As mentioned before, Derek Murphy is running a monthly short story competition on CreativIndie. This month the theme was romance, or star-crossed lovers to be precise. Given my predilection for science-fiction this was quite a challenge; if you would like to read the result it’s here: Mimosa [UPDATE 20 October 2014 – link removed as I have submitted this to a magazine]. Depending on how the competition goes this might appear as part of a collection on Kindle in the next few months, if not I will consider putting it out in a more ereader friendly format. Until then, enjoy!
The cover to the left was something I produce in PowerPoint and it is based on one of Derek’s templates. If you want to know more look at his DIY Book Cover site or get in touch.
Feel free to leave comments here or on the story page itself. Until then I’ll leave you to settle down to a tale of romance on the Greek Island of Melanos. [It’s absolutely pouring here in England at the moment – a long way away from the delights of Mimosa!]
