THE BARGAINS BELOW - Short Fiction by Dennis Lowery

The Bargains Below (FICTION: Escrire)

ATTENTION SHOPPERS

Laurie was new to town but not to shopping. She was the consummate bargain hunter and always scored big with sales savings. Then she had one of those days that forever marks you. And nothing is ever the same again. A short story for the holiday shopping season.

A few early-reader (pre-publication) comments:

“Well written! The story flowed well and kept me eager to read on!” –Margaret Pypher

“Good lord I’m never shopping for bargains again!! Brilliant!” –Rea de Miranda

“Coooool. I lolled a few times too. Can’t wait to share.” –Nina Anthonijsz

 

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
