New Free eBook is Live!

My latest short story is currently available through Kindle for free!  Immunization is a quick read that explores and pokes at some of our fears in this strange time as we try to find the balance between overreacting and not doing enough.  (This is purely for entertainment purposes, so please don’t take any of it too seriously.)  It’s free through the 22nd, so grab your copy and be sure to leave me a review!

You can also check out my other Amazon books while you’re there!  This is a great time to curl up and read!  Feel free to do your other online shopping through either of these links, as you’ll help this starving artist continue writing.

Home, a new short story by Ashley O’Melia

I’m very pleased to announce that my short story “Home” is featured on The Penmen Review today.  Please go take a peek and let me know what you think!


This story was inspired by very true events.  I have to think my dear sweet Porkchop, without whom this story and this opportunity would not have been possible.
