February has the highest word limit at 150, and this flash comes in on the money. This week’s word is contemplative. Stop by the FTP page to see who else has already flashed this word.

There is still time to get into this edition of FTP. Click on Flash in the Pan beneath the header to see the whys and wherefores and to see all the talented authors who are contributing so far.

If you have not yet, stop by and read the reviews for the FTP over at RedmundPro. The new FTP just got its first five star review! Drop both books in your cart. You will not be disappointed. The original is still a free ebook.

More Free!

While you are in the RedmundPro Free Book Bin, take a moment to read the Café Comics. Web comic Bo Lumpkin of Gatorhead Comics and I’ve Been Thinkin’ has put together a comic collection which is free to download and distribute. You can also read it online.

Happy Flashing!

What did Roger’s daughter do? Who did she kill? Is she dead also?
