Flash in the Pan

Liza mentally ticked off all the things on her list. Her eyes darted around the room, but she made the effort to keep her head still.

The date was chosen. The place was reserved. The invitations were sent. The supplies had arrived. She was pleased with her progress.

When her eyes fell on the heating vent, a shimmer of a smile crossed her lips. Day after tomorrow, the wedding guests would be dancing around this room in joyous ignorance. The arsenic in the cake would take care of those who did not collapse on the dance floor from the radon.

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

This twisted number hits the mark at precisely 100 words, the limit for July. This week’s feature word is progress.

Have you stopped by to see who has jumped ahead in the Flash in the Pan game? New authors are trying their hands. Are you ready to start flashing with us? All the details are on the FTP page.

Only one more flash before Flashes from the Bistro is available at RedmundPro. The sale is almost over on the set of FTP books. Before the new one comes out, grab all the others to see why flashing is addictive for readers and authors.

Why is Liza’s net so wide?  Are you ready for the new book?

  1. Her net is so wide because she invited all the busy bodies that tried to butt in and take over. She is about to perform a public service.

    I’m totally ready for the new book!

    • Me, too! I am ready for it to be finished so I can start the next one. Have you seen how many new people are in on this one?

      • Yes I have, and if it ever stops storming long enough for me to catch up I’ll get to read through the submissions without getting interrupted.

  5. Naughty Liza. She’ll probably eliminate half the town. Bet it’s a big wedding and she has a big hang-up. Naughty, Red. Love it.
