This page shall henceforth be my page of short stories. Most of these will be stories I wrote for contests that unfortunately did not win. Nonetheless, I feel they are worth sharing.
But, let's start with a winner. This first story won a writing contest in Australia's Writing Quarter.
Most of the stories here are free and exclusive to this site. Some of the longer stories I have on Amazon.
This next section is for stories that I have turned into nice little .epub files to easily download, carry, and share or that I sell for $0.99 on Amazon. Click on the picture or title to begin reading.
The stories below are from one of my favorite monthly competitions: Furious Fiction
In their own words:
'On the first weekend of every month, you are invited to put your storytelling skills to the test in the ultimate writer-takes-all short story competition. Armed only with our simple brief, your job is to race the clock to come up with your best 500 words-or-fewer story and be in to win a tasty $500 – every single month.'
I personally love the stopwatch and criteria they put for each contest. I have yet to win this competition, but I have enjoyed the few I have participated in. Below are the ones I have entered to date.
Lastly, here is some flash fiction that I have written for the monthly writing contest: Furious Fiction.
Always great for a quick read. I like to write these thinking they find the balance, or perhaps compromise, between poetry and prose.
