    ”That wasn’t funny,” hissed Bastet from the branch. Anubis wagged his tail and barked up at her, ”Then come down and play!”

    “She said she was 16,” he moaned as the handcuffs clamped shut around his wrists. She hid a smile and turned away.
There are a few pieces on my blog, too, if you are interested in reading those. They are under the Flash Fiction category.

    M. Howalt, thank you for that story on EDF today. I’m sorry not everyone appreciated it as it should have been, but that is the nature of the EDF venue. Democratic would be a kind description.

    I look forward to reading your future stories. If “Treasure” is any indication, your fans are in for a treat of a career.

      Thank you so much! – For this and for your comment on EDF. As it’s my first time getting anything published there (or anywhere that big), I really appraciate the feedback. I am very happy with the reception there. Even the not-so-appreciative comments were well-argued and kind, I think.
      Thank you again. Comments like yours really make my day!

    The second twitter fiction piece is great! I love it. It says it all without using any more words than absolutely necessary to convey the point of the story. These are the best kind of stories, those that say it all in as few words as possible. Less is often indeed more, as the saying goes. Excellent work!

      Thank you very much! :) I was hoping that it would get the point across. And thank you for visiting and commenting! :)
