Flash Anthology Cover & Title Reveal!

I’m back today with more updates about my upcoming flash fiction anthology. The image above is a rough of the cover. And it has the title in it: The Test of Life: Five Short Tales. Here’s my draft of the description for it:

Follow five different characters through these 5 flash fiction stories: From swashbuckling on the high seas, to the greed and prejudice of humans, to impossible choices. Journey to a lake made of the darkest of black magic, and across the frontier in this collection of tales from brand new author, Jacq Walker.

The anthology will feature five stories: ranging from about 600 to about 1,100 words each. Making them each a pretty quick read. The 5 stories are:

  • Angel in the Wild West – A magical being seeks to set herself free, after a long capture, using the greed of men.
  • Forced Choice – A fighter is fatally wounded during an attack of blood-thirty monsters, leaving her with only two choices for her fate.
  • Two Ships – A young sailor in a small sailboat thought she gave pirates the slip, only to spot their ship on the horizon.
  • Black Magic – A black-magic mage can no longer contain the powerful demon within that is bent on destroying her world.
  • Frontier Rules – A pioneer mother crossing the frontier must protect her two children, when she strays into bear country.

I’m getting everything together to self-publish my flash anthology. My hope is to have everything ready by next week, but we will need to see how that goes. I’ve never published an ebook on Amazon, but I’m a fast learner.

Creative & a little odd. Silly & thoughtful. Jacq loves the beach and books. She has loved novels since I was a little kid, and made this site to pursue her creative interests.
