BOOK NEWS: FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN
Am pleased to say there is now one Amazon link to both the paperback and Kindle versions of my debut flash fiction collection, From Light to Dark and Back Again. The Kindle version has the wonderful Look Inside feature on it (which I always use when I’m browsing books online).
Sorry again for the no-show last night. It has been one of those weeks but hopefully back to normal now.
FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
Once Upon a Time discusses story openings. I love the classic beginning of a fairytale but don’t use this myself. I try to “hit the ground running” and I share an example of one of my story openings which will hopefully appear in my next flash fiction collection. I also discuss what I like story openings to “do”.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
How to Annoy a Writer is one of those perennial themes. I share some of what I’ve come across and also suggest what might happen to you if you annoy a crime writer, a fantasy/fairytale writer and a horror storyteller. Any thoughts on what has annoyed you as a writer would be welcome.
I discuss the one quality I like to see in any character in any genre. What is it? Go and see! Do you agree with me?
