Just read it. Great story, Ben. Very haunting -- short, sweet, and a kick in the gut. Congratulations on your first sale! I have a feeling we'll be seeing more. :-)
Thanks, William! I'm glad you liked the story.
Good read. I kept going back and forth as to if what the father saw was reality, or perhaps a mental illness that kept him from seeing Sophie really hadn't gone. I still wasn't entirely sure when I finished the piece.
Good to hear that the ambiguity worked for you. Thanks for the comment!
Hi, Ben! I received your story in my e-mail this morning and just wanted to stop by and say that I thought it was really good! Quite original, as well. I started to read it on my phone during a quick break at work and I was actually late going back 'cause I didn't want to stop reading it, LOL. Hope to read more from you in the future!Congrats on your first sale!!! My first sale was with DSF as well.
Thanks for the kind words!
Just a quick note that I loved, loved, loved your story today. Look forward to reading more from you!
