Valentine Flash Fiction, what could be more fun? The challenge: capture a mood, a memory, a romantic encounter, using exactly 100 words. Stories like Unmasked and Never Stop Asking will touch your heart while others like Glory Days, Puppy Love and Swipe Right will make you smile. Enjoy stories by: James J. Cudney, Jeff Homberger, Julie Morrall, Didi Oviatt, Kaitlyn Sutey and Barbara Venkataraman. This short book will lift your spirits and brighten your day, any day of the year.
It amazes me how much emotion can be depicted within 100 words. Each story is unique and entertaining; filling the reader with hope, laughter, and even a touch of sadness, as is the case in Never Stop Asking by James J. Cudney where a couple in love never quite get to the married stage.
I laughed at Lessons in Cupid by Kaitlyn Sutey where Cupid retires and his successor learns creating love matches is not as easy as it seems.
Another favorite was Puppy Love by Barbara Venkataraman. She skillfully guides us through a sweet new love affair between an aristocrat and a guy who feels out of her league only to discover they’re dogs in the end.
If you need a little light-hearted reading, I highly recommend this flash fiction anthology. A nice way to escape the cold!
