Anyone who has stopped by one of our booths at the various conventions and events we go to in the past few years knows I write fiction in addition to soaping, blogging, and vlogging. I have a novel and a collection of short works out now, and I'm well into the process of producing another novel. But, what you might not know is I've also been working on a series of flash fictions for a year now.
Each week since early February 2016, I've written a flash fiction story of 500 words of less based on first line prompts I either pulled from online sources or gotten from reader suggestions. At the end of March, I began making audio versions of the flash fictions and posting them each Friday over on Eng Family Vlogs. Then over time, the flash fictions began to intertwine and connect until I began to realize I'd created several new fictional "universes" in addition to adding to the three "universes" I've been writing in for years.
It’s that time of year again, folks. Thanksgiving is next week, and that means I’m gearing up for the annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Christmas sales!
The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale runs from 6 a.m. Friday, November 25 through 5 p.m. Monday, November 28. During this sale, all bath and body and knit or crochet products will be marked down 50-75%. All books, including ebooks and signed paperbacks, will be marked down 20%.
Have you checked out our books section? If you're a fan of character driven science fiction and fantasy, you'll love the books written by staff writer, A. B. England.
England not only designs and makes soaps and perfumes and works the Contented Comfort booths at all the events we attend, but she writes many of the titles available in our store. Since returning to publishing in June 2014, she's been hard at work trying to create and prepare new titles for our customers every twelve to eighteen months. She's also been running a flash fiction series on her blog, where she offers quick read stories between 100 and 500 words in length every Friday.
