Bare Books Podcast - Flash Fiction - Don't Be Embarrassed, It's Normal!

April is exercising her funny bone this week! Who know she even had one! Her story proper tickled me, have a listen and see what you think. I (Daizi) have written a flash fiction without even a hint of a dead body, it's so light hearted I'm not sure that the pair of us haven't had a bump on the head! 

So sit back and relax as we read to you about hypnotherapy, indecent behaviour, a talking exuberant little puppy and new family connections. We're in danger of making you grin this week. 

you could guest host on a future podcast with your own flash fiction story.

Bare Books - The Weight of Rain by T. C. Emerys

The Weight of Rain, T. C Emerys' debut collection of short stories, are set across Britain and Ireland. They are emotional, suspenseful and hopeful.

The two stories from this collection that we are reviewing on this episode are the title story The Weight of Rain and The Beach at Rinsmore Point, where Cathryn's wife is hiding something.

Each of these people has loved and lost, and the rain falls on them just the same. These stories show that there is always hope, even under the gloomiest of skies.

Carolyn Ward-Daniels is co-hosting with us on this episode, as we have 3 more brand spanking new original stories to read to you for the writing prompt; Why are you blushing. With no prior discussion between the three of us, we each managed to have philandering adulteress men in our stories. Spooky or what!

Painting The White House - Hal Marcovitz

We enjoyed our time with Hal, it's always a joy to get to know a little about the man behind the book, and this was no exception. With decades of journalism behind him, turning his pen to this work of fiction was a no brainer.  Funny things have been going on at the White House for centuries. Consider the problems encountered by President Abe Robbins in this fun novel. First Lady Janey Robbins likes to hang out in biker bars and First Daughter Jodie Robbins gets herself kicked out of Yale, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

You can have a nosy online too, Hal has an online presence right here: Painting The White House
