I’d like to introduce you all to Laura Lord. She is not only a great writer but truly a kind, generous and giving person. Laura, without even really knowing me, designed my cover for my e book with the image that I chose. I am very grateful to her.
That being said, I couldn’t pass up this short story submission that Laura wants to share with us, because it’s so creepily good!!
Enjoy the read and Happy Halloween to you all!
Hi guys! It’s me, Laura A. Lord, aka the Mama. I’m a mother (obviously) of two wonderful little monsters, with another on the way, an author, a blogger…the list goes on and on. I am blessed enough to be able to spend most all of my days writing, and have published three books in the last few years. You can check them out on Amazon, and I’ll love you forever, or at least really, really like you. Better even, follow me on wordpress and check out my, almost daily, musings and snippets of life with children, family, the Husband, and my dementia-suffering uncle. Laughter truly is medicine, and I medicate daily.
It is Better
“And so put to death the sinful, earthly things…” Brian began, pausing as his lips fought with the next words. “…lurking with you. Have nothing to do with sexual immority…”
“Immorality, Brian. Immorality,” their teacher, Ms. Grayson, corrected him.
“Immorality, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, ‘cause a greedy person is an idolater…” His words came faster, catching up and running over one another. “…worshipping all the things in the world. Because these are sins, and God is angry and coming.”
“The anger of God is coming.” Continue reading

I want to introduce you to Silouan Sautter from the blog http://wordsinsidemysoul.wordpress.com/ .
He submitted this short story to my call out for guest bloggers.
I really hope you enjoy this read as much as I do!
I was captivated by his story!
He sat in the shade of a great log, fallen beside the road. Hooded, with his cloak spread around him, he seemed a statue in the shade of the log. He had not stirred for some time. The sun infused the noisome swamp mists with a hazy golden light. Insects hummed and chirped. Leaves drifted lazily on the slow breezes. Time slowed to an unbearable crawl. Under his hood the young fighter smiled. The demon was strong. Continue reading
I want to introduce you all to Haley Schluter.
She is a vibrant, young, promising college student with a ‘voice’ that makes you feel like you are sitting across from her at a coffee shop having a chat. Her writing style is fun, comfortable, confident and she is a riot! Oh and did I mention she has curly hair? I’m a fan of curly hair. Watch for her and her curly hair, I’m sure you will be seeing more of her in the years to come!
Why Your Blog’s Voice Speaks Volumes
I am looking for a few guest bloggers.
The posts must be new pieces, never before posted/published.
The topics that I am interested in are as follows:
- Personal experience pieces on publishing, writing, etc. for example the ups and downs of being a writer/poet/author/blogger or writing tips, tricks of the trade, your writing routine, how to keep motivated, the muse… etc.
- A book review of my new poetry anthology The Vault First Floor. Keep it real, honest and creative.
- An important cause or mission to you that you want to bring awareness to.
If any of these topics interest you please email me your submission for review at email@example.com with Guest Blog in the subject line of your email. Please be sure to include all public domain, free to use images or consent on other images.
The night falls and my heart stalls
To an altered beat
The rhythm changing to meet my sleep
That is tormented while I weep

In light of my post The 1 thing that Writers and Bloggers need to know before they begin I decided that I would like to write a few duets, well, 3 to be exact.
I am looking for fellow writers and poets to do a duet with me that I will post on my blog and then add to my free ebook that I will be publishing in the upcoming months along with all of the past ‘Storetries’
The concept is a back and forth piece written together. One will be with a writer going back and forth between their paragraph prose and my poetic verse. Two will be a purely poetic duet. Continue reading
Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!
When I started my blog I had no idea what to expect or even any idea what to write about. The journey has evolved on it’s own and I’m so amazed that even one of you actually wants to read my poetry and posts so thank you so much for helping me build confidence in my writing. There is much more to come I assure you!
I know over the summer my Pay Day Thursdays were interrupted along with the weekly ‘Storetries’ but they will return in October for those of you that are wondering and interested!
Also, the ads that keep popping up at the end of my posts are not there by my choice, Word Press just decides to put them where they want…for now.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, TODAY IS A HAPPY DAY FOR ME!!
