Post-Apocalyptic Flash Fiction – 1

Do you like writing flash fiction?

Today’s prompt: I landed in the year 2050.


  1. You can write prose or poetry.
  2. Post-apocalyptic genre only.
  3. Keep your “flash” to less than 250 words. Size does matter.
  4. While I encourage you to read other people’s work, I ask that you only make positive comments.
  5. Your writing should be submitted before next Friday.

Have fun.



Draft Guidelines for Book Review Submissions

What you need to know about me

  • I will only post 4 and 5 star reviews. They will appear first here and then later on Amazon and Goodreads. I will add to the review that I have received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
  • I read across many genres. I’m a sucker for a well-written book with suspense and strong characters.
  • I have a low threshold for violence and will skim gritty details or put the book down if my gut wrenches and rises in my throat. Sex, on the other hand, is fine.
  • I haven’t read a Zombie book, but I’ve seen the odd movie. I’m willing to try a Zombie book, but no promises.
  • I write full time. Reading  is my hobby. Translation: I will probably post reviews twice a month.
  • All my reviews are free. It’s my way of giving back for all the great reviews people have written for me. I think of them as a way of saying thank you to authors who spent hours crafting a work of art.
  • Credentials? B.A. in Eng. M.Ed, a lifetime of reading

What my reviews look like

I do not write book reports summarizing your plot. I write a paragraph or two about what I liked about your book. I state where I think it fits on “the shelf” and who I think it will appeal to. And I like to quote at least one of my favorite lines.

My Review Process

If you would like me to review your book, the process looks like this:

  1. You email me your book blurb and cover jpg. Type, “Book Review,” in the subject line.  (
  2. If your book interests me, I’ll contact you and request a mobi file (Kindle).
  3. When I receive it, your book will go on my tbr pile. I won’t guarantee you a review, because I won’t write one unless I really like your book.

Does this make sense? Let me know. I’m planning on tweaking it and making the final version a permanent page.
