Note: All but one of these stories are available for free in ebook format, however, they are under the author's married name, Stephanie Flint.
"1000 Words" is a collection of ten short stories, each approximately one thousand words in length. They range from science fiction and fantasy, to adventure and horror. Each short story is accompanied by its own book cover. This was a capstone project meant to merge photographic illustration with creative writing.
