#FlashFictionFriday, 3-Nov-2017 – To Love and To Cherish – #flashfic

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the three words left in the comments of last week’s post: juice – Friday – socks 😁 It’s possibly cheating to call this one “flash fiction.” This is a retelling of an existing scene in the book from an alternate POV. In this case, it’s a scene from chapter 17 as seen from Percy’s POV. Click here for more bonus scenes from To Love and …

#FlashFictionFriday 27-Oct-2017 – To Love and To Cherish – #FlashFic

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the three words left in the comments of last week’s post: flow – motivation – missing 😁 It’s not so much that these words led me to do a bonus scene for To Love and To Cherish as it is that I wanted to write one so I made them work. I wrote this on Wednesday, right after clicking the final approval of the upcoming audiobook …

#FlashFictionFriday Sept 14, 2017 Adventures With Ben and Jerry #FlashFic

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses this lovely image of two men kissing, and the word left in the comments of last week’s post: interstice I figured I’d go with an Adventures with Ben and Jerry drabble for this word.

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the 2 words left in the comments of last week’s post: tattoo – edit …and a writing prompt from “Writer’s Write”: Write a short paragraph ending with these words: He would give anything to turn back the clock five minutes.

#FlashFictionFriday August 25, 2017 – Adventures with Harrison and Mason

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the 3 words left in the comments of last week’s post (kiss – family – reunion). I used the words to add to my Adventures with Harrison and Mason collection.

#FlashFictionFriday 06/23/2017 Adventures with Ben and Jerry #FlashFic

Way back when, authors at Torquere would sign up to host the group for a day when they wanted to promote a new release (or whatever). One of …

#FlashFictionFriday Reintroducing Adventures with Ben and Jerry #FlashFic

This week I’ve been mired in edits for Cultivating Love and trying to write a short story, on top of things getting busy in my real life, so I figured this would be a good time to kind of cheat for my Flash Fiction Friday post by reintroducing a couple of recurring characters I used in flash fiction years and years ago. It’s only “kind of” cheating, because I worked the word …
