Freebie eBook and question from writer Michael Ross

Hello everyone. I know you don’t usually hear from me unless it’s a guest piece, book review or I set you some writing exercises, but tonight I have something a little different.

Michael Ross coverBeing Black Friday, you’re probably busy grabbing all those last-minute (or in Amazon’s case last-second) bargains and here’s another one for you… a freebie actually.

Author Michael Ross has made his short story collection Twenty Short Stories – Settling a Score free for the next three days (today, tomorrow, Sunday), and as he says, “A good way not to spend money on Black Friday”. You can download it from http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G4E5038 or for those of us in the UK (yep, I have it and will be reviewing it in February) from http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00G4E5038.

Now for those of you eagle-eyed readers who spotted the second part of this blog post’s title, Michael also has a question for you so I’m handing you over to the man himself to explain…

I am in my final year of a part time 6-year course at Bristol University. For my final dissertation (The BIG one), I have penciled in the following for my essay. “The short story – why is it not longer?” Do you think you and @your@ people would like to offer a suggestion or two?

Of course you would because you’re so lovely. So to do so, and feel the warm glow of helping a fellow writer for the time it takes to drink a cup of tea (unless you’re like me and have little milk so it takes a while… and my other half would say I cut a short story long!)… please contact Michael with your suggestion (or three – he asked for two but I did say you were lovely) via email (preferred) or you can leave a comment below and I’ll pass it on. Thank you.

I’m going off now to make a cup of tea (Typhoo One Cup, in case you’re curious, with a little bit of tea, little bit of sugar, little bit of milk) and ponder Michael’s question…
