Hissing Widow

The Case of the Hissing Widow

Splintered Blade of the Red Savior

Sorry about this. Ran into a bit of a snag on the back end of the site so won’t be able to get anything new up in a timely manner today. This blast from the past originally posted on August 18, 2014. I just realized that it is now almost …

“Hi, how are you today?” “I’m Good, thanks for asking.” “Nothing really, just hanging out and stuff.” “Yeah, I heard that too. They do it every week.” “Yep, Indies Unlimited and their flash fiction challenge.” “No it really is a thing. They give out a written and a picture prompt …
