Bay City Runaway – Part 4

I woke up with a throbbing arm and a head that felt as if a brick had smacked it. I rang for the nurse. I examined my arm. It was braced in a sling and resting on my stomach. I touched my head with my free hand and found a bandage covering a rather large …

What to expect from this site in 2021

For years, this site has been primarily a platform to advertise my publications and share an occasional blogpost, and I've used other sites to post actual literary content. But for 2021, I want to change that! I am moving my existing web serial/novel content to davidwilsonburns.com. I sell much of my writing in traditional book …

Review of Whiff by Rita

Whiff was a DELIGHT! An easy read, yet so poignant. A simple story that draws you into "Jim's world", where scent is EVERYTHING. Enjoyed every minute of this book. What a great break from reality. Can't wait for David Hill Burns next novel. View on Amazon  

Future Projects
