E is for Ended

 
First Wednesday of the Month
 
In addition to the A to Z challenge, it is also IWSG time. Thank you to Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this each month. If you want to join us you can sign up here.
Right now my head is spinning, even more than it usually does this time of year. Usually I do flash fiction, so that’s nothing new, but this year I’m doing them as Ubooks, which are very, very time consuming. I’m not complaining, just overwhelmed. Thankfully, I’ve done most of them ahead of time. Notice I said most, not all. My goal was to do all, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. No biggie; just busy. Are you doing A to Z? Are you feeling crazed, too?
And...

 


This year I will be featuring my flash fiction in a collection titled Alphabet Soup; Ubook style.
 
Each video is 90 seconds or less and commercial free during April. Feel free to share them on which ever social media you use.


Like Ubooks? You can check out the rest here. 
Don’t forget to look for my short story, Haunted, coming out on May 3rd in Parallels: Felix was here, as well as my short story, The Reader, set to be released May 31st as part of The Thing that Changed Me Anthology.

  11. Crazed is the proper word, and feeling guilty that I can't do them all justice!

  13. That was really cool! What a fun genre! I work in an office where digital storytelling abounds. I've never seen anything quite like this, so I intend to bring it back and share it with my colleagues. Thanks! I'm excited to see more as the month goes on.

  14. Powerful.

    This is my first experience with a UBook. The music certainly added to the story.

  15. One thing I love about this challenge is seeing all the cool things people are up to. I've never heard of UBooks, but that was really neat.

    I felt quite chilled the whole time. The music was so ominous, I thought one of them was going overboard. I'd love to see more of their story.

  16. AtoZ is quite the experience. It takes a lot out of you, it is says a lot about you for finishing at the end.
