Mythical Minstrelsy and Flash Fiction Fridays will focus on flash fictions centering around folklore, myth, fantasy, and magic that I have written or have been sent to me for publication. Book reviews will also be published. Author, editor, illustrator, publisher, poet, and rpg site owner interviews are planned for in the future. The episodes are intentionally short due to the nature of flash fiction. Reviews tend to go up on Wednesdays, Flashfictions on Fridays, Interviews Sundays.

I am the author of the "Selkies' Skins" and "Dragon Shaman" series. I also write poetry, illustrate, and do some narration. I also run a small publishing company, THG StarDragon Publishing. If you wish YOUR poetry or flash fictions to be included, or to be interviewed, please see https://www.thgstardragonpublishingblog.com/p/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction.html for details.

    Beltane Fire Cleansing Meditation

    Beltane Fire Cleansing Meditation

    This is a very short meditation recorded for Beltane. Given more time I could have made it longer, but I have not had the time. This is not quite as ASMR inducing as I was hoping for. However there are a few triggers tucked in. Bonfires led in to the idea of camping, thus the chosen video clip.

    Flash Fiction Fridays #32: Haiku Month part 1 and The Woman In Green

    Flash Fiction Fridays #32: Haiku Month part 1 and The Woman In Green

    This episode contains several haiku that I had written this past Haiku Month, as well as a reading of The Woman in Green from "Strange Stories from the Lodge of Leisures," a public domain book available on Gutenberg.org. A goddess visits a man, but what is her true form? A dragonfly is fleeting, and what is the expression of a divine love?Music track: Shiro (Instrumental) by Aussens@iter (c) copyright 2017 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/tobias_weber/56795 Ft: Hans Montgomery Atom

    Flash Fiction Fridays #31: Poetry In His Veins (Dark Fiction)

    Flash Fiction Fridays #31: Poetry In His Veins (Dark Fiction)

    Today's podcast episode is up with some poetry and a short dark fiction by myself. I actually GREATLY disturbed myself writing today's feature because "oh, I'll write about a writer that's snowed in" went to "it's the end for me, it's at the window" very quickly.I am still dealing with minor ear, Eustachian tube, and throat issues, and thus also am not speaking at normal levels, as well as having to rebuild filter curves for audio processing. Due to a variety of issues this therefore does not sound as loud to me after bringing the RMS up, and I still sound a little muffled.Not intended for children. For those that need trigger warnings although the poems do not deal with death the feature story does.Gong sound courtesy of Cloudy Skies after a fortuitous accidental discovery.=Full Podcast content=www.FlashFictionFridays.com Podcasts.com: http://www.podcasts.com/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction-fridays-and-ames-bookshelf-1a06920c4 iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mythical-minstrelsy-and-flash-fiction-fridays/id1461538463 Google Play: https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&apn=com.google.android.music&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Iregmi7sag7o3fg6p3e32k5ghwq?t%3DMythical_Minstrelsy_and_Flash_Fiction_Fridays%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1vLsYYcHOkDdasTFvqe9Ph =Flash Fiction Only Pods=Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/teresa-garcia-34 =Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragonFiverr (if you'd like to hire my voice): https://www.fiverr.com/users/amehanaACX narration: https://www.acx.com/narrator?p=A2Y7PVT9DS7158 =Social and Communication=THG StarDragon Publishing, Mythical Minstrelsy & Arashiryuu Productions Discord: https://discord.gg/hvswe2A  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amehanaarashi/ Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/amehanaarashi Facebook Artist/Author: https://www.facebook.com/Teresa.L.H.Garcia/ =Other places and ways to support=Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Teresa-Garcia/e/B009Q938VE  Commissions Info: https://www.deviantart.com/amehanarainstardrago/journal/Commissioning-Information-566657935 DeviantArt: http://amehanarainstardrago.deviantart.com  Gumroad: http://www.gumroad.com/thgstardragonPublishing Blog: http://www.thgstardragonpublishingblog.com Publishing Website: http://www.thgstardragon.com Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/TeresaGarcia  Storenvy: http://thgstardragon.storenvy.com/   Check now and then for new things, some I can't list just yet.Threadless: https://thgstardragon.threadless.com Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/Amehana Livejournal: http://rainstardragon.livejournal.com  Dreamwidth: http://rainstardragon.dreamwidth.org  =Reviews, Readings, and Requests=Want to send me something to read on here or to review?
