The Amazon kindle store has published my latest book, Sparks. Its contents include 36 pages of short stories in the genres of flash and micro fiction.
What can one say when writing flash fiction (1,000 words or fewer) or micro fiction (500 words or fewer)? Sparks presents a collection of short pieces in which several different themes are explored: relationships, the arts, nature, the seasons and travel. To add variety, pieces of non-fiction have also been included.
Flash and micro fiction has been written and read for many ages. Access to the internet has also enhanced our awareness of this genre through numerous online journals, devoted entirely to the style. Its brevity makes it easy to download flash fiction into your computer, tablet, electronic reader, or smart phone.
I hope you will enjoy reading these short shots during your moments of free time.
“Mary Mageau’s love of nature – in all its forms – is evident in this collection of fiction. Also evident is Mary’s joy in the arts and her fascination with and wonder of travel, in Australia and elsewhere. Dip into this book when you need to be inspired or to pass the time gently. She is an accomplished writer.”
