Stories on the Go: 101 Very Short Stories by 101 Authors

by Hugh Howey

This anthology aims to be a showcase of recent indie writing.

Hugh Howey launched the idea on Kboards, a forum for Kindle readers, but also the meeting place of an active community of indie writers.

The result is this anthology of 101 very short stories by 101 authors.

To make it more attractive for you, the reader, we set ourselves a limit of a thousand words. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes â?? on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet at home or in the office, but also on your smartphone, on the go, while you are commuting or waiting at a coffee shop for your significant other to arrive.

We included as many genres as we could. We hope that maybe, with only five minutes of your time on the line that would otherwise be wasted anyway, you’ll be tempted to venture outside your comfort zone and try out some new genres and new authors.

Claiming Victory: A Romantic Comedy (The Dartmouth Diaries Book 1)

by Beverley Watts

Claiming Victory is a funny contemporary romantic comedy that will appeal to every woman who still believes fairy tales can come trueâ?¦

…”So let me get this straight Admiral. Your plan is to somehow get the most famous actor in the world, to fall in love with your daughter Victory, who we both love dearly, but – and please don’t take offence Sir – who you yourself admit is built generously across the aft, and whose face is unlikely to launch the Dartmouth ferry, let alone a thousand shipsâ?¦”

Victory Shackleford is a spinster, or at least well on the way to becoming one. She is thirty two years old, still lives with her father – an eccentric retired Admiral, and the love of her life is a dog.

She thinks her father is reckless, irresponsible, and totally incapable of looking after himself. He thinks his daughter is a boring nagging harpy with no imagination or sense of adventure and what’s more, he’s determined to get her married off.

Unfortunately there’s no one in the picturesque yachting town of Dartmouth that Tory is remotely interested in, despite her father’s best efforts.

But all that is about to change when she discovers that her madcap father has rented out their house as a location shoot for the biggest blockbuster of the year. As cast and crew descend, Tory’s humdrum orderly existence is turned completely upside down, especially as the lead actor has just been voted the sexiest man on the planetâ?¦

Full of romantic humour, Claiming Victory is a must for fans of funny love stories – especially quirky British Romantic comedies.

Shopaholic on Honeymoon (Short Story)

by Sophie Kinsella

This free eBook short story fills in the gaps of Sophie Kinsella’s bestselling Shopaholic series, following Becky Brandon and her husband, Luke, as they start their luxurious yearlong honeymoon around the world. But these jet-setters are about to hit some turbulence.   Becky and Luke are in Venice-the city of winding canals, gorgeous historic buildings, and, of course, exceptional shopping. To unwind from the stress of their wedding, Becky has planned an utterly blissful honeymoon where, for an entire year, they will hop from one country to the next-Italy to the Czech Republic to Sri Lanka and beyond-as they please. But lately, Luke has been more restless than relaxed. In fact, he seems (unbelievably!) like he wants to go home. Will Becky be able to save their dream vacation, or will their globe-trotting come to a sudden halt?   Praise for the Shopaholic novels   “[Sophie] Kinsella has a genuine gift for comic writing.”-The Boston Globe   “Hilarious . . . hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes . . . too good to pass up.”-USA Today   “Kinsella’s Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You won’t have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist.”-People

Former Army Ranger Jude Winthrop and thousands of patriotic Americans quickly form a nation-wide resistance against the military dictatorship.

Where is my Grandma?

by Niyati Desai-Kadakia

“Where is my Grandma?” is a story about Neha, a 5 year-old second generation Indian-American girl, who is trying to understand why her Grandmother lives so far away. In her attempt to understand the distance that separates her from her extended family, she explores her own complex identity: She expresses her love for America at the same time that she tells the reader how much she yearns to see her Grandmother, to take her to the park, to bake cookies with her. Neha’s parents are amused by her creative plans to reunite with her Grandmother, and they try to satisfy her questions about why she is so far from the family that she so misses.

“Rachel and Sunny are my best friends. Today, they have come to the park with their grandmas.

