Welcome to the Earl of Plaid Lit Journal. We are here to establish believable characters in unreal worlds. We want to introduce the world to life and sympathies of a fictional character. Enjoy the escape of fictional conflict from real life.
The Earl of Plaid is now accepting short story submissions to be featured in our Monthly Newsletter
Lost in the Clouds is officially out! Neville Canton was about as average as any man can be. He had a mediocre job, a pleasant wife, an on-going feud with his sister, and an average case of cancer that took his life.
But death wasn't the end of his problems and even average people have to learn to overcome.
Now trapped in a cloud between the living and the dead, he must find his way to the afterlife.
With the help of a spiritual guide he navigates through seven challenges; seven tasks to sever his final connections to the mortal world.
If he fails, he forfeits his eternity and the consequences may be worse than death.
