The Tales of Joe & Erotic Tales From Joe (Titles Subject to Change)

Both of these books will be a collection of short stories from the past and present. The goal is each collection at least twenty stories with a total word count of 100,000 or more. I may combine both books in to one, with a divider between the Tales of Joe and Erotic Tales From Joe. I’m discussing this with the editor.
