    Flash Fiction - Under The Bed

    Bare Books Podcast - Flash Fiction - Under The Bed!
    Our penultimate episode of season 3 and yet again we are truly astounded by the high standard of stories we receive into our email inbox for these flash fiction episodes. 
    We kick off with a sci-fi meets fantasy story written for us by Gerry O'Keeffe.
    Followed by Daizi's dose of gossip over the garden fence.
    April brings us a huge dose of quirky with an almost cute, but not quite, squatter!
    And we round off the goodness with a thriller from Carolyn Ward-Daniels. 
    you could guest host on a future podcast with your own flash fiction story.
    indie writers old and new can get published in our indie author flash fiction anthology for 2021. All profits will be going to charity. We have chosen to go with the very worthy Book Trust Uk [Getting Children Reading].
    This is the platform for all things indie.
    Available on the best podcast platforms, including, but not limited to Apple podcasts, Spotify, Google play and Podbean with us, your regular hosts Daizi Rae and April Berry.

    Return to Kirrin v Ending Samsara

    Return to Kirrin v Ending Samsara

    Bare Books Podcast - Return to Kirrin v Ending Samsara
    We have been blessed with some brilliant titles in our inbox recently, so we have chosen our favourites of the moment. April has read Return to Kirrin by Neil and Suzy Howlett, so listen up to find out what she thought of it. April, like me, grew up reading The Famous Five, Secret Seven and Malory Towers, so expectations are high!
    I (Daizi) am currently reading Ending Samsara by J W Voyce. It’s not very often I find a book that’s pace matches my lazy style of reading so well and still keeps me invested. So I am very much engaged right now at just over half way through this book. How significantly can you effect another persons life without ever meeting them? Good question, and it’s the overriding question that is asked and answered throughout this book. Since we recorded this I've moved on a little and Olek is breaking my heart...
    Indie writers old and new can get published in our indie author flash fiction anthology for 2021. All profits will go to charity, so if you have a favourite charity that means a lot to you, let us know, as we haven't decided where we will donate yet. 
    Join us as we work through our indie author reading list and bring you our honest and upfront reviews.

These stories show that there is always hope, even under the gloomiest of skies.
