Our thanks to author Melissa Wray for her generosity in sharing space on her blog with us today. Melissa posts short works of 500 words or less by guest authors in the aptly named feature Flash Fiction Friday. If you have a flash fiction piece that would fit her guidelines, she’s happy to hear from you.

We shared a story based on our young adult novel, The SkyHorse. Though the experience in the story is not part of the book, it does relate to an adventure mentioned by our young hero, Tovi Taggert, and is part of Tovi’s backstory. These bits and pieces of character history are left out of the book because they’re a digression from the plot.

We had fun re-creating Tovi’s night in the woods. Visit Melissa’s blog to read what happened to Tovi.

After you’ve enjoyed Tovi’s story, click around the rest of the site to learn about Melissa’s journey on the way to the publication of her debut novel, Destiny Road. Melissa also posts writing tips, links, guest author interviews, and the occasional giveaway.
