Criteria for Acceptable Flash Fiction

Is there a definable plot? Do you have a clear beginning? A strong centerpiece? A definitive ending? Does your story make its point and drive it home, hard? Though not all stories need to be forceful to fit into this small genre, it’s a trend that follows flash throughout the years. Still, if your story doesn't have that hard-hitting theme and end by smacking into a wall, don't worry; it's not a necessity.

Other Contest Details

Poems qualify as Flash Fiction.

All entries will be published in a special anthology in time for Christmas gift giving--if at least 72 entries are received!

About Halloween Kisses

One kiss can change everything!
Dulcie has had a secret crush on her co-worker Rowan for ages, but she’s too shy to let him know, and preoccupied with raising her rebellious teenage sister. When she bumps into him in the darkness of a haunted barn, she can't resist stealing just one kiss.

That kiss enchants Rowan. If only he could figure out the identity of the woman whose kiss haunts him. While running from a troubled past, he may find that the woman he least suspects could lead him out of the dark forever.

1. When did you write Halloween Kisses?

It’s a brand-new release that I wrote over the summer. It’s available for pre-release now for only 99cents, and will be published on October 6.

2. What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

When I decided to write a Halloween book, I knew I wanted a scene at a masquerade ball. This led me to the idea of a very shy woman who wears a metaphorical mask every day, hiding herself and her feelings in order to shield herself from rejection. Halloween is the day she finally finds the strength to shed her mask and show the world, and the man she loves, who she really is.

3. Why do readers buy Halloween Kisses?

Sweet romance fans will buy it because it’s the perfect time of year for a tender love story with a Halloween theme.

Take 5 With Author Lily Bishop

Lily Bishop, one of my author friends, has a new release to tell you about.

About Lily Bishop

On the personal side, Lily was born near Athens, Georgia. She attended the University of Georgia,  and received a Bachelor's in English, and then enrolled in the MFA program in Creative Writing at Purdue University. After a year, she left the program and moved to Atlanta. Later Lily received her Master's in Public Administration. She works full-time as a database administrator for a university.

Lily makes her home in the Upstate of South Carolina. She is married to her best friend, and they have two children. When she is not writing, she and her family are playing German or Euro-style board games.

Lily writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Her goal is to blur the lines between romance, chick lit, and women's fiction. Her books are peppered with family members who make things complicated and couples who can't seem to find a way to be together. Lily writes with a Southern flair, but her characters find themselves in exotic locations and dangerous situations. She loves to hear from her readers.

Now, Take 5 With Lily Bishop

1. What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to food and drink?

I love Mexican-style food, but I especially love nachos. I could eat nachos every day. What goes better with nachos than a margarita or a good pitcher of sangria?

2. What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to books?

The romance genre is known for its tropes, or basic story-lines. I love the kidnapped heroine trope. I would buy and read them all day. They have gotten harder to find, since it’s not the politically correct story right now.

3. What's the best review you ever received?

A new reader recently commented on For the Win, my third book:

I fell into reading the first book of the City Lights book series and I'm so very happy I did! It is a wonderful series and love love all the main characters in these series from Fox and Laura, Lee and Elizabeth to Ric and Lindsay. All of them are wonderful and I'm looking forward to continuing to read about them and other characters! Thank you so much Lily!

She used her name. I don’t know her, but I saw that she reviewed all four of my books as soon as she read them. The reviews popped up one after the other. I was honored and touched that she fell in love with these characters – because I love them. It’s like when someone tells you that your child did an amazing thing. I just wanted to grab her and hug her. That’s frowned upon in literary circles, so I will settle for giving her a virtual thank you here.

4. Do you listen to music during any of the phases of writing a book? If you do, what kind of music?

Mostly I write to the tune of the television, but sometimes I listen to music to block out other sounds. I like Pandora music, and I have stations set up around the Indigo Girls, eighties country, and nineties country.

5. What would you change about your career path if you could wave a magic wand?

I’m happy in the job that I have now, but if I could wave a magic wand, I would work fewer hours at my day job and write more. I’m not sure I would want to write full-time, since I need that interaction with other people to fuel my stories.

About Breaking Even (City Lights Book 4)

Everyone wants to be a winner. Nobody wants to be a loser. But for Lindsey Todd, all she wants is to break even and get back to the real world, focusing on graduate school in South Carolina. However, with her heart still in Caribbean with the sexy Ric Salzana, Lindsey's mind is miles away.

When Ric Salzana realizes that old enemies have resurfaced and that Lindsey is in danger, he'll do anything to save her--even if it means jeopardizing everything they've worked so hard to build. Can Ric keep Lindsey safe before all the cards start crumbing down or is their downfall just the bad luck of the draw?

