Father’s Day

Open to Everybody.

Father’s Day is in June and here at Magic of Stories, we would like your ‘Dad Stories’.

For the whole of the month, we shall publish different stories about different dads.

We all have many memories about our father’s and I would like just one or two contained in up to 500-700 words. It can be anything, funny or sad things, wishful things, or just something about your dad you would really like to share.

You can include up to three photographs and also a link back to yourself, if you wish, such as a web or Facebook page.

If you are interested, send your story in an email and I’ll let you know the day yours will be featured and give you a link when it is written.

Campbells World

Good morning campbellsworld visitors and Bookworms everywhere.
This morning I’d like to share with you a review and excerpt from Karen J. Mossman’s book The Secret.
Before I leave you to read this well written review and all the other book info I’d like to take a moment to congratulate the reviewer on a review well done.
Why do I feel this needs saying?
First, the reviewer gives us a great idea of what this book is going to be like. She talks of how it is gripping and keeps the reader turning page after page.
She Talks about the characters, and that they’re well developed and what types of reactions she hadwhen reading of them.
But.
She does much more than that.
She lets us know that we’re going to find writing work that is accurate, with none of the mistakes that are found much too often in self-published…

Hazard, a Nineties Song

Do you remember Richard Marx’s Hazard ? I loved it and the video was dark and moody and told a story. The music is haunting and shot in black and white makes it very atmospheric.

Who did kill Miss Mary? We never got to find out and so, inspired by the video, I wrote a story.

Mary became Mary-Jo and it is told through the eyes of her best friend, Shelby. She, like her father, she had visions and when she ‘saw’ her friend was in trouble, she had to return to the town she’d left behind.

The first person she turns to is Mary-Jo’s boyfriend, Ricky, named after Richard Marx, of course. But he doesn’t know what happened to Mary-Jo and why she is missing. They had had a row, so he is not looking for her. He is broody and angry and it takes a while for Shelby to discover why.

Then there is the sheriff, Rawden Hughes, who Shelby has a history with. She is not so delighted to see him again, but knew it was inevitable.

Then there is her Pa, strangely sober for once, what is he hiding? Why does he accuse her like he does?

Long buried secrets surface and a recent review called it a thriller of a tale. I’d call it a crime, and a mystery, with a little paranormal thrown in.  I would love to hear what you think.

Down by the River is novelette and available on Amazon UK and Amazon US for just £1/$1.
