The Blurb –

This collection comprises five volumes of fifty stories written from a variety of prompts and published on Morgen’s blog:, where you can still read the list of prompts – a story a day for nearly a year.

In this book there are stories of revenge, luck and misfortune, sharp edges, sticky red hands, no faded circle of skin, family heirlooms, Chelsea buns, and alien hums.

We meet a generous aunt, men in uniform, a fan of Hawaiian shirts, untidy teenagers, characters looking to improve themselves, a young girl with wings, a modern-day Cleopatra, and a curious fortune teller.

These stories all go to show what can be done with a prompt, a few hours, and a colourful imagination.

Today is my stop on The Fifty 5pm Fictions Collection blog tour. Many thanks to Sarah Hardy BOTBS Publicity for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is the second collection of Morgen’s work that I have read, the first being  A Story A Day May Collection  This one is equally as good as the first one I read.

This book continues in the same theme, with each written piece being inspired by a daily prompt.  The stories cover such a wide range of topics and the collection really showcases what a good writer Morgen Bailey is.