Why can’t my grandma come to the park with me?

Why can’t she push my swing and build castles with me?”

Neha’s character is a part of many American households. It is the story of a perceptive and sensitive young child caught between two cultures, and of parents trying to help her craft an identity that is whole and complete. This book touches on issues not typically addressed in picture books, and fills an important void in children’s literature for this group of children who are particularly vulnerable to feeling marginalized and different.

Christmas With M.E. or Fibro….

by Emma Hope

Emma Hope has written this anthology of poetry for Christmas. ‘Christmas With M.E. or Fibro’ features 40 poems about M.E., and also these may well apply to fibromyalgia sufferers. Emma is an M.E./C.F.S. and fibromyalgia sufferer herself, and wrote this Christmas anthology as M.E. is still an illness which does not get enough attention, whether at Christmas or at other times of the year. Emma has included many poems from an M.E. sufferer’s perspective and it also includes fibromyalgia, which is also a much misunderstood illness. (M.E. stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis, and fibromyalgia is often known as ‘fibro’.)

The poems are not supposed to be a guide to M.E., and if you feel that you have M.E. or know someone who has, of course, please consult a doctor. This poetry is merely a vehicle for expressing emotions about the subject of M.E. and fibromyalgia. Some poems deal with ‘Christmas with M.E.’ in a more light hearted way looking at M.E. from a sufferer’s perspective in an anecdotal way, whereas others try to convey the true suffering that people with such a serious illness as M.E. experience at Christmas. In particular, the lack of understanding about M.E. and fibro is explored, the sufferer’s view being at the fore to put the themes of M.E. and fibromyalgia at the centre of this poetry.

M.E. is a serious debilitating illness, as is fibromyalgia, and these often chronic illnesses, deserve to be dealt with in a more high profile way, so that sufferers

are provided with best possible circumstances in which to recover, although for some, a much hoped for recovery is still out of sight…

All proceeds of the sale of this book will go to the Tymes Trust, which is a charity that supports children with M.E…!

The Moon Dancers

by Amy Marcello

A full moon on a warm Summer evening entices the neighborhood kids to come outside to play. Together they all meet, barefoot in the grass and carefree. They dance together, with the excitement from their own shadows. The moon is the audience that looks down and smiles at this grassy stage of young dancers, as if it were a choreographed performance. It doesn’t matter who the characters are, or what they look like. They are all laughing and playing together that makes for a beautiful show. When it’s almost time for bed, these dancers look up at the smiling moon and agree, that they will all come out to dance again, next time the audience is full and bright.

It is a reminder how to share appreciation for the simple and natural beauty in life amongst people without judgment of one another

by A.D. Folmer

Unsure if your building is haunted by spirits or termites? Want to know the secret ingredient behind grandma’s famous apple pie? Then call Jaspar Windisle and let him use his 300 years of experience channeling the dead to tell you whether the answer is bourbon, termites, or “fly, you fools.” While he usually shouts out that last answer while already running, everything changes when a very, very old friend calls in a favor and asks him to come work for Jesticorps on a mall project in Towenridge, cryptid capital of the Northwest.

Jesticorps, the only company crazy enough to want to bring the convenience and reasonable prices of a mall to a town where the works of H.P. Lovecraft are taught in history class, the town council policy on evil cults involves a shotgun and a shovel, and most of the residents appear to be either part of an evil clone army or are one busy practical joker with a lot of wigs.

Will Jaspar find the key to unlock the interdimensional portal under the mall? Can he put down the occult goldfish uprising? Do any of the “outside law enforcement agents” turning up in town actually work for the government? Answers to all of these questions and more in Beneath the Mall of Madness!

Blue Light Series (Two Complete Novels) Books 1 and 2

by Mark Edward Hall

The Blue Light Series contains the entire text of Apocalypse Island and Soul Thief, the first two books in the series.

Although the books in the Blue Light Series are all different and are, in and of themselves, stand-alone novels, there are several common threads and characters that run through the entire series tying it together as one all encompassing body of work.

