BACK IN PRINT – Hero is a Four Letter Word

BACK IN PRINT – Hero is a Four Letter Word

What’s that? You can now get a copy of this collection of short stories in paper? A copy of your VERY OWN?


With the fantastic design and layout skills of Rodney V. Smith, Wattpad Star Extraordinaire and a man utterly generous with his time and talent, this short story collection is now available in paperback from all fine online retailers. If you’re the kind of person who prefers ebooks, don’t worry – you can buy the whole collection as an ebook as well!

Get the book from your fave retailer here.

You can also request the print edition in your local bookshop by name and ISBN number: 978-1-7753402-5-6

And if you enjoy the book, it makes a world of difference in my career if you write up a wee review for the book on GoodReads and your favourite online retailers, and sing the book’s praises on Social Media.

The book goes on Pre-Order on October 20th, and will be released October 30th.

Happy Reading!

READING – Ephemera Series

READING – Ephemera Series

The amazing Ephemera Reading Series has done a wonderful job pivoting from an in-person celebration of literature in Toronto to a monthly online event. 

There are over a dozen writers reading from their work, and musicians playing from their hearts on their YouTube Channel.

I recently had the great joy to read in Episode 08: Hope. If you want to watch just my reading, you can find the clip below. But I do encourage you to go and watch every video on the channel and support the amazing creators in their passionate work uplifting local voices.

ANNOUNCEMENT – Hero is moving to Wattpad!

ANNOUNCEMENT – Hero is moving to Wattpad!

Huzzah! My short story collection, HERO IS A FOUR LETTER WORD, is now available exclusively through Wattpad. The collection has been expanded to include more short stories. I’ll be uploading either one whole short-short story, or part of a longer one, each Friday.

You can read the first story and add the collection to your Wattpad Library here. If you don’t have a Wattpad account, it’s free to sign up for and you can delete it at any time.

And keep your eye on my social media, because I’ll be releasing an updated paperback version in the coming year.

About the collection:

Good and Evil. Two sides of the same coin? Or something less defined, something more liminal? Entertaining and always thought-provoking, author J.M. Frey offers a collection of remarkable short stories that explore the grey area of the hero/villain dichotomy in this debut short story collection.

Heroes. Villains. Monsters. Fairy Tales. Myths. Legends.

Who is the good guy, who the bad, and who gets to decide which is which? After all, ‘hero’ is just another four letter word.
