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.

Free eBook today only: INTRUSION: A boyhood rivalry in World War Two

imagesRosalind Minett‘s first book in the ‘Relative Invasion’ series is free today on Amazon. The book’s description is…

In 1937, as the adults worry about the onset of war, Billy’s has just begun. He so wanted a play-mate but it came in the form of a manipulative cousin, the frail and artistic Kenneth. The adults only see the porcelain looks of Kenneth and not his darker soul. Emotionally neglected or misunderstood by parents and aunt, and bullied by uncle and cousin, Billy imagines he owns the precious Cossack sabre of his father’s work colleague. This sabre becomes an icon that sustains Billy through Kenneth’s psychological invasions, through disruption and evacuation and then the shock of war, but might this icon damage as well as protect?

It’s available from http://www.amazon.co.uk/INTRUSION-boyhood-rivalry-Relative-Invasion-ebook/dp/B00NW97US6 and http://www.amazon.com/INTRUSION-boyhood-rivalry-Relative-Invasion-ebook/dp/B00NW97US6.

I shall be reviewing it on 12th November – see Book & Story Reviews for the other books and stories reviewed to-date.
