My ‘5pm Fictions Collection’ (250 stories) is free today… for the last time!

This is the full collection of five volumes (250 stories) written one a day, and is free today, Saturday 31st March.

The stories in these collections vary in length, point of view (first, second and third) and genre.

Volume 1: Here there are family heirlooms, thefts, murders, kidnapping, Chelsea buns, and alien hums. We meet mothers, strange little girls, characters looking to improve themselves, and several cold feet.

Volume 2: There are criminals, victims, revenge, men in uniform, luck and misfortune, sharp edges, sticky red hands, no faded circle of skin. We meet a generous aunt, a fan of Hawaiian shirts, a modern-day Cleopatra, and a young girl with wings.

Volume 3: Here we have neighbourhood watch, chalk and fromage, a picture on a mantelpiece, , a whooshing sound. We meet a daddy’s girl, a cry baby, Dad’s Army, a borrowed dog, an African grey parrot, amateur actors, and others who don’t listen, are doing their best, feel stupid, or should have knocked.

Volume 4: Here we have young and old love, spirited and strained relationships, local and exotic locations, and those who love or loathe shopping, circuses and those who think their life is a circus. We meet a disillusioned artist, an eight-foot tall blue alien, untidy teenagers, a fortune teller, and several dogs and dead (human) bodies.

Volume 5: Here we have a passion wagon, a full moon, police escorts, tugged hearts and curved smiles. We meet a variety of dogs (including borrowed and best in show), a ghost from a half-empty bed, an American werewolf in London, a contented tree, and spouses with revenge on their mind.

First Sentence Fridays week 6… free book promotion

Hello everyone. In December, I came up with a new idea… hoorah! It’s free promotion for all of you with books for sale (or free); eBooks, paperbacks, it doesn’t matter which. And it can be for an individual short story / poem, story / poetry collection, novel or even non-fiction or script / comic book… any book that is available online, free or otherwise.

It runs every Friday (before the 100-word competition results on the second Friday of the month and 6-word FFFs on the last Friday of the month), and somewhere where you can put the first sentence of your book (no more than 20 words) and one sale link in the comments section. As an example, one of mine would be…

Fifty 5pm Fictions (Vol 3) cover smallKaren felt has if she’d been living in a bubble all these years… myBook.to/FiftyFictionsVol3
(which leads to the book pictured right)

So put yours in the comments section of this post (below). Don’t put anything else. No title, no comments. Don’t worry if it doesn’t appear straight away. If you’ve not commented on this site before, I will have to approve it. I’ll be as quick as I can. And I’ll be editing ones that are more than one sentence / link.

The whole point of this exercise is to intrigue my visitors. It doesn’t matter which link you put in as long as it goes directly to somewhere where the reader can buy / download your book, i.e. not to your website’s home page where they then have to go looking for how to find out more / buy your book. If you want to contact me then you can certainly email me if you have any questions.

This will be a weekly feature so if you have more than one book, choose a different one each week. So one sentence (even if it’s one word!) / one link per author per post (and please don’t repeat the same book more than once per month). If the Friday’s been and gone, don’t worry… you can still add the details as a comment until the next post goes up the following Friday and becomes the lead post. When it’s gone, you can still find the link on the First Sentence Fridays page. OK, off you go.
