I’m so excited; Friday 18th July will see my new ‘coffee break’ short story hit the Amazon website thanks to Solstice Publishing. As most of you are probably aware I usually write fantasy novels but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to write in other genres. Of course I could always use a pseudonym (pen name) but I thought that because this is only a short story it wouldn’t upset my readers.
The reason why I brought out this story is one of two things. Firstly, I really wanted to show everyone that I am not a one trick pony. You see, authors don’t always get the chance to break away from what becomes their normal routine of writing and, I didn’t want to get stuck into the habit of worrying about what everyone else thinks.
Secondly, I find that most of us who enjoy reading don’t always have the time to read a full blown novel. However, some would still like to read something a bit more entertaining than what you might find in a weekly magazine.
Most of us haven’t the time to get absorbed into a good story whilst we have a break and a well earned cup of coffee. I’m exactly the same. When I’m at work, I look for something to do with my spare time so I usually scroll down Facebook’s newsfeed or jump onto Twitter just to idle away the minutes. Doing this doesn’t always satisfy my brain and I feel that I suffer from lacklustre; I clearly need something a little more engaging to occupy my mind.
This is when I came up with the bright idea of a light-hearted romance that would lift a reader’s spirits and hopefully amuse them too. I decided The Witching Hour would make an enjoyable 10 minute read and also make those precious minutes count.
It’s fun, it’s amusing and most of all its entertaining. If you find you have 10 minutes to spare and you would like to read a story with a happy ending then try The Witching Hour and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
The Witching Hour by Lynette E. Creswell

Thank you Rose, I really hope you enjoy it because it’s very different to what I usually write but I really wanted to try something new. xxxx
Hiya i will check your story out. I write short stories for fun on my blog site andrewdavidblog.wordpress.com i think short stories are the way forward which is why i hope to have my book of short stories out on Kindle by the end of the year.
Hi Andrew, I actually think you have a good point here. There is definitely a gap in the market and I am also going to write a few more. Let me know when your book is out. I think I have read a couple of your stories via twitter? Thanks for dropping by and also for your support.
Hiya i just download your short story onto my kindle and I also downloaded the magic trilogy, which I hope to read very soon x
WOW! Andrew, thank you so much that’s truly amazing! I think you’ll find my writing very different from the short story to the novels and I look forward to hearing from you and what you think. Thanks again for your support, you’ve made my day! Lynette 🙂
Well lynette what can i say after reading the witching hour, i think the word iam look for is brilliant, but it’s so much more than that and amazingly good still don’t come close to how I feel about your short story. I really enjoyed it is what iam trying to say, you are a very good writer and i can only hope to be half as good as you. If your other books are just as good then i think jk and the Harry potter books have just been out classed, you have just got a new fan in me. Thank you x
Oh, Andrew, you certainly know how to make a woman blush. I am over the moon that you enjoyed the short story therefore I ask if you would please leave a review on Amazon. You are the first person to have read the story and for you to say such wonderful things about my writing is simply remarkable. I truly hope you feel the same way about the magic trilogy and I look forward to hearing from you again. Best wishes, Lynette 🙂
Well lynette on my kindle the last page allows me to rate the story with stars 1 to 5 so of course I rated your story 5 stars. I wish there was more stars to rate your story because I would have rated it 100 or a thousand stars, if i could i would rate your story more stars than in all the universe and beyond, i really enjoyed it that much and I look forward to reading your other books too. So once again thank you so much for your beautiful writing and I wish you all the best for the future xxx
Thank you Andrew so much, you really have made my day extra special 🙂 Oh, I’ve just noticed could you please make sure its on the UK site too as well as the US please 🙂
