Short Story Sunday published our first story in November launching with hugely popular ‘The True Color of the Sky’ by published author Chrysler Szarlan (read it here).
We subsequently published a quartet of original stories from talented authors including:
– ‘The Opening’ by Johanna Skibsrud
– ‘Bluebirds’ by Jamie Ryder
– ‘Dark Disneyland’ by Patrick Sagaram
– ‘Clay’ by Lauren Bell
What’s Next? Don’t miss our Festive Special!
We have now confirmed the line-up for our inaugural Short Story Sunday ‘5 Days of Christmas Festive Special’ which will feature a new festive story published each day in the run-up to Christmas starting Sunday 20th December.
We have five crackers which we are looking forward to sharing with you (it wouldn’t be Christmas without a cliché!). Here are the highlights:
Day 1: Sunday 21st December – An exquisitely-written classic festive ghost tale with a modern twist and a spine-tingling ending.
Day 2: Monday 22nd December – A darkly festive Victorian tale for those feeling a little macabre.
Day 3: Tuesday 23rd December – A beautifully haunting piece of flash fiction about a mysterious Christmas card.
Day 4: Christmas Eve – A lightly humorous tale for those who enjoy a delightful ‘Christmas Cat’ story
Day 5: Christmas Day – The main event and a truly show-stopping olde tale about a housemaid’s changing relationship with her annual Christmas Pudding preparations and the upper-class family she labours for; this is a real treat for those who love the dark side of Downton Abbey as well as those looking for a traditional festive tale…
