Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Dark & Fluffy: Volume II
This is a collection of nine very short stories, ideal for when you’ve only a few minutes to escape into a story. They range in subject and genre, some are somewhat macabre, others funny, some historical, other contemporary. It is a thorough mix. My favourite was definitely The Disney Club which is definitely one of the happier stories, though I didn’t assume it would be when I started reading it! Many have a twist to surprise or shock you. There’s everything from annoying neighbours and stalkers to families and murderers – and the titles don’t always give a clue to their content.
This is a fun, quick and quirky collection of unrelated stories that I enjoyed reading. Many thanks to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for gifting me a copy of it. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Following on from Dark & Fluffy, this collection is a further nine short fiction pieces. The title Dark & Fluffy II, reflects the general styles of the stories/prose in the book. Some are a bit darker, and may be a bit uncomfortable to read, Death by Testing and The Broken Arrangement fall into this category. Others are happier, feel good pieces like The Disney Club. Whatever your preference, I’m sure you’ll find something that will grab your attention.
I am married with one teenage son and have always been a keen reader and writer since being young. I was born in Lancashire but have lived in Lincoln for over 30 years.
Several years ago I decided to take my writing seriously. I completed an OU course in creative writing and a Writers Bureau course. Initially I concentrated on short story writing, and when I turned fifty this year, I self-published my first book, Dark and Fluffy.
I love writing short stories, but my main goal is to have a novel published. Ten years ago, I started the first book of a trilogy of novels called The Little Servant (The Wait’s Son). I am still working on this, but now I have a serious intent to get this finished this year.
My favourite genre is medieval fiction, Bernard Cornwell is my favourite author. I also like to read Edward Rutherford, Stephen King, and Dean Coontz.
