Surprise Me This is a flash fiction contest. Write a story that has a surprise ending. Since it is flash, the word count must be between 200 and 600 words. The ending can be funny, sad, shocking, etc. But the reader has to be surprised.
Cool writing. I am searching out writing I want to read. I have only a few to go before I get to 25, then I will have my quota of reviews for the day. :D
I hope you do well if you write a whole novel and try to publish.
Nice blending of ancient myth with a modern tale of vampires! I have to wonder why Artemis would choose George to be the one to take her virginity after all those years (thousands) of celibacy. She would be more fascinating to me if she merely teased George and kept her self even more aloof, interested in George only as prey.
But that's just me. Your story works well as written and was quite a fun read! I'm a fan, now!

Hi, Dav. My best work, I think, is in the novel Turncoat, which isn't yet finished. It's not horror. I do write it, sometimes, and The House in the Woods (from the book you looked through) came in second in a site contest.
This was a great read! I thought the part with the ghost encounter had the right amount of detail to convey the fear he was experiencing - it was very believable.
I thought the house becoming dusty and old was a nice touch to set the scene.
I loved it!
