Review of Plan B

Reviewed by Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite

Plan B by Preston Randall is a short story about inmates planning an escape and what happens along the way. Their plan involves a diversion using some of their cellmates as a distraction. Things seem to be going well until something gets in their way. It’s time for Plan B. As we see the story unfold through the eyes of not only the inmates but also a homeless man who witnesses what can only be described as bizarre, we begin to see that things aren’t as they seem. This little story has it all: suspense, intrigue, mystery, and humor. It is brilliantly written with an unexpected twist that will have your jaw dropping and your smile widening.

I absolutely loved Preston Randall’s Plan B. I loved it so much that I am going to read it over and over again just to see how Randall pulled off such amazing storytelling. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I read it. When I got to the last couple pages and began figuring things out, I was practically falling out of my seat from the unexpected surprise. What this author did in 13 pages was pure genius. I was so completely entertained that I had to run to the other room and tell my husband what I just read. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a combination of suspense and humor. Even if you usually don’t, check this one out. Trust me. You won’t regret it. If you need me, I’ll be busy reading the rest of Preston Randall’s books.

New Year's Letter

Posted on January 31, 2015 at 16:00 2 Comments

I recently received an annual New Year's letter from a good friend, and it got me thinking about what people would write if they didn't have such a good year, especially since our friends seem so positive about everything. Perhaps it would go something like this:

Dear Family & Friends:

Well, we can hardly believe 2014 is behind us - what a fabulous, busy year. First, you should know that Cindy got out of the hospital much earlier than anticipated. The doctor said he'd never seen such a bad case of tetanus and wasn't it lucky she was trying to lose a few pounds before our son's wedding in Cozumel. After all, there's only so many calories you can stuff in through a straw, what with the "lockjaw" and everything. But it just gets better. After extracting that 3" old rusty nail from Cindy's foot (I warned her about gardening barefoot, but you know Cindy!), the doctor said we could keep the nail as a reminder. So straight away we tacked it up on our "Wish Board" in the…

A Difficult Christmas for Many

Posted on December 22, 2014 at 20:25 0 Comments

For those with a parent or significant other with Alzheimer's, the holiday season can be an especially difficult time. With family traditions come all the reminders of loss, and as much as one wants to include the person afflicted it can't be done once they reach a certain stage in the disease's progression. If you're in the midst of coping with this, either as a caregiver, spouse, son, daughter, or other relation, I'd like to offer my deepest thanks for the help you give and my sympathies for the suffering you must endure. And I'd like to remind everyone to think about someone you love and imagine not being able to share your love with them despite their being physically present. If you are currently in that situation, I'd like to offer a virtual hug and wish you all the best for future peace throughout the season and beyond.

My day off: 

Lynda leaves to go shopping. Turn on dining room light, ceiling fan goes on high. Fiddle with remote, fan refuses to turn off. Change battery. Switch breaker off and on. Look for manual—gone. Turn off breaker, climb on top of dining room table, remove cover on fan, change pin combo, climb down, turn on breaker, fan refuses to turn off. Eat lunch. Go to Home Depot, buy new light switch, install, fan still on. Google everything. Go to Rona Home & Garden, buy new remote, install, fan still on. Turn off breaker, climb back up on table, pull everything out again, consider installing new…

Accepting Mediocrity

Have you ever started writing a story and then made the mistake of reading something absolutely brilliant? This recently happened to me.

I more or less finished an outline of a shortish story which I was pretty happy with - even excited about, which is rare for me. There are lots of weird characters and crazy scenes, a good plot twist and an ending which should be quite satisfying. Once I started sketching things out, more and more characters and ideas popped into my head and sometimes I'd wake up with a jolt in the middle of the night and write on a scratch-pad on my night table; I tend to dream about things that relate to the story currently in my head and it's fun to insert them somewhere if a suitable spot is found.…

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…
