When Characters and Creators Collide…

‘Look at this!’ Connor brandishes the bright and colourful cover of the new Six Sentence Stories magazine. ‘You’re on the cover, Ms Hall. A first for you.’

Cynthia stretches out an elegantly manicured hand and takes the proffered copy from him. She looks at me over her new reading glasses. ‘Such a nice photo of you, too.’

‘I’m surprised it’s not in sepia, it’s that old,’ interjects Gary with a grin, immediately receiving an elbow in the ribs from Gina.

‘Don’t upset her Gary,’ Gina mutters. ‘Don’t you want to be in a story again?’ Gina flashes a smile at me.

Cynthia brushes her hand over the glossy cover. ‘Oh look, there’s a voucher for that little deli shop, Sam’s. It was very pleasant. Apart from that rather brassy woman coming on to you, Connor.’

‘You mean, Beryl?’ Connor’s eyes twinkle.

Gina prods Gary’s leg. ‘You see, they’ve both had an outing, and it wasn’t even in one of Ms Hall’s stories.’

‘What a charming man Tom is,’ Cynthia purrs. ‘So creative! We met him briefly at Ms Hall’s book launch.’ She runs a thoughtful finger over Tom’s picture on the magazine cover. ‘Nice eyes. I don’t suppose I should blame him for Beryl’s behaviour.’

‘I met another excellent chap there too,’ Connor takes a long pull from the glass of whisky which has mysteriously appeared in his hand. ‘Chris Nelson, short story author and a fellow poet. No wonder we hit it off.’ He looks around the room. ‘And you know what, he’s written a really good review of Our Book!’ Connor beams and raises his glass to me.

  1. I really like this little crossover universe, Chris! I’ve left a review of Chris’ review, popped through the other links, and now I’m back here!
    Beryl’s adamant everything was fine between her and Cynthia, but couldn’t say much as she had to get her hair ‘waved'(?)! And I’m sure Gina will appear somewhere soon, Chris, won’t she? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Oh, I love this, Chris, and it’s like visiting old friends for a catch up! It’s no wonder that they are clammering to get into your next book. I’m sure, as time passes, they’ll all make a play for the lead role too.
    Thanks for the plug too, it’s much appreciated.
