The End Of Time

Rated 4.75/5 based on 20 reviews
An excited town… a mesmerized crowd… they loved her as soon as they set eyes on her. Beautiful, breathtaking, that’s what everyone said of her. Day after day, she could feel their eyes on her, always smiling. She worked hard for them, rain or shine, and was always there for them… so why did they hang her? A 592 word short story.

About GlennAndSasha Gabriel

Update Notice: August 2, 2014.

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting our Authors Page.

Book three of our Amanda Ackers Adventure series novels was published today at last :)

Sasha and I apologize for the delay. We have both had some health issues this past year, so, my writing was put on hold for a good while.

Sasha and I would like to thank all of you for supporting us as new authors.

We published Book One of the series, "Amanda Ackers and The Deep Forest Elves" for FREE on January 3rd, 2012. As of today, August 2, 2014, we have reached over 100,000 downloads! To say we are blown away would be a huge understatement! Book two of the series, which was published on March 28, 2012, has 94 percent of the readers downloading book two. I guess a lot of people really do like the story!

I am currently writing book four of the series, titled: “Amanda Ackers and The Lost Family.”

We have received hundreds of emails over that past year from folks wanting book three out NOW! Thank you for that, and it has helped me keep going. We write our stories just for the fun of it, and have full lives other than writing :)

Several people had requested reading Book Three, prior to its publication. I kept that number to 50, and sent out book three two weeks prior to publishing.

Should anyone like a pre-release version of book four when we get to the editing stage, please let us know.

We are very thankful to you all, for supporting our work, which we do for the enjoyment of it.

Our thanks also, to the many of you who have emailed us with kind comments on our stories and the first two books of our novel series, and those who have requested receiving a pre-release versions. We had never thought of doing a pre-release, but thought it was a great idea! It gave many a chance to read book two and now three of Amanda’s adventures, before we actually published it. Thanks to all of you!

We are most humbled by the response we have received, and thank you from the top, middle and bottom of our hearts!

If anyone would like to correspond with us, please shoot us an email when you get the chance, we would love to hear from you.

Hello and thank you for visiting our Smashwords.com page.

My name is Sasha Gabriel, and I would like to take a few moments to say a little about Glenn and myself.

They say that creativity belongs to the young. Well, not always. Young at heart, I’ll buy, but nothing else.

Writing is relatively new for me. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my 60+ years. But writing seemed daunting. How do you write an idea to get over to other people without boring them to death? How do you write conversations that sound like the people who are speaking them?

Once I studied the “how to’s” a bit, and with the encouragement from Glenn, my wonderful husband and best friend, I started writing.

And I love it. So does Glenn.

Writing has opened a door for me that nothing else has – my imagination has soared and I’m absolutely thrilled and thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that others like my writing, as well.

Both Glenn and I have been submitting very, very short stories (no more than 600 word stories) because these are also being entered into a writing contest with that directive.

At the same time, both Glenn and I are writing novels (Glenn’s is awesome!!!! Think the depth of Lord of the Rings with the immediacy of Harry Potter and you’ve got it!).

But I want to share something with you all… Glenn has battled Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia almost his entire life. That’s a mouthful, for sure, but try living with them on a daily basis!

Even so, Glenn has worked to overcome the more serious side effects and his talent in writing, painting, and all over creativity is nothing short of staggering.

Honestly… I’m running to keep up with him but I’m mostly just out of breath!

So… the bottom line is… we’re all just human with all our challenges and it’s those challenges that make what we create that much better.

Please… If you like to read… then write. If you like to paint… then paint. Pick up that paintbrush and start. For writing, get to your keyboard and begin.

We think you’ll surprise yourself at your talents.
And, again… Thank You all for your kind and generous words of appreciation for our stories!

It means the world to us!

-----------------------------

Glenn here.

Just wanted to add that we never thought anyone would even read our work, let alone have downloaded our little stories thousands of times in such a short time.

Because of the kind words from you all, I will continue to write. I have, as Sasha had mentioned, been writing the Amanda Ackers novel series, with Sasha contributing several chapters to each book.

I had only begun writing the novel for fun, for our grandson Logan. I was not going to publish it, just print it out to give to him. However, with all the encouragement I have received via email, from those reading our little short stories, I have decided to publish the first two books of the Amanda Ackers series for FREE. Everyone keeps telling us we need to charge for them, so, should we decide to do so, they will be no more than $0.99 cents in U.S. Dollars :)

My many thanks to all of you, for your continued support.

Please feel free to contact Sasha and I at the following email address. We would love to hear from you, even to just say hi:

Review by: Marcia Carrington on Sep. 25, 2013 :
This is another of the author's great works, a short story which grabs the reader from the beginning, and does not let up until the end. The author's customary humorous touches are in evidence here, and are employed to great effect. Well done.

Review by: Walter Lazo on July 09, 2013 :
Not bad, and I really liked the way the story was executed. There were, however, some awkward elements, such as point of view shifts. Overall, though, good story, very entertaining.

Review by: Bronnie Wu on Sep. 20, 2012 :
An entertaining and competently written story. The ending was apparent about half way through as the author spent far too much time focussing on the hands and face. The townspeoples reactions at the beginning were very much over the top and if their reaction had been a little more muted this story would have more power and entertainment value. Good grammar for once on Smashwords!

I've read all Glenn's stories and really love this one, as well as his "The Shortcut." If you haven't read any of his other stories, or those of his wife Sasha, you need to visit their authors page. This is a great story with an ending that really threw me!
