This is my new book that has now been released by austinmcauley at www.austinmcauley.com and it is a book of five short stories. It's a great book when having a coffee, or just having a break for a while. There's something for everyone too, from love to murder!
This story is about a small group of friends who discover the reality of life and how they overcome it, by learning about saving the environment. It is a published work and can be found at www.xlibris.com.au Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
