They

This is the first epistolary exchange series between myself and author Julie Kusma. Be sure to follow or subscribe to The “Dear J” Letters so you won’t miss a single letter.

They – Part 1

Excerpt:

Dear J,

I should have left this town when you asked me. It has been two months since I received a letter from you, and I’m starting to worry. I wonder, though, if things are the same where you are because strange things are happening here. Continue reading They – Part 1 here.


They – Part 2

Excerpt:

Dear Janelle, 

I suppose I owe you an apology for my absence these past few months. You won’t like this, but my work is all-consuming. I am pleased to learn you are well, albeit rattled by the local climate. Nonetheless, you are well. Continue reading They – Part 2 here.


They – Part 3

Excerpt:

Dear Jocelyne,

I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I am to read your letter. First, I want to say you are correct about David. I saw him at the grocery store with a young twenty-something woman.

They – Part 5

Excerpt:

Dear Jocelyne,

Your last correspondence confirmed your arrogance and sense of superiority. Throughout the years of our friendship, I have always known your deep-seated assumptions about my character. You never miss a chance to imply that you think I am weak, even though it is so subtle. You must realize; I am fully enlightened about your sentiments. I am glad I followed my instinct and stayed in town rather than follow you like a puppy on its best behavior. Continue reading They – Part 5 here.
