If the Inspirational Short Stories website has inspired you, please consider making a minimum $7 donation to support its ongoing development.

I take each donation as a sign of personal encouragement to keep on writing positive, uplifting stories for you to enjoy. Consider it the equivalent of keeping an author in coffee and donuts after long hours of writing positive stories. (After all much of the writing happens during the late evenings when coffee is much needed, let alone delicious donuts to nourish the body as well as the soul).

As a thank you I'd also like to give you my new e-book,  for your encouragement. This very special e-book is called The Inspirational Short Stories. I have selected the most popular of my stories into this book for an easier read.

Save it on your computer or print it so that you may read a story when you have a moment just for yourself. The book is 115 pages long and contains the following stories:

I would like to thank Colin Dunbar for editing the book and make it look pleasing to the eye. I have to say my own attempts weren't all the brilliant so it was really wonderful to see how a professional made my book look like a book - in record time. (Two days, actually. Not bad!) You can find his services at 

Colin's son Bronson designed the cover. Find Bronson at 

Thank you, Colin and Bronson for your professional work!
