans during a rain storm and wanders into the famed “Clover Grill” on Bourbon Street, and “I Got A Name” follows the trials and tribulations of an overweight woman looking for love at a community theater company.
Southern Spines contributor Stacie Boschma sat down for an interview with Collin at Thinking Man Tavern in Atlanta, Ga. They discussed everything from self-publishing to Margaret Atwood and her love for the “modern telegraph” of Twitter.
