Ashes to Ashes, Oranges to Oranges Free Preview Page

ASHESCOVERamazonHi, I’m Eric Henderson, and here’s everything you need to know about my book Ashes to Ashes, Oranges to Oranges.

Ashes to Ashes, Oranges to Oranges is a book of 12 short stories written by me, with 12 beautiful illustrations by Marybeth Chew. The genre is magical realism, which means that the stories start out in everyday reality, then take a sharp left turn into the unexplainable.

Ashes to Ashes, Oranges to Oranges is available as an ebook on Amazon and Smashwords, and also as a paperback on Amazon.

Here are three sample stories from the book – click each link to read the story for free:
