Flash Fiction Friday #08

Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “short”, but for the purposes of this “Flash Fiction Friday” post it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene written from a photo prompt. This week got my photo inspiration image from the good folks at Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. FFfAW is a weekly blog hop, and you can check out the other posts for the week of 5/17-5/23/2016 …

Flashback Scene from Sam’s POV #03 (Chap. 4)

’Til Death Do Us Part is now out in eBook formats through JMS Books, LLC (and all the usual distributors), and will be available in print format on June 30, 2016. This series of blog posts was motivated by a comment from one of the book’s reviewers, Bethany at Rainbow Gold Reviews, who made the comment that she wished the flashback scenes had been from Sam’s POV instead of from Henry’s. The flashback scenes chronicle the …

Newsletter & Contest

I’ve just created an announcement only group over on groups.io for the purpos of sending out a monthly newsletter. The May, 2016 newsletter is now posted, and the next one will come out sometime in June. The newsletter will summarize what’s been happening with my writing lately, and what’s upcoming. It’s so easy to miss a blog/Facebook/Twitter post, and many people don’t want that much info coming at them, anyway. A single …

Rainbow Snippets #11

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh?

Flash Fiction Friday #07

Today’s prompt picture is: I thought this image would work well for another installment in Adventures with Harrison and Mason (Click the corresponding category for more of their stories). “Look, Jaxon,” Mason said. “This is another opening …

WIP Update & Pretty Backyard Flower Pics

WIP Update What are Sam and Henry up to during the summer after Henry’s rescue? They’d thought adopting Buddy/Aiden was going to be smooth sailing, but will it be? From This Day Forward is a short story targeted for JMS’s Summer Lovin’ submissions call. It’s a direct sequel to ’Til Death Do Us Part. I’m not 100% sure anymore that this will ultimately become something dramatic enough to stand alone as its own story. …

7-7-7 WIP Challenge

So, Heloise West tagged me to take the 7-7-7 WIP challenge. Don’t know what that is? The rules are as follows: Go to page 7 (or page 77) of one of your WIPs. Go to the seventh line on that page and share the next seven sentences. Then pay it forward by tagging seven more writers to continue the challenge. I have two WIPs going right now. One is titled From …

Flash Fiction Friday #06 – ’Til Death Do Us Part

Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “extremely short”, but for the purposes of my “Flash Fiction Friday” posts it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene written from a photo prompt. Today’s prompt picture is: Since the men in this painting match both the coloring and relative sizes of the main characters in my recent release, ’Til Death Do Us Part, I thought I’d make up a bonus scene featuring …
