Today’s blog post is going to be something a bit different. Recently a friend of mine sent me a short story he wrote and I absolutely adored it! His story was just too interesting and powerful not to share, and so, with his permission I am sharing it with you today!
It’s been some time since I’ve given an update on my latest project ‘Mud & Daisies.’ If you’ve forgotten what that book is about then feel free to check out it’s description here!
Today’s goal is simply to update you on my progress:
If you’ve been following my blog then you may know that I have a little project that I’ve been working on and am very excited about. The idea for this story was first conceptualized around two years ago, I don’t know how exactly it came about but I when I sat down to write it I was in part inspired by the creepiness of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things as well at Spielberg’s lovable little alien E.T. But this little book is neither of those, rather it’s something fantastical, it’s a modern day fairytale with just as much heart.
What is this book? Well, without any further adieu, I would like to introduce you to my first book, a short story called MUD & DAISIES!
Here is a brief description:
“The two woke up in a dark cavern; the walls twisted with slime and gook. It felt like blood was rushing towards their head, no, not blood… mud.”
Mud & Daisies is a simple fairytale with a lot of heart. The eerie mud creatures have struck again, this time stealing away two children, Andrew and Shelby, with plans to transform them into mindless icky living mud. But when all hope is lost, ‘The Mud Lady’ appears! Who is this unforeseen friend? Will Andrew and Shelby be safe in her gooey hands?
I’m very excited for you all to come on this adventure with me! If you want a bigger preview to this story, I posted an excerpt a few months back. You can find that preview here!
Typically you reveal a title before you reveal the contents of your story, but I figured I’d mix things up. Today I would like to give you guys a small preview of a short story I plan on publishing. The how and when of publishing are still up in the air, but I am certain I’ve got a story that is sure to excite! I know at least I am excited about it!
Here’s a short snippet!