Thursday3Some: When Love Returns by Judythe Morgan

I'm pleased to shine the Thursday3Some Spotlight on my friend, Judythe Morgan, and her novel When Love Returns, Book 2, Fitzgerald Family.

(Last April, Judythe held the Thursday3Some Spotlight for the first book in the Fitzgerald Family series: When Love Blooms. Click here to see that spotlight.)

About Judythe Morgan

Award-winning author Judythe Morgan writes sweet contemporary romance because she believes in true love, second chances, forgiveness, and, most of all, happily-ever-after.

Her Fitzpatrick Family series about 8 preacher kids each with their own love stories grew from Judythe’s many years of service in church ministry. She also happens to be the wife of a preacher’s kid and the mother of a preacher.

If she’s not at her computer working on the next story, you’ll find her browsing antiques shops, reading on the front porch or hiking with her real life hero (the preacher’s kid) and their two canine babies in the nearby Rio Grande National Forest.

About When Love Returns by Judythe Morgan

Becca Fitzpatrick fell in love with Ethan Wells at age five. At age eight, he proposed. At seventeen, he vanished and broke her heart. Twelve years later, he’s back with a new name and a life in Paris. Will she risk her heart and accept his new proposal again?

1. When did you write When Love Returns?

I began writing When Love Returns last fall shortly before I broke my right wrist. Surgery and rehab brought all my writing efforts to a halt for six months. I finally finished the manuscript in early spring and sent it off to my editor. The book finally released last month.

2. What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

The series idea for the Fitzpatrick Family came as I worked on When Love Blooms. All Andy’s brothers and sisters began talking in my head. Becca and her twin, Sarah, talked the loudest! Eventually, each Fitzpatrick sibling will have his or her own novella length story.

Becca Fitzpatrick lives in the small, fictitious Texas town where her father has pastored a local church for thirty years. I chose Paris as Ethan Wells LaMotte’s home because my husband worked for a Paris-based company before his retirement and I enjoyed many lovely trips to the city. It’s such a romantic place.

3. Why do readers buy When Love Returns?

When Love Returns is a clean and wholesome love story suitable for tweens to octogenarians. It’s a fun escape.

Here’s what Amazon reviewers say about Book 1 in the Fitzpatrick series:

“It's refreshing to read a love story that's portrayed without the sex we've come to expect in a romance.”

“...a beautiful, sweet story that will make you sigh.”

Thursday3Some: Captive of Friendly Cove by Rebecca Goldfield

Graphic novels debuted in 1964. Made of comics content--graphics and text--they were a hit with comics communities, but they didn't hit big until the publication of A Contract with God in 1978. Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns in 1986 made the general public aware of them.

Today,I have as my guests Rebecca Goldfield, author of Captive of Friendly Cove, a newly released graphic novel, and Mike Short, the artist for Captive of Friendly Cove.

About Author and Artist

Rebecca Goldfield is an award-winning writer/producer of both documentary films and graphic novels, with a focus on history and science. Her work has aired on NPR, PBS, the Discovery Channel, and National Geographic TV, among others. She was a contributor to the Harvey-nominated graphic novel District Comics, and is presently working on a television series about institutional corruption. Goldfield splits her time between Washington, DC; rural Pennsylvania; and New York City.

Mike Short lives in Lorton, Virginia, where he watches DVDs with his wife, plays with his kids, chases his runaway dog, or burns the midnight oil drawing comics. He was a contributor to the Eisner-nominated graphic anthology Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection.

About Captive of Friendly Cove

From the creators of the award-winning Trickster and District Comics comes another graphic novel about adventure and tribal life. After his ship is burned and his shipmates killed, British sailor John Jewitt lived for nearly three years as a captive of the Mowachaht people, a Native American tribe on the west coast of Vancouver Island. During his captivity, Jewitt kept journals of his experiences and of tribal life. Follow his adventures as he plies his skills as a blacksmith, saves the life of his only remaining crew member, and comes up with a strategy to free them both.

1. What inspired you to tell John Jewitt’s story in a graphic novel?

In reading both the journal and the narrative, there was tremendous time spent describing John’s world; what a house looked like; and how the people fished, made a canoe, or built a house. I thought we could convey much of that descriptive material through the art, which freed me up to focus on the action, drama, characters, and actual story as I envisioned it.

I was also interested in trying to write a young adult graphic novel, and had been keeping an eye out for a sympathetic young protagonist who faced tremendous odds and had to overcome them in order to survive. John Jewitt was the perfect candidate for just such a story.

