Aspen and Sonder Publishes “We, Their Sons” by Jeff Isacksen

We, Their Sons by Jeff IsacksenBack in January, I created Aspen and Sonder with a big intention to help smart, creative people launch projects I love (and projects I thought other people would love too).

After 10 months, I couldn’t be more proud than to publish We, Their Sons, the first of seven short stories by author Jeff Isacksen.

Jeff writes smart, dark, complicated stories about families and relationships set against a fantastical backdrop—grave fairytales if you will.

Anyway, I love them and I hope you do too.

We’ve published We, Their Sons on Amazon as an eBook.

Aspen and Sonder Signs Author Jeff Isacksen

Author Jeff IsacksenWe’re excited to announce we’ve signed author Jeff Isacksen to Aspen and Sonder! The first of seven short stories will be available on the Kindle on SEPTEMBER 13th!

“His stories are fantastic. The first time I read his work, I knew I had to find a way to share them with you. I can’t tell you too much about the world or the stories yet. Just know that they’re dark fantasy with big themes on death and what haunts each of us. It’s a reflection back on us and a sort of grim reality that can be the human race (and not always told through the lens of a human character).” —Kaci Kai, Publisher
