Confirmed Family Safe?  Yes.


300 Stories

Dieter Rogiers said “I should write more. That’s what I said to myself on the eve of my 35th birthday. 300stories is my way to grab the bull by the horns. My aim? To produce a short story in 300 words or less practically each day for the next year. Some of the stories will be hardly more than a sentence. Some of them will be hell to whittle down to a mere 300 words. It won’t always be easy to keep up the pace and the quality of the stories. But that is the challenge I’m setting myself”.

The result is a great little blog of short stories, each a little gem by itself.

I’d like to qualify giving No against safe for families, Dieter advises ‘there will be some industrial language and graphic descriptions along the way. But that shouldn’t spoil your fun’.

Confirmed Family Safe?  No (see above).


The Story Reading Ape

Chris Graham is one of the most supportive people I have ever encountered online!  His blog, actually a chain of blogs all indexed by this one, carries author interviews, features on authors or specific books, and numerous other matters of interest to readers and authors.  He revels in finding what he describes as “New (to me)” books and authors, and giving his wholehearted support to those he honestly believes deserving of it.  He is a prolific reader and reviewer.

Chris also carries some reblogged items.

One thing is generally a given with Chris is his tremendous sense of fun!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
