About the Book
A Drabble of Passion…Darkly
A “drabble” is a 100-word fiction story. It has to be exactly 100 words. No more. No less.
Publisher/Editors Roy C. Booth and Jorge Salgado-Reyes have compiled an anthology of speculative fiction drabbles based around the theme of Valentine’s Day.
My contribution to this drabble anthology is called A Violent Passion.
A Violent Passion explores the dark side of desire. The speaker is longing for something and it sounds very romantic at first, but we eventually realize how unhealthy this longing is…
Drabbles are addictive and fun to read. You’ll fly through these little micro-stories in no time. There are many different authors and genres represented here. You’ll find sci-fi, fantasy, and even horror, but all of the stories are themed around Valentines Day.
Enjoy the dark-valentine drabbleness!