I am no more certain than you, dear reader, where this journey will lead, but I promise that together we will follow the blue light to its end.

Book descriptions:

Apocalypse Island:

Danny Wolf, a gifted musician with alcohol problems is witnessing brutal murder in his dreams. Someone is carving a cross on each of the young female victims before crucifying them.

Newly released from prison for a crime he did not commit, Wolf is having trouble adjusting to civilian life. He believes the dreams are a symptom of his adjustment until he discovers that they are real and that the victims are his own groupies. He soon begins to doubt his sanity. Could he be a homicidal madman?

Wolf has no memory of his early childhood but discovers that he spent his first eight years in a Catholic orphanage on a mysterious island off the coast of Maine. Is it possible that his early life and the murders are somehow connected?

Soon the killings become more bold and gruesome, as members of the church begin to die.

Enter Police Lieutenant Rick Jennings and his young assistant Laura Higgins. They discover a government conspiracy involving the Catholic Church, and a cold war CIA mind control program known as MK-Ultra where children were used as test subjects.

Danny Wolf becomes the number one suspect in the murders, but no one, not even Wolf, is prepared for what they discover on Apocalypse Island, a mind blowing secret that was supposed to stay hidden forever.

Apocalypse Island is a fast-paced thriller that will keep you guessing until the shocking conclusion.

Soul Thief:

The Brotherhood of the Order is one of the oldest and most mysterious organizations on earth. Its primary mission is to protect one of the most carefully guarded secrets in human history, an object so enigmatic and powerful that in the wrong hands it could wreak havoc upon the earth. In the right hands it just might have the power to save humanity from its own destructive impulses.

Doug McArthur, hit in the face by a young friend at the age of seven, is suddenly able to see a supernatural creature who calls itself Collector. Doug’s life is turned upside down when he realizes that it’s not just the creature he sees, but the atrocities it commits.

Since marrying Annie his visions have been quiet and Doug is grateful. Now Annie is pregnant with their first childâ??a child that promises to be specialâ??and their world is in the process of coming apart, beginning with the destruction of their home and forcing them to run for their lives, back into the world of Annie’s childhood, the De Roché dynasty, to a murdered mother and a cruel and enigmatic father.

Doug, whose love for Annie borders on the obsessive, has a deep and abiding hate for her father. He is nearly insane with grief over their plight, but soon finds that De Roché is the least of his worries when he begins to hear the pleading voice of a lost child that he cannot possibly save.

And then, in the midst of Annie’s mother’s funeral, Doug is given a strange artifact, along with a dire warning by a dying priest. He must leave Annie and his unborn child and begin a sojourn into the darkest regions of the human heart.

In his attempt to save his wife and unborn child, Doug finds that there is much more at stake than the lives of two people, perhaps the very salvation of the human soul.

Soul Thief is the second novel in the Blue Light Series, a supernatural thriller that will keep you guessing until the stunning conclusion.

Exodus (Foundation Trilogy Book 1)

by Lawrence Cramer

Following the discovery of “wet tunnels” linking the majority of the world’s oil wells together, combined with the now vividly apparent oil shortage, panic among the global populous ensues. Violent riots become commonplace as the critical infrastructure, previously dependent on the black gold, grinds suddenly to a halt. The citizens of the United States cry out for government intervention and a national savior. The response: Martial Law. Realizing they are losing control, the U.S. government calls its troops home and isolationism becomes the new norm.

Out of the torrent of chaos and oppression an underground movement forms: the Pilgrims. Founded with the sole purpose of recapturing their once held rights to freedom, the plan from which to obtain their dream is nearly complete. Operating from the shadows, the pilgrims must tread carefully if they are to succeed.

The story itself follows a young man named Devin, who falls unwillingly into the Pilgrim movement and finds himself an enemy of the state. With his survival at stake, the teen, joined by a group of refugees, struggles to escape the government controlled city and on to the Pilgrim capital of freedom: Lake Haven.
