One-Sentence Stories. . .

Anthologies of Stories Told in a Single Sentence

YOU too can construct your own book of one-sentence stories! Will you dare to reject Teacher’s advice about a run-on sentence? Can you fine-tune your stories to stay between 200 and 2000 words?… AND tell a story. Try it! And surprise yourself! You’ll return to the real world relaxed, energized, inspired, and ready to move ahead.

Have you considered writing and publishing a book of your own single-sentence tales? I have, and that is why I published VAL’s One-Sentence Stories.

Write away, you who have become addicted to word-doodled stories complete in a single sentence. When you have a total of stories adding up to 35,000 to 60,000 words, contact MUDDY PUDDLE PRESS (muddypuddle@live.com) to discuss publishing YOUR OWN BOOK. Be prepared for the fun of seeing your work in your very own prestigious book. Since you will be receiving all royalties on YOUR OWN BOOK, a nominal editing, formatting, and cover fee may be required.
