Thanks to everybody who submitted their lovely stories and poems for January; I’ve had a huge response, and I had a great time reading them all.  This month, being a fan of the paranormal, my favourite was the story with a most original plot, The Art of Spirit Capture, by Geoff Le Pard, alias TanGental.

Geoff, well done!  Here’s your laurel to share on your blog.  I’ll be sharing your story in my February newsletter, on my Facebook and Twitter sites, and in the anthology that I’ll publish at the end of the year.


Please take a moment to check out the other 19 delightful poems and stories below that were submitted this month.