2. Why were you so keen on telling this story for young adults?

There seems to have been a surge of stories for young adults of late, which is exciting for me because I think it’s an amazing and rich period for learning and growth. Many great writers have spoken about not writing down for kids of any age. J.R.R. Tolkien said that there is no such thing as writing for children. E.B. White and Maurice Sendak both echoed the need to write up for children and to not shield them from the complicated aspects of life — specifically, the difficult and trying aspects we will all encounter. Neil Gaiman, another magnificent storyteller, once said, “I think if you are protected from dark things then you have no protection of,knowledge of, or understanding of dark things when they show up. I think it is really important to show dark things to kids — and, in the showing, to also show that dark things can be beaten, that you have power.” (Toon Books interview)

When I discovered the story of John Jewitt, I saw a compelling adventure story but also a way to tackle the issues of home, identity, and ethnicity. Although John’s story takes place centuries ago, these issues remain relevant to young adults. Children should be encouraged to read difficult stories — not merely to foster future literacy but also to teach them how to overcome the difficulties in their own lives.

3. What are the benefits of telling stories through pictures?

I think graphic novels and nonfiction comics can reach reluctant readers in a way no other can, by captivating the visual imagination. They can be an amazing tool for learning and engagement that cannot be found in any other medium. When we connect ideas and lessons to a visual picture, we reach the brain on two separate levels. In our increasingly visual culture, I think the graphic novel will be a great way to connect to students efficiently and effectively.

The Serious Writer by G. E. Taylor, Author of Desperate Decision

Please welcome G. E. Taylor, author of Desperate Decision, to SlingWords. G.E. makes her home in New Jersey. She's my Guest Blogger today so let's get to know her better.

About G.E. Taylor: In Her Own Words

I became hooked on reading romance novels during my teen years, and my attempt at writing began in high school. All of my manuscripts were "mailed" under my bed. Eventually, I threw out most of them. That was painful especially since I’d hand written them first, then typed them on my old typewriter.

In college I majored in English but ended up with a Master in Social Work and a Master in Education. Though I had different career paths, I never gave up my passion for writing. Now I’m writing full time. I’ve drawn on my years of practicing social work to give my work authenticity and realism.

The Serious Writer: Turning Passion into Craft
by G. E. Taylor

"If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot."
― Stephen King

I couldn’t agree more with this quote by Stephen King. I like to read, and have always enjoyed reading. Even when I was growing up I read everything in the “Hardy Boys” series, “Nancy Drew” and any Mills and Boon romance book I could find. Naturally, I’ve read other books, but those mentioned, I’d enjoyed and had read sometimes twice.

In my moments of reflection though, I do regret not pursuing my writing as ardently back then as I’m doing now. Yes, I did some writing but nothing worthy to meet publishing standards, and I think I was pretty scared too. Still, that feeling was not strong enough to deter me from continuing to write and strive for the goal of completing and publishing that work.

I attacked my first novel like I was writing and preparing for one of my most critical professors. The rewrites were many and at times downright discouraging but since I was upholding a standard there was no way I could back down. So, casting aside any feeling of discouragement I continued to work and focus on the goal of producing a novel I was satisfied with and readers could enjoy. With my second novel I used almost the same demanding work discipline to achieve my goal. But somehow I found I was more relaxed, maybe because I’d faced the fire before and was now aware of the pitfalls and avoided them.

Someone said, you should toot your horn or no one will do it for you. So, I’m pleased with myself and happy to announce that I am the proud owner of two published contemporary romance books and I am working on the third one. My first book ─The Lady Mentor was published September, 2014 and Desperate Decision on July, 2015.

“The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible.” Vladimir Nabokov.

I am excited that once again I get to use my imagination to bring the invisible to life. Surrender My Heart is my next project and it is also a contemporary romance. This is the genre I’m most comfortable writing. Once this novel is complete, then my goal is to continue creating and writing stories, that hopefully readers will want to read.

For now, I’m pleased that I was able to meet the challenge of writing three novels as I am a member of Romance Writers of America and want to be seen as a serious writer.

Desperate Decision by G.E. Taylor

Allison North’s flight to freedom is dangerous and desperate. As she scrambles into the stranger’s car crying “drive,” she prays to God this is not her last day on earth. Usually not a gambler, this move is high-stake gambling. Bruised, battered, and with no money, she needs a place to hide and heal until she finds work as a pastry chef. When the stranger offers her shelter, she takes it even as fear rushes up her throat and threatens to choke her. Would she live to regret her decision?

