Only three more days of this tour. It has been amazing visiting with so many folks along the way and the wonderful lady who is hosting me today is someone I greatly admire. Annette Rochelle Aben. She is a communicator, wordSmith, artist, guide, mentor, muse, and one heck of a poet. I love her daily Angel Messages. They are always uplifting.
And for the entire month of November, she is featuring an “Attitude of Gratitude” post daily. What are you grateful for?
One of her most recent books, Tell Me A Story in 99 Words, is such a compelling read!
Here’s my Review:
I’ve been a fan of Annette Rochelle Aben’s poetry for quite a few years, and when I saw she had published a book of flash fiction, I knew I was in for a treat. And a treat it is! Anyone who is a writer knows what a challenge it is to write a story in 99 words. The writing has to be concise and tight, and that is exactly what Ms. Aben managed to do. I found stories with humor, satire, wisdom, the complexity of the human mind, and family. A few stood out to me personally as favorites. “Advancement” is so insightful about a strong woman, as is “Eyes Forward.” “Bedfellows” is such a realistic story about a girl with too many brothers and an abusive father. “Cash For Cars” moved me. “Drops In The Bucket” relates the daily grind cycle in which rewards are small. I’d venture to say there is a story for everyone in this collection. It’s a quick, easy read and is so well-written. I highly recommend this book.
So grab your copy and meet me at Annette’s place!
