Flash Preview for Friday, June 24, 2016

I’ve got a little Flash Fiction Friday thing I’m doing. While there isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “extremely short”, for the purposes of my “Flash Fiction Friday” posts it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene (aka “Drabble”) written from a photo prompt. Each Friday, I will post a preview of the image I’ll be using for my bit of flash the following Friday. If you’d like to join me in …

Mason blinked open his eyes and placed what he hoped was a comforting hand on …

Review “Roundup” – ’Til Death Do Us Part

I put the dreaded scare quotes around “Roundup” in the title since there’s only one more that’s trickled in since my last Review Roundup post (not counting a repost of the only negative one I’ve seen on a blog, a full month after the first time they posted it… not sure why they did that). Anyway, I’m still expecting three more review sites to post something. Two blogs that requested copies, saying they …

From This Day Forward

Last night I finished up a short story that is a direct sequel to ’Til Death Do Us Part. Beta readers are currently working it over, then I’ll give it a final polish before submitting it.

WIP Update & Pretty Backyard Flower Pics
