Publisher's Summary

Abandoned tells three tales of people lost and trying to find their way. The journey from here to there isn't ever as straight and obvious as it seems.
"To Build a Helicopter" recounts story of a man whose girlfriend unceremoniously dumps him at a party because of his lack of ambition. He'll seek solace in two piles: one of LEGO pieces, and the other cocaine. He'll use them both to build something to prove his worth.
"The Meanings of Words" is a story of a man looking through the glass window of a hair salon, at the beautiful stylist inside. He knows all of her curves, her smile, everything about her. He's got a message for her, but doesn't know if he can find the courage to say it.
"Shots and Strippers" examines one fateful night in the life of a party kid. What starts out as a little get-together turns violent when drinks and dancers swirl into chaos. He'll try to keep his composure and control of the situation as sanity abandons everyone in the house.

Powerful and Poetic ~ WoW!

I really like this collection of short stories: Abandoned. All three stories tie in together in various forms of abandonment. I thought the author showed soulfulness in his writing, especially in "To Build a Helicopter". That was a powerful story and I love the way he built the helicopter.

"The Meanings of Words" was awesome as well. I liked the poetic tone of this one. And finally, "Shots and Strippers". This one was equally good and I loved the ending. Quite nice.

Jim Heskett: Great writing with a powerful message.

Joe DiNozzi: Powerful narrative. Voice inflections in all the right places for an exact delivery. I look forward to more from both. Great job!
