Elliana found a curious antique bottle of amber glass with brass filigrees encasing it. It must have belonged to that hobo who bumped into me, she thought.  It was truly a beautiful bottle. Upon opening it a misty cloud of purple escaped and coalesced before her eyes. “Your wish is my command.” “You have got to be kidding!” “Is that your wish?” “No, hang on I am still processing this.” Elliana looked at the now solid man standing in her bedroom. Swiping her eyes, she shook her head. “So how…See More

Who is she...

I don't think I introduced myself...if I did  forgive the repeatMy name is Kari, I began writing as a novelist...but had some  issues with rude  troll behavior and  lost my drive to continue my novel ( my 7th in a series) So to hide out I switched to poetry. So I have been writing poems consistently for two years. I try all kinds and forms but mostly prefer making up my own stuff to just let it flow the way it wants. I hope to become a small time publisher some day. I am 50 years old and in…See More

The Bitter End

It’s a curious thing really. To be conscious and unable to move. I’ve no one but myself to speak to, as my mouth cannot even respond. But I have this curious need to narrate my demise. Being a storyteller I would dearly love to explain my situation.



I was on holiday. A small cruise line promised a more tailored and unique experience. I enjoyed visiting one island after the other, noting the similarities and differences were…

Hi - I was forced to choose one author only. I wanted to put Asimov-Clarke-Heinlein-Dick-etc...

Asimov was a great ideas man, driving scifi for decades, but his later writing depended upon his ideas rather than on writing style. Or did I just  become more "sophisticated"?

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
