This is the first of three volumes written in response to prompts supplied by www.storyaday.org, and is free today, Tuesday 17th October.
The stories in these collections vary in length, point of view (first, second and third) and genre.
Characters include the heart-tugging ‘Threadbare Girl’ (who we meet early on then conclude with), a blue-blooded couple with a rocking horse, husbands and wives seeking revenge, an alien on a blind date, a grandfather afraid of heights, two historical figures, a young girl with a very vivid imagination, a mother’s desperate hospital visit and others portraying random acts of kindness. We have the Bermuda Triangle, the Wild West and more than one shaggy dog story. From Chelsea buns to casseroles we share highs and lows but they all go to show what can be done with a prompt, a few hours and a colourful imagination.
The full list of stories can be found at https://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/books-mine/short-stories/story-a-day-may and the eBook downloaded free via http://mybook.to/StoryADayVol1 (which links to the Amazon store in your country).
