Mainstream Fiction

chisels-The first short story in Written Across the Genres, my anthology available on Amazon, is called “Valuable” by Arleen Eagling. Karen, the protagonist is a widow who is in a tool store where she brings “a starter set of six hand-forged chisels of different sizes, each slipped into separate leather pockets they’d lived in for three years.

“She liked how those tools didn’t shriek and tear wood the way power tools did. This store sold both kinds of tools. The heavyset owner stood at a u-shaped counter in the center of the shop but she avoided eye contact with him. She’d need to compose herself first.”

The genre for “Valuable” is Mainstream Fiction. Written Across the Genres has a variety of stories, essays, and novel excerpts, as examples of genres.
