Tuesday Tales

Being (predominantly) a short story author, I was asked to join the Tuesday Tales invitation-only online writing group, lead by Jean Joachim, in January 2012. The idea is that we’re given a new prompt each week, we write a story using it and post it on our blogs / websites. Then we email the link and first two or three sentences to Jean. She then posts them on her Tuesday Tales blog (on a Tuesday :)), gives us the link then we go out and shout about it.

The stories I wrote appeared linked below when I posted them on this blog, usually Sunday evenings. I then added the relevant Tuesday Tales blog link when they became available and shared them on TwitterFacebook etc.

I decided that this would be my last Tuesday Tales story for the foreseeable as I already write a story a day and want to concentrate on getting my novels online. :)

Single-word prompts are something I regularly give my Monday night workshop and it’s amazing how different our stories can be. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for my Post-weekend Poetry page.

You can also read / download my eBooks and free eShorts at SmashwordsSony Reader StoreBarnes & NobleiTunes BookstoreKobo and Amazon, although the free shorts aren’t free on Amazon, with more (novels) to follow, and I also have a quirky second-person viewpoint story in charity anthology Telling Tales.

I have a new forum and you can follow me on Twitter, friend me on Facebook, like me on Facebook, connect with me on LinkedIn, find me on Tumblr, complete my website’s Contact me page or plain and simple, email meFinally, I also now have a new blog creation service especially for writers: I Can Build Your Writing Blog.
