Coffee Cup Tales
by Richard Keller
From author Richard Keller, founder of Wooden Pants Publishing: Coffee. Consumed by two people at a small table in a local cafe it leads to conversation. Sometimes the talk is hushed. Other times, thanks to multiple cups of coffee and perhaps a pastry, volume and animated descriptions increase. And this is when the author catches snippets that make a wonderful subject for a story. This is how Coffee Cup Tales: stories inspired by overheard conversations at the coffee shopÂ came to fruition. At first, these conversations distracted me from other projects. However, I eventually realized the conversations were filled with story ideas -- the difference between dates and dating, using your hand to cover a cough, asking God's permission to join the WWE. Coffee Cup Tales provides stories on all of these topics. <There's plenty to laugh at in the tales contained in this anthology of short stories. There's also a good deal of romance, some religion, and a bit of fantasy thrown in. In other words, Coffee Cup Tales is for readers of all genres who want to feel good after they've finished the book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.
