A Short of Shorts: Cosmic Coincidence

 

 

 

As always, the amazing background art was done by Blue!

You guys gave me the WEIRDEST array of prompts for the first open story, what even. XD I had a blast writing it, though, so hopefully you enjoyed reading it! And those dragon promptseveryone knows me too well, I’ve become predictable. Also remember that I’m still taking prompts for the next story, and the prompt theme is SUMMER! (You can check out this post for more info, but feel free to prompt here.) Anyhow, here’s all the prompts!:

You can also find out more about the project, past stories, and how to get your own custom stories on this page. And if you’re enjoying the project and want to support it, consider dropping me a Ko-Fi?

See you guys in two weeks for the next story!

Prompt Call: SPACE

Prompt call time! Typically I’ll post this the day before I post a story, but I figured surprising peeps with a story instead of a lame prompt call would be best.

Anyhow, your prompt theme is SPACE!!! Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s more of a guideline to get your brain juices flowing.

  • You can prompt anywhere, here, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram.
  • You can prompt at any point in time, but if it might get worked into the next story if I already started writing the story
  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, nothing offensive, and I don’t do fanfic, alas.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories.
  • If you want to be tagged in future prompt call posts so you don’t miss one, let me know!

Cover Reveal: Machinations by Hayley Stone

I’m THRILLED to be a part of the cover reveal for this novel! Hayley is a fellow Pitch Wars allum,  and I happen to know she’s an amazing person AND author. Here’s the blurb about her book:

Perfect for fans of Robopocalypse, this action-packed science-fiction debut introduces a chilling future and an unforgettable heroine with a powerful role to play in the battle for humanity’s survival.

The machines have risen, but not out of malice. They were simply following a command: to stop the endless wars that have plagued the world throughout history. Their solution was perfectly logical. To end the fighting, they decided to end the human race.

A potent symbol of the resistance, Rhona Long has served on the front lines of the conflict since the first Machinations began—until she is killed during a rescue mission gone wrong. Now Rhona awakens to find herself transported to a new body, complete with her DNA, her personality, even her memories. She is a clone . . . of herself.

Trapped in the shadow of the life she once knew, the reincarnated Rhona must find her place among old friends and newfound enemies—and quickly. For the machines are inching closer to exterminating humans for good. And only Rhona, whoever she is now, can save them.

AND NOW… THE AMAZING COVER!
