Do you read Flash Fiction?
Flash Fiction is a term referring to bite-sized stories ranging from 5 to 1500 words in length. They’re fun to read when you’re not in the mood to commit to a novel-length book, but you’d like a break from the real world.
What’s a Drabble?
A Drabble is a 100-word-long Flash Fiction story. A 200-word-long story is called a Double Drabble. Like any genre, not all Flash Fiction is created equal. When done right, the storyteller reels you in, surprises you with a sudden twist, and/or makes you care so much about the characters you just met that you want to read more.
Satisfying, but leaves you wanting more
I wasn’t much of a Drabble fan until my friend, Patricia Lynne (a.k.a. Patricia Josephine), started sharing hers. I’ve gotta say, Patty is a master of the Double Drabble. Her flash fiction manages to create a full story while still leaving me wanting to know what happens next. (I still feel sorry for one of the characters she wrote about in a story I read a few years back!)
Brand new book
So I’m excited to tell you about Patty’s brand new book: A Quick Bite. It’s a collection of Double Drabbles featuring vampires, werewolves, and zombies. Much like a box of fine chocolates, you will find it hard to stop at just one story in A Quick Bite! Grab your copy here: A Quick Bite.
Blurb for A Quick Bite
These monsters tickle our imagination.
Sink your teeth into a collection of tales about paranormal creatures that go bump in the night. Each story is told in exactly 200 words and designed to give you a quick bite no matter how busy your day is.
Are you hungry?
About the author:
Patricia Josephine is a writer of Urban Fantasy and Sci-Fi Romance books. She actually never set out to become a writer, and in fact, she was more interested in art and band in high school and college. Her dreams were of becoming an artist like Picasso.
On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head for fun. That was the start of her writing journey, and she hasn’t regretted a moment. When she’s not writing, she’s watching Doctor Who or reading about serial killers.
She’s an avid knitter. One can never have too much yarn. She writes Young Adult Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Fantasy under the name Patricia Lynne.
Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow.
