SEAN HILL - Very Short Stories
will speak & sign
Very Short Stories:
300 Bite Size Works of Fiction.
In 2009, Sean Hill, founder of Austin's own The Hideout Theater, came up with a brilliant project that combined his love of technology with his love of writing: he created the Twitter feed @VeryShortStory, where he writes 140 character stories. The feed quickly gather followers, and now he's gathered the best of his Very Short Stories into this colleciton.
Celebrating brevity, precision, and the art of subtle communication, author Sean Hill has crafted hundreds of engaging, evocative stories that conjure an entire novel in a sentence or two. A child who sets fires in hopes of meeting his firefighter father. A lonely woman, heading home from another bad blind date, who asks her cabbie out for a drink. The compelling stories in this one-of-a-kind collection are never longer than 140 characters but pack the emotional punch and storytelling genius of lengthy works of fiction.
Sean Hill lives in Austin. When not writing fiction, he provides copywriting and internet marketing consulting for clients. He can often be found performing improv comedy around town with his friends.
In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
