Category Archives: My Books

It started with a hand printed book of junior high school love poetry. I went on to create an award-winning children’s activity book without even trying. So I decided it was time to write and publish MORE books. Here they are. ENJOY and thank you for BUYING them, I only publish that which I would buy myself!

Welcoming the New Addition to the Family

  Pop the cork on the champagne!

Smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em!

We are celebrating the release of my latest book!!

 This book has been a long time coming.  For years I have been writing 99-word stories for the flash fiction challenges on the blog of Charli Mills. I received supportive feedback, and every now and then, I would write some stories that I never showed to anyone. Then, one day my dad said he would love to read them. As he doesn’t monkey around (his words) with the internet, I would have to format the stories to send him. The resulting effort is this book filled with 75 of my 99-word stories.

 There is a paperback edition as well as a Kindle book. They are available from Amazon. 

You Can Find My Books Here

 The beauty of 99-word stories is that you’ll still have time to read a story or two even if you are short on time! 

Check out the 99-word flash fiction challenges hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.

To those who write beautifully, thank you for inspiring me to write. To those who enjoy reading, thank you for encouraging me to write.

Thank you for your support to those who choose to read and review my book (s).  

Love, Annette Rochelle Aben
