Written Across the Genres

We are very close to ordering the galley proof for Written Across the Genres. Another step closer to publishing by February 1st.

One section toward the end of the book has several name tag mini shorts. The object was to write in one hundred words, a mini short with the sentence, “I have rain in my name tag.” The sentence could not be changed but could be anywhere in the piece. Of course, no two stories were the same, not even similar. I read about half of them last night at our open mic gathering. Most of the mini’s were humorous so we had many laughs.

You will be able to read them all when Written Across the Genres is available for purchase very soon.
