Apparently, today is National Flash Fiction day.
This automatically made me thing of Behind the Scenes. The first third of the book at least.
The first third of the book is a compendium of Flash Fiction that relates the to the Fragments Universe.
What is the Fragments Universe?
Well, it stared with the book of the same name. Fragments, a book based upon a grief model that had six inter-related stories. There have been subsequent spin-offs; Kangana for one, as well the Gorbind Phalla Novelette that is The Battle of Gravelly Hill Interchange.
This selection of flash fiction is a behind the scenes peek into the lives of fictional characters. What is it, that they get up to when they aren’t clogging up my fountain pens.
We have Gorbind, Padmi, Devan Coultrie as well as Hades,Lord of the Underworld and the vampire, Lady Aurelia. Some of them, are established characters from fountain pens. Aurelia and Hades are waitig in the wings.
To be honest, Aurelia and Hades have two interesting stories in Behind the Scenes. Aurelia’s a business woman in the eighties, with Hades visiting The Women’s Hospital where meets The Angel Gabriel.
They both have respective works in progress sat next to my desk.
Aurelia also has a second book, that involves werewolves and a cabal of vampires.
When it comes to flash fiction, there is a second volume to be worked upon and developed. We see more of Gorbind and Padmi, which might be rather interesting.
