The Kindle Coffee-Break Collection, Volume 2 is now available, and my short story, Toe, is included. Toe was inspired by an accident I suffered at work this past summer--resulting in the loss of one of my fave digits. I wrote the story while I was laid up in rehab (more like a nursing home) and pretty much drugged out of my mind. But, have no fear, I edited the story during my more lucid moments.
This is the second collection of short stories offered by Mark Williams International Digital Publishing and author, Saffina Desforges in the Kindle Coffee-Break series. Please check it out!
Here's a description:
Saffina Desforges is the Kindle-UK best-selling author of 'Sugar & Spice' and 'Snow White': Book 1 of the the 'Rose Red' crime thriller series. ('Rapunzel' will be released early 2012)
If you're like us, you'll have found that since you got your e-reader you've been reading far more than you used to.
And while it's great to snuggle up in a cozy chair for a few hours and read a great book in one sitting like in the good old days, (when a book was made of paper and ink - anyone out there old enough to remember?) with an e-reader in your pocket, briefcase or handbag you can now read anywhere, whenever you have fifteen minutes spare.
Of course unless you're gifted in some way you can't read a full length book in fifteen minutes, or in your lunch session, or your coffee break, or waiting at the dentist's, or for the kids to come out of school. But you can read a short story.
There are a lot of short-story anthologies out there with different themes and genres, and if you want all sci-fi, or all romance, or all zombies then there's plenty to choose from. But when we looked around for a variety pack - a pot-pourri of mixed genre short stories so as readers we could dip into what we fancied and try something new as well - we found a gap in the market.
So we got together with some of the finest new and previously published short-story authors and collated the 'Saffina Desforges Presents...' collection of varied genre and varied length short stories.
We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed putting this collection together.
Look out for volumes 3 coming soon to a Kindle near you!
