My friend Erica has just published a book of short stories
(and weirdly enough many are set in Nebraska.)
If she wasn't such a nice person, I'd be totally jealous.
OK, I am totally jealous, but here's a blurb and a link in case any one wants to check them out.
Omaha Beach is a collection of short stories, many of them set near a fictitious lake outside of Omaha, Nebraska. Like the more famous setting of the World War II D-Day battles, Omaha Beach and its environs have their tales of survival. Omaha Beach is the debut short-fiction collection of writer and editor Erica Olson Jeffrey.
