Short Stories & Flash Fiction

lightning 143523Having seen one of my interviewees Rosanne Dingli say on a LinkedIn thread: “someone should write a blog soon about all the wonderful indie books available by very capable writers”, I challenged them to give me a <15-word synopsis for their book(s)… they are accepting the challenge and their books are appearing here.

What I’m after is:

  • genre
  • and summary in no more than 15 words (a test of your editing skills :)).

You can email me these details for up to 5 of your books (please don’t paste them into this page’s comments section). My free and $0.99-$2.99 eBooks are detailed on the Books – mine page.

    Hi Morgen, I really am amazed at the amount of work you put in on behalf of so many writers. A huge THANK YOU is well deserved. Do you ever get to leave your computer?

      You’re very welcome, Phyllis. I do leave my computer to walk my dog (who’s glaring at me as we speak – we’ve not been out yet today) but even then I’m writing, editing, reading… or listening to audiobooks if it’s raining.

       

I'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
