A Valentine for Venus – new release

Sonny Collins announces that his novelette, A Valentine for Venus, is now available as a Kindle book at Amazon.

A romantic and fun little novelette about what happens when Venus and Cupid bet on who can make someone fall in love first. To make it fair, their grandfather, Zeus, decides to forbid them the use of magic and then goes a step farther by sending them both to Earth as neighbors to a teenage girl and her widowed father – who are also his chosen mortals for this little experiment. They each have two weeks to help their subject fall in love by midnight on Valentine’s Day. Of course things get a bit complicated when Venus realizes her mortal might be falling for her instead of the woman she has chosen for him. Cupid, on the other hand, seems to have the entire high school under his influence. Or does he?

March 17th Meeting – Writing Prompts

Last month, at the meeting, the stories from the prompts were wonderful, each one so different. Thank you, Chris, Charlie, Tom and Starla for participating.

This month’s Prompts are:

  • Write about a time in your life when you struggled with a choice and made the right one.
  • What would you do if you were locked inside your favorite department store overnight?
  • What would you do if you could travel in the past?
  • How would you determine if you were in love with the person you are dating or is it just a passing fling?

OR you can write about anything you would like. The above are only suggestions.

Louise
