The Fiction Cafe Book Club

The Fiction Cafe – Book Club In just a year a lot has happened. I may not have achieved the target blog followers I aimed for. I may not have been as active as I wanted to be on my blog. What I have achieved has been amazing! In Jan, I met a lovely lady by chance in a book group on Facebook. We went on to start our own after rude admins didn’t agree with a simple suggestion. In just 8 months we have a group with just under 4’000 members!… Read More

Flash Fiction – The Stranger

  The feeling of unease is intense as I walk along hiding in the shadows of trees. The noise is there just behind me beating amongst the rain as it pelts hard against my skin. Footsteps, gaining on me, getting louder and echoing in my mind causing panic as I imagine the terror the other girls have felt before me.

Procrastination – The Route of all Evil!!!

As you all know, I decided to jump in not just feet first but headfirst into the abyss of the swimming pool that is NaNoWriMo! I had the inspiration, the main character and a bloody good idea for an amazing psychological thriller. My head was telling me, no but my heart was yearning for a childhood dream to be lived. I needed to just get on and do what I have always wanted to do and write a novel. This is something that I’ve always wanted … not just an idea but… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

“My 6am Blissful Morning Walk!” The morning starts with Lillie whining to be let out her crate. I listen silently hoping my partner hears her and goes to her first. At the side of me, the snoring gets louder … Hmmm, he is playing me at my game! The cheek of it! So quietly I lay there in case he hears her. Still nothing but snoring from a dead weight laying next to me. I pretend to be roused by the puppy and that I’ve only just heard her in case she is… Read More
