A MEMORIAL DAY FLASH FICTION

Leave a comment

The following is a Five Sentence Fiction I wrote back in November 2013 for Veterans Day in response to the prompt of “LETTERS” given to followers of a now defunct website “Five Sentence Fiction”

SADNESS IS CONTAGIOUS

LEslie sat in the den of her home crying.

The tears which came flowing over her cheeks weren’t ones of sadness, they were ones of the bittersweet remembrances she got as she read the LETTERS which her then future husband had sent her during his first assignment in the Middle East.

TEresa, Leslie’s daughter, sat by her mother’s side trying to console her, but to no avail.

Reluctantly Teresa started to read the LETTERS herself to see the reason for her mother’s dismay.

Sadness became infectious because these LETTERS allowed her to get to know the father she never knew, as she fell victim to the words in the LETTERS as well.

Your comments would be appreciated.

The above Flash Fiction is one of the 100 Flash Fictions contained in my book “Micro Fiction – An Anthology.” No link is being given as this is being given as an informational purpose.

I WOULD TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR KIND SUPPORT

TO ALL MY WONDERFUL FOLLOWERS

I really appreciate you being here. I don’t believe I’ve ever really come out to ask for your support something I’m doing.

If you’ve been following my blog then you’ll know I’ve finally decided to allow my steamier, erotic side come out of hiding and have a separate life and existence. My steamier side is about to release an anthology of Erotic Haiku, and is over 80% finished a debut erotic novella.

And as for myself, with the knowledge I’ve gain in writing the erotic novella, I’ve begun another round of editing my adult contemporary romance which currently has 239 pages, about 61,250 words and is 85% completed.

I need to begin to raise funds to help me pay for the completion of these endeavors, and I don’t want anyone to feel they should buy a copy of one of my two books to help me.  But I would love to have your generous support for my THUNDERCLAP campaign. I’m trying to reach a potential new audience regarding my debut romance novel, a sweet MG/YA Paranormal entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”

Here’s the link to my THUNDERCLAP

I want to THANK YOU for your kind support in advance and have a GREAT WEEK with whatever you’re doing !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

THE DECISION HAS BEEN MADE !!!

About ten days ago I had mentioned I had been considering using a new pen name for my erotic endeavors. Now with about 55% completed, up from 49%, in writing my first erotic novella completed and having gotten ideas for two more stories [one of which I’ve typed my first page] I now find the need to use one more than ever, in order to separate them from all of my other endeavors. I’m planning on posting ALL of my reviews for erotic books on this site instead of selected ones regardless of their genres. In addition to this I want to interview any fellow erotic authors regarding their writing, dwelling into the nitty-gritty of it.

These are the four names I’m considering in using and I would love to get your feedback on which of them I should use:

Beverly Ann Rogers

Kathryn Heart

Samantha E Xavier

Susie Q Winston

THANKS for your feedback my dear followers and have a GREAT WEEKEND with your families !!! 🙂  🙂  🙂

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ! ! !

HAS ANYONE TAKEN A LOOK AT MY SECOND BOOK

Leave a comment

Many of you who have followed by blog know that I’ve written a MG/YA Paranormal romance as my debut novel entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”

The thing is I’ve also self-published a second book entitled “Micro Fiction – An Anthology” which contains 100 Flash Fictions, the vast majority of which are only 5 sentences, with the longest having about 390 words. This book is quite different than the ones you usually read.

Well recently this book had received another 5 STAR review which I’d like for everyone to check out on Amazon.

I’M AVAILABLE

TO ALL OF MY DEAR FOLLOWERS

If you have a blog and would like to interview me for it I’m finally available. The reason I said finally available is simply because it has reached the point where I can take care of my OH’s needs on my own and will no longer need the home attendant to assist me. It has taken about 13 months to this to happen. It will now mean I can finally have access to my computer 7 days a week during the times I’m usually the most productive [about 6 AM-9AM] and [9 PM until I get tired and want to do to sleep. I will try to make myself available to do about 18 – 20 interviews a month.

If you’re interested, just leave your contact information here on my blog or send me a DM on Tweeter @MyPenNameOnly   I will create a listing on a first-come, first served basis.

If you’d like to know a little more as to who I am, please go to:

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY SUPPORT YOU CAN GIVE ME

Love

Robin Leigh Morgan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MEMORIAL DAY – 2016

Leave a comment

It’s Memorial Day again, the time when remember those brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. I felt the need to share two of my Flash Fictions for all those reading this to reflect on.

SADNESS CAN BE CONTAGIOUS

Leslie sat in the den of her home crying.

The tears which came flowing over her cheeks weren’t ones of sadness. They were ones of the bittersweet remembrances she got as she read the letters which her then future husband had sent her during his first assignment in the Middle East.

Theresa, Leslie’s daughter, sat by her mother’s side trying to console her, but to no avail.

Reluctantly, Leslie allowed her daughter to read the letters herself.

Sadness became infectious because these letters allowed Theresa to get to know the father she barely knew, as she now fell victim to the beautiful words in the letters as well.

 

THE ULTIMATE ACT OF VALOR

The color purple covers the entire spectrum of life itself, from the richest of people of royal blood who flaunt it in their clothes they wear, to the lowly peasant who’s mourning the death of a loved one.

The color purple doesn’t make the person; it’s their acts which makes them the person. A person of royal blood who thinks himself better than those around him won’t receive the respect of those below his station, while a poor individual who regularly gives of himself will be treated in a manner normally reserved for a king.

The lack of selfishness must be maintained at all costs; and placed above everything else.

When it comes to war, an extremely small percentage of soldiers will wind up losing body parts or even making the ultimate sacrifice and place their lives above everyone else’s, an act of pure valor which can only be symbolized by a Purple Heart.

Although small in size, the Purple Heart is worth more than a hundred times its weight in gold, merely because of what it represents.

 

NOTE: The above two items, with a few revisions, come from my second book, “Micro Fiction – An Anthology,” which is a collection of 100 Flash Fictions, most of which got written as I wrote my first book and at time needed something to help me get through a case of writer’s block I had been experiencing.

This is NOT a request for anyone to buy a copy of my book.
