Short Story Sale to Shock Totem
The story is one I attempted a few years ago, in the earliest days of my writing. Ultimately that attempt failed and I stuffed the story in the folder marked "Retired" never to be spoken of again. This year, still enamoured by the basic premise but aware a huge number of changes were needed, I tried again. To my surprise, out popped a related yet completely different story. It's about a rich man's change of world-view following heart replacement surgery, and his sceptical employee who is in no hurry to forgive him for his past mistakes. There's also something wicked-horrible crawling around in the cellar, too!
'Alan Roscoe's Change of Heart' will be out in July!
