Fun with Mermaids

Looking back on my last few posts there seems to be a theme: projects I was involved in that were just a whole lot of stinking fun. And guess what — this one is too!

The Waterworld Mermaids (of which I am a part) have a big Garden Party bash planned for the month of October over at our site. Free original fiction by a bunch of us (including me–I’m up first!), the inspiration behind those stories, and even a trailer to whet your appetite!

See now, I bet you can’t wait until October first.
Luckily, you won’t have to wait very long!

66 Twisted Tales

You know those stories that you have so much fun writing and submitting that you completely forget about them until a friend mentions that they’re available for sale? Well, that’s what happened here.

Twisted Tales in 66 Words is a project that Kimberly Raiser came up with on Facebook a while back. She wanted to get 66 stories made up of 66 words apiece (not counting the title), and offered to pay us…was it 6.6 cents a word, or $6.60 for each story…heck, I don’t even remember.

What I do remember is that I had such a blast once I wrote one that I ended up writing a couple more. I told Ariell she should write some too. And then I sent a notice out to all my other idle writer friends on Facebook to challenge themselves if they had five minutes.

This isn’t some groundbreaking work by some major publisher…it’s only 48 pages and it’s on sale at Lulu for a little over six bucks. But how much fun can you imagine friends like mine had in 66 words? The only way to find out is to buy the book.

***************************

Award winning authors…. Stories to break your mind. Within these pages you will find the things that not only go bump in the night, but bring fear to the things that do the bumping. Discover your new favorite authors and let your mind wander and wonder how 66 simple words put together in the optimum use of fright can have such an impact on your slumber. Join us….

On the Nomness of Babies

If you don’t laugh at this video, you should probably just go ahead and unfriend me from Facebook right now.

To the rest of you, I say: You’re welcome.

Enter the Haggis

I’m cleaning the house (okay, I *was* cleaning the house — I am now officially taking a break to do some writing) because we’re having company this weekend. Tomorrow night, we’re all going to see the band Enter the Haggis.

Since it’s Friday, I’m going to share a song with you. I’ve never heard them play this one live, but it’s one of my favorites. You literary types will enjoy the reference. “Did you rise up for the curtain to fall for the plot?” Brilliant.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
