Madeline's New Jewel

Madeline Mora-Summonte just had a story published on Everyday Fiction. It's called A Quarter For Your Thoughts. This story is amazingly concise and yet filled with feel-able details, excellent dialogue, and poignant insights plus a couple full-bodied characters. How does she do it with such a small number of words?!

Congrats, Madeline, for another highly polished gem!

To read this story go to Madeline's website, and follow the link to Everyday Fiction.
