Stories on the Go: 101 Very Short Stories by 101 Authors

Zelah Meyer is taking part in Stories on the Go, an anthology featuring 101 short stories by 101 different authors. Her contribution is a 1,000 word prequel romance featuring two of the supporting characters from A Play for the Castle.

The anthology is currently free on Amazon.com, and we are waiting for Amazon to price match to free on their other stores. The anthology is also available on Barnes & Noble, Apple, and Kobo.


Description:

This anthology aims to be a showcase of recent indie writing.

Hugh Howey launched the idea on Kboards, a forum for Kindle readers, but also the meeting place of an active community of indie writers.

The result is this anthology of 101 very short stories by 101 authors.

To make it more attractive for you, the reader, we set ourselves a limit of a thousand words. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes — on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet at home or in the office, but also on your smartphone, on the go, while you are commuting or waiting at a coffee shop for your significant other to arrive.

We included as many genres as we could. We hope that maybe, with only five minutes of your time on the line that would otherwise be wasted anyway, you’ll be tempted to venture outside your comfort zone and try out some new genres and new authors.

Description:

Sarah Mountlow, a pretty young widow, can’t help but fall for Ben Haythorn. He is good, kind, thoughtful – everything her late husband wasn’t. Ben took her in when she had nowhere else to turn. She wishes she could help him with his own problems, but he’s reluctant to tell her what they are.

Successful market gardener Ben Haythorn accepted an exemption from active service during the war in order to care for his sick mother. He’s often called “yellow as hay Haythorn” by people in the village, but when there’s a crisis involving his family from the manor house, Ben might just have it in him to surprise everyone.
