Writing Prompt Wednesday #65

Hello there,

Did you miss my writing prompt last week? I didn’t get one out as I have been sick lately with some sort of crud and then strep, but am all better now. I am on to bigger and definitely better things!

For You: a Short Romance Story

Hello Readers,

I wanted to let you know that I’ve added a short story to my blog for subscribers. (at the top right of this screen, in pink). It’s a very short story, only about 3 pages long and involves toilet paper, of all things! (Don’t worry, the story is clean!)

Here’s the cover:

unfolding rose for short story Romance Unfurled

It’s called Romance Unfurled and you only get it by signing up for my new newsletter, which comes out when I have updates, appearances, etc.

Do you like the cover? Let me know what you think!

Happy Friday!

Hello Readers,

I wanted to let you know that the e-book version of Cookie Encounter is on sale now for .99! It’s a tender story about forgiveness and finding love. I would love to know what you think!

Have a good one!



Who Knew? MSWord for Kindle!

Ok, you all know how untechy I am. But I recently watched a youtube video on how to use MSWord to put a manuscript on the Kindle. I had no idea this was available! I had always heard it had to be in a .mobi file to work on Kindle. But apparently they have changed that ‘rule’ and I, yes, me, was able to get my book on Kindle within a couple of hours. I was stoked! But because it was after midnight when I finished, I didn’t get to shout and whoop it up. My family were all snug in their beds.

Writing Prompt Wednesdays

I thought I would try something new this week. On Wednesdays, I’ll either post a set of random words or a short sentence to get your writing juices flowing.

Today, I picked three words for you:

  1. picnic
  2. spotted (the verb, not the adjective)
  3. socks

I know, totally random, huh? See what you come up with and post your sentence or paragraph in the comments. Have fun! I’ll post mine later.
