A little plug for a fabulous short story.... "Convicted"

What if a man could go to jail for the rest of his life…..for murdering a dog?  That is the topic of the short story I wrote and entered into the Tuscany Press story contest.  My story is entitled “Convicted” and an excerpt of it is currently on the Tuscany Press blog.  If you are interested in reading the excerpt, please check it out here—and be sure to leave a comment at the site. 

The good people at Tuscany Press are sharing the excerpts of all the contest entries in an effort to create a little excitement about the stories before any final decisions are made and before the winning stories are published and available for purchase (sometime around Christmas 2013)….

FYI-- The comments will not affect the outcome of the contest- 
they will just serve to create a buzz about it all…..

  1. Wow, Kari, what an interesting and original plot! All sorts of thoughts are circulating in my mind after reading the excerpt - I'm really looking forward to reading the story.

    BTW, I love the new look of your blog - the photos are lovely!

    God bless:)

    1. Vicky-

      It was a fun story to write. Not sure how well it will fare in the contest but hopefully, God has something planned for it. We will see......

      Thanks! God Bless, Kari

  2. Very interesting! I posted a comment (thought not approved yet).

    Funny, I have a young adult novel submission into Tuscany as well. I hope they post a excerpt soon.

    Keep up the good work!

  3. BTW - if you are up to it, I would like you to read a draft of my novel, so I can get your feedback. Is this something you would be interested in doing?

    1. Pete-

      I would love to read your novel. You can contact me through e-mail when you are ready to share it with me. My "work" e-mail is kari[at]thelifeidreamed[dot]com or, I believe, Dea has my personal e-mail. Either one is fine.

      I would actually like to have you read the entire short story I wrote also b/c I think it would lend itself well to a movie and if you were interested I'd love to collaborate with you....

      I look forward to hearing from you.

      God Bless!

  4. Kari,

    I would love to read the rest of your story. you can email me at pbauer[at] I'll send you a copy when I clean up the latest draft. We should get together and chat about the challenges of being a Catholic writer. It'd be fun!
