My ‘5pm Fictions Collection’ (250 stories) is free today!

This is the full collection of five volumes (250 stories) written one a day, and is free today, Saturday 21st October.

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.

My ‘Story A Day May Collection’ is free today!

This is the full collection of three volumes (93 stories) written in response to prompts supplied by www.storyaday.org, and is free today, Friday 20th October.

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

Volume 1: 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.

Volume 2: In this collection there are stories of revenge, overcoming obstacles, newfound and lost love, shopping, chocolate, legends of history, and the occasional alien or two.

Volume 3: There are new and lost relationships, homages, crimes afoot, writer’s block, characters with and without friends, humans and non-humans, scratches, squeaks and barks.

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/SADMCollection (which links to the Amazon store in your country).
