Today we are taking it easy and only throwing two digital shorts at you. No explanation for it, just laziness on my part, sorry. I have been getting a lot of messages from readers chatting up the digital short and
their ability to be read in various places to help them get through the day. I
had not thought of many of them so here goes: at the train stop waiting for the
train, on the train, at their desks, in between commercials of their favorite
shows, the list keeps going. I enjoy reading them in between the full length
novels as it helps break things up for me and gives me a nice jolt of
satisfaction of having followed a story full circle in a short span.
One Mistake is an interesting 5080 word digital short that had my rapt attention. Andy Frankham-Allen had me hanging on every written word as I was not sure where the story was
going but I knew that something was coming around the corner. Don’t be misled
by the word count; this story packs a punch and has a deep seeded and sad
genesis. Here is a very brief description of what you will find: “When Robert
finds a business card in a phone booth advertising astral projection lessons,
he thinks he has stumbled upon a way to improve his ordinary life.
Unfortunately the instructor has much more sinister plans for his student. A
story from the bestselling author of Seeker and Off Flesh.”
I didn’t time myself when I read this, all I know is that the time went quickly as my eyes were flying through the read. I couldn’t turn the virtual pages fast enough. Frankham-Allen has written a very captivating,
taunt story that stayed with me for a while. As I read more novels, especially
those out of my comfort zone, I am enjoying them much more. This is definitely
something I wouldn’t normally have thought I would have gotten into, but the
writing is that strong , the emotion of the moments that well conveyed, that it
just sucked me into it and didn’t let go till the very last word. Do yourself a
favor and don’t make the One Mistake
