Relentless Ruby, Find Me An Oasis - Nailpolish Stories


One haunted past

* plus *

One barren future 

* equals *

Two mini stories - Relentless Ruby and Find Me An Oasis, each exactly 25 words - published in the October 2018 issue of Nailpolish Stories.

Now that's my kind of math.

  4. Super! Both stories are terrific. It takes a lot of talent to put so much punch into so few words. You're verrrry good cooking this kind of "soup."

  5. Sweeeeet! It's like eating the last two bittersweet morsels - tasty bits with a twisty bite. Then wishing there were more!

    1. Love this - "twisty bite"! Thank you, Lee.

      I guess you could say my stories are "dark" chocolate with a surprise in the center? :)