Mason Franklin cannot believe his eyes but, with her urgent cry ringing in his ears, he presses the gas and the car leaps forward. What had possessed her to do such a dangerous act? He intends to find out. But no amount of probing loosened her tongue. Just when he decides to let her go, he accidentally sees her bruised body. Angry that someone did that to her made him want to meet the coward. He offers her shelter. Under his roof, he discovers she is the pastry chef who could not only lift his business to the top, but who built up a need in him that only she can satisfy. The wild passion they share can only lead to one conclusion.

Desperate Decision is available at Amazon Kindle * Nook * Kobo.

FALL In Love

Ah, September. The first day of fall. Cooler temperatures. Leaves changing colors. Soup bubbling on the stove. Romance novel waiting in your ebook reader.

Is there anything more relaxing than snuggling under a fuzzy blanket and reading? I think not.

Starting this week, I'm putting one of my romance novels on sale. This week it's The Trouble With Love. Book 2 of Texas One-Night Stands. The price is reduced from $3.99 to only 99cents. (I've reduced the price at all vendors so if it's not 99cents when you click on the link, check back in a couple of hours.)

This book is on my mind because I'm writing Book 3 of that series: Forever Starts Tonight.

The Trouble With Love, Book 2 of Texas One-Night Stands

There's one rule for a one night stand: NEVER see your part-time lover again. EVER. So what's a girl to do if the tall, dark, and too-darn-yummy guy shows up at her office?

In this Romantic Comedy, by-the-book Deputy Susannah Quinn has all she can do to resist rule-breaking Special Agent D. E. Hogan. Hang on to your Stetson as the fun and games begin in this contemporary romance that's sexy and funny and hotter than a bowl of Texas chili!

Can Susannah and Hogan, two mismatched lovers doing everything in their power to avoid falling in love, catch a thief and recover stolen jewels? The clock is ticking. They have only seven days--and nights--to complete their assignment and resist the sweet siren call of desire.

Now Writing Forever Starts Tonight, Book 3 of Texas One-Night Stands

In The Trouble With Love, Hogan's step-cousin, Allison Platt arrives and threatens to throw a monkey wrench into Hogan's plans. Allison was once married, as she says, "It's a typical story of being young and stupid. I was young. He was stupid."

By the end of The Trouble With Love, Susannah has learned that Allison isn't the globe-trotting airhead she first thought.

Fast forward a couple of years, and Allison, always looking for a new challenge, has become involved in bringing clean water to remote villages. What starts out as a routine trip to a Mexican village to drill a water well turns into a nightmare when Allison is abducted.

Movie Review: Time Lapse

Ooh! Have I got a doozy of a movie for you! Time Lapse, which I saw on Netflix, is the kind of film that word of mouth might push into cult status. If you don't have Netflix, Amazon has it also.

The Film's Origins

Premiering in 2014, the sci-fi thriller was the feature film directorial debut of Bradley King. The story, also written by King, draws from an old Twilight Zone episode, "A Most Unusual Camera." That episode aired on December 16, 1960, and was about a husband and wife theft team who stole a camera, which they discovered produced photographs 5 minutes into the future.

In Time Lapse, the relationship dynamics of the 3 main characters and the use of only 1 location are drawn from Shallow Grave, a 1994 film by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting).

Compelling Time Travel Flick

Hubby and I started watching it and ended up glued to the end. Not because the characters were so charismatic and likable--they weren't. Like so many movies peopled with young drug-using characters who seem disenfranchised--probably due to their own unwise decisions--this film was like a slow-motion car crash. Yet, like a terrible car crash, one finds it impossible to not look.

Time Lapse is about a machine that is capable of taking pictures 24 hours into the future. When 3 slacker friends--Finn (Matt O'Leary), Jasper (George Finn), and Callie (Danielle Panabaker)--discover the machine in their neighbor's apartment and learn what it can do, they concoct a scheme to use it for personal gain.

Like everything that is too good to be true, they revel in their new-found wealth and ignore the escalating weirdness in the photographs the machine spits out even though each glimpse of the near future is more disturbing than the previous day.

Up The Ante

Throw in a seriously scary thug and his enforcer, greed, the roommates' slide into paranoia, and escalating violence, and your sense of foreboding grows until you're on the edge of the seat just waiting for the explosive ending. When it comes, it's a surprise.

No, Time Lapse isn't a flawless film, and you may not particularly like the characters, except perhaps Finn who seems to have a conscience, but it is an original thriller that will keep you guessing.

Takeaway Truth

This little sleeper of a film is definitely worth a look--especially if you appreciate the fine art of irony.
