Necessity is the mother of invention or so the saying goes.
Being a father of a young baby and also the owner of a small business - I find myself lacking the time to read. When I do find time, I'm often tired from a day wrangling baby and business concerns and do not have the energy to tackle a long novel.
I know many of my readers can identify with this phenomenon. Between family and jobs and the many other concerns in our lives, reading for pleasure can take a back seat. I struggle to carve out time and feel guilty when I can't finish a longer novel due to exhaustion.
Instead of beating my head against the wall trying to find time to read longer novels - and listening to readers with the same concerns - I sought to find a solution.
Focusing on stories, novellas, and other works - the Short Reads from Moran Press were born. What are the short reads, you ask? In a sentence:
The Short Reads are works meant to be read in a sitting.
I sought to create a line of books aimed at people with busy schedules and hectic lives - people that wish to read, but are daunted by the sight of a 600 page novel.
To date there are four Short Reads published at Moran Press, with many more to follow. All can be read in the space of an afternoon or evening. If you share my love of reading and struggle to find time for fiction - check out the books available at Moran Press. Have an adventure in a day.
