Every day I head across to one of my favourite sites – The Drabble. There’s something almost magical about being whisked away to different worlds all in the space of 100 words.
It is such a great site and I’m really happy to see another one of my Drabbles published there today – Pirate Queen of the Crimson Coast @ The Drabble
This was one of the first Drabbles I wrote and it spawned both a short story and a novella. Please head across for a look if you have time. If you haven’t visited before, it’s well worth exploring the site – so many great stories.
Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

She raided the usurper’s fleet mercilessly, taking joy in each victory. Today was particularly fine.
Aisha drove her rapier through Benpassa’s skull, then swung from the burning flagship; steely eyes smoldering.
