Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2022“Comes This Time to Float” is an impressive collection of short stories that cover many genres. I enjoyed all of them, but “Vapor Girl,” “Comes Time to Float,” and “Age Eater” were some of the very favorites that I know will stick with me for a while. Each fictional piece had a common thread of attention to detail and emotions that drew me in. Before each story, Mr. Geez shared why he wrote or the history behind each one, which was fun to know. There was also an accompanying picture that added to my reading pleasure. There’s a lot of heart inside the 19 short tales, which I really felt in “Veneer,” but humor, intriguing insight, and variety were also woven in. It’s a wonderful read where each piece offers something different. A well-written collection that I can easily recommend.
Here is the tour schedule.
A link will be added to the list as each stop becomes available. There will be a post with the link and author information included here for each stop.
Three winners will be randomly picked from the tour comments for a $20, $10, or $5 Amazon Gift Card on May 16th!
Since it’s a short story collection, each stop will be different.
