For those of you who are not acquainted with Sarah Ann Hall, she is a wonderful writer. She writes anything from romantic stories to dark fiction. Her works have been published in several places and like me, she enjoys participating in writing challenges. Visit her blog to read some of her flash fiction and haibun.

Sarah Ann also dabbles in several forms of art such as designing jewelry and painting. Watch out because this talented lady has a project coming upโ€”a short story collection illustrated by artist Janice Hume.

Iโ€™m really excited about this book. If thereโ€™s one thing better than a compilation of well-written stories, itโ€™s a compilation of well-written stories AND beautiful illustrations. ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out Sarah Ann Hall’s blog: http://sarahannhall.wordpress.com/

I would also like to thank everyone who re-blogged/ shared my post about the release of 100 Nightmares and also those who purchased the book. ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember, I want need your reviews!! โค

Like me, she enjoys the challenge of flash fiction. Dee has written some short stories and is currently working on the first chapters of her novel! I’m very excited for her. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dawn Miller is a wonderful writer. I like the honesty in her storytelling. Her writing really speaks to the reader and youโ€™ll find that there are just some of her stories that you can oddly relate with. Sheโ€™s very good at that.

But more than that, Dawn is also a brilliant photographer. Look around her blog http://lingeringvisions.wordpress.com/ and feast your eyes on gorgeous photographs of nature, architecture and so much more.

Dawn has a wonderful way of combining images with words. But there are some of her photographs that manage to tell a story by themselves. Sheโ€™s a very prolific blogger and joins a lot of photo challenges. She even hosts her own monthly photo challenge A Lingering Look at Architecture and a weekly photo challenge A Lingering Look at Windows.

Thank you, Patricia!

Patricia writes for the simple pleasure of doing itโ€ฆ truly the best reason to write. ๐Ÿ™‚

I really like Patricia. Sheโ€™s one of the first bloggers here at WordPress who had left an impression on me. I think sheโ€™s a truly beautiful and brave woman.

Check out her blog http://highfiveandraspberries.wordpress.com/ where she posts haiku, haibun and short fiction.

Her haiku has always been one of my favorites back in my Carpe Diem days and I hope to be writing haiku again one of these days. ๐Ÿ™‚ but oh, you ABSOLUTELY have to check out her weekly 100-word stories for Friday Fictioneers. Her contributions to FF are consistently amazing, no matter what genre. For me, she’s certainly one of the best in the group.

Thank you, Ron!

Thank you, Ron, for featuring me on your blog and for the very generous post about my upcoming story collection, 100 Nightmares.

Ron is a super nice guy, even offering me advice and essential publishing tips. Iโ€™m really grateful to have writer friends like him. ๐Ÿ™‚
