Sharing is not an option!
We tend to think of squirrels as cute furry creatures that scamper around playing while looking for nuts. Yet I’ve a different outlook on these rodents from Hades.
As an animal lover, one who’s owned by eight birds, I’ve had the opportunity to observe a group of squirrels around my home here in the suburbs for the past year.

The inevitable is sometimes painful.
A tooth’s life is never easy. It puts up with multitudes of abuse. From the acidic effects of the atrocious Pepsi, to the sugary sweetness brought about by chocolate, its pain knows no bounds.

“Stuck” by Lissette E. Manning
Every writer tries to get the right hook for their book or short stories. This author nailed it on the first page. Pages fly as you want to know what happens on the other side. Getting this important part of the puzzle in writing a novel is not easy.
The main character of the story is Annie who is experiencing a post apocalyptic world. Just like the one we read and hear about in books and movies. It starts off with Annie making her way out into the chaos, destruction and ruins of her area while trying to find food for her hungry children. While it is dangerous to be out in the open her kids are starving and will die if food is not found.
The story was a quick read but in it the author managed to give out imagery that we could imagine in our head rather vividly. We felt Annie’s pain, frustration heartache as it fell of the page.
Only one complaint, I wanted to read more about Annie and was not ready for it to end when it did. But in hindsight it did finish at the right spot of the story.

“The Lustre” by Kate Policani.
I won this book through a promotion that Kate was running. If you purchase it you will not be disappointed. The author had me hooked by page four. Her ability to show and not tell will be one
reason I will be passing this book for others to read like I normally do. Just this time I will be keeping the book. The examples in this book one can draw from is priceless.
The book is about a young woman by the name of Angelina who at a young age knows she is different. She has this gift of absorbing pain from others while giving them pleasure in return. She is special among her peers. Each chapter dives into a different POV from the men who come across her path.
And by the way, she is not human.
This is a wonderful book. It is fast paced and can be read relatively quickly.
Heritage of Deceit
on May 23, 2014
The short story for today is “Heritage of Deceit” by Graham Downs.
Our main character is Lloyd. While checking online while at work, he believes he has found a treasure from the past, a ring with an evil past. One that could be worth a lot of money. But it is not just about the money but the fact it would give people closure on a past that has haunted them.
Why is he so interested? One of his coworkers has a ring, one that looks very much like the one from the picture he has found. The problem is she never takes off the ring. According to her it is an heirloom so it is very near and dear to her. The trick now is to somehow get the ring from her.
This was a delightful short read. It was quick but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I kept on reading, wanting to know what happened, how the story was going to end. My only ding to this story is that I wish it had been longer so the story could have shined more.
