Flashpoints of the Week

Seven Days of Rain by Chris F. Holm.
Before you submit your next flash fiction or short, take a look at what storytelling is all about.

What Is A Western Writer? by Jory Sherman.
Poetic and a half.

Killing Trail by Charles Allen Gramlich.
Fine writing. Exceptional e-book formatting. But the thing that kept grabbing me the most was how much I enjoyed reading a collection of new short story westerns.

The Junk Girl by Naomi Johnson.
Flavorful locale, desperate characters, and my kind of ending.

Writing Short by Elizabeth Zelvin.
"So can short story writing be taught to a writer who thinks she 'can’t write short'?"

Regina's War by Richard Prosch
The Peregrine returns and here's hoping Mr. Prosch doesn't stop with these very entertaining stories.

Thanks for the tips. I had not seen "7 Days of Rain" and it's a corker.

Chris said...

David, you are too kind.

David Cranmer said...

Ron, that's what I thought. Masterful job.

Chris, Well, that's some sharp writing amigo. And so is Simon Rip. Damn, gotta sit on that one for another two months!

Charles Gramlich said...

More riches to devour. Good thing that clicking on net links doesn't contain calories.

Richard Prosch said...

I'm with Chris, David. Thank you for the mention, amigo.

Naomi Johnson said...

You're a kind and generous man, David. Thank you.

David Cranmer said...

Charles, I know what you mean. I see that Crider has just reeased a western e-book so it's off again I go.

Rich, Naomi, Thank you for the terrific reads this week. Real top shelf stuff.
