Alfie Dog Fiction is my new four-legged friend. Four of my stories are now available on the site, priced 39p each. They range from literary and historical to feelgood. Here are the blurbs.
'Bare Earth'–Keen gardener, Peter, has hopes of finding a girlfriend when his new neighbours move in. He is encouraged by their reaction to his floral presents and DIY help, but it is not long before he discovers a rival.
'Between Lives'–The narrator meets Greta and her young son when she is fleeing the Russians in Germany at the end of World War II. Greta is naïve, but sticking together as they try to cross the border seems the safest option.
'The Bitter Harvest'–In 1915, Jim Stokes arrives to work on the Lambourne's farm. There is little warmth in the marriage of Dolly and Frank Lambourne, and Dolly is finding it hard to cope now that their son is at the front. Inevitably, her relationship with Jim becomes more than employer and labourer.
'The Cup that Refreshes'–Elizabeth tries to avoid interrupting her composer husband, who is struggling to create his latest masterpiece, but his music gives her a headache. How long can she tolerate his selfishness before something has to give?
There are around 1,200 stories at Alfie Dog Fiction altogether, so there are plenty for readers to choose from. Why not have a browse?
