Tuesday Short Story Prompt

On Tuesday’s we like to play a short story game where we give you the lead and you finish.  We normally play this on Twitter where you have 140 characters to finish up the story, but we also know that many of our friends and fans are long winded and therefore, need some space.

Are you ready?

Here we go!

Finish me:

I knew it before I even opened the box, but as I lifted the lid my heart beat faster in anticipation.  There it was:

It’s Funday Friday!


So if you don’t know by now from our Twitter (@pennamepublish), Fifteen Weekends is titled for the fifteen weekends that fall in between Memorial Day and Labor Day (if you’re in the USA), or just known as SUMMER everywhere else.

Fire up the grill, open the pool, and lets get ready to enjoy some sunshine!

We have big plans for our summer involving some travel, putting out some new books, and of course, writing.

What about you?  Share your big summer plans with us, we’d love to hear what you’re up to!

FYI: Normal blogging commences on Monday.  Sorry for the break, the launch took most of our attention away from this little bloggie blog but it will not be neglected again.


The Cryptic Release

We’ve been told frequently during this process that our tweets about Fifteen Weekends by Christy Pastore are cryptic and mysterious.  We apologize for being so secretive with what we were willing to give away but we figure we might as well keep up the trend!

In honor of Fifteen Weekends and its release today, we are going to continue playing games with you.  Fun games though, we promise!

Fill out the game in the pdf link below, send a pdf or photo of the completed puzzle to or tag us with #fifteenweekends on instagram and then visit our homepage at to enter our Rafflecoptor giveaway!
