I’m so pleased I’ve been asked to be part of this blog tour to celebrate the six month anniversary of the release of Coffee Break Companion by S.L.Grigg. Beautifully written collection of short stories and poems is now available on Amazon for limited time for the week of 28th August to 3rd September 2018 for only 99p.
Grab that cup of coffee (or tea if you prefer), maybe add a splash of something stronger, settle down and enjoy your break with this gripping collection of flash fiction and poetry that will send shivers down your spine. With an added bonus of a longer story at the end that will fill your lunch break. What are you waiting for? Dive in! Everything from a discovery in an Ice Cavern, to a tornado. Mermaids, and Dragons. Mystery and Horror. This collection of flash fiction and poetry has something to capture anyone’s imagination, with a final chilling thriller that will leave you gasping for air.
Perfect book for when you can steal only few minutes to yourself and want to make the most of it. Collection of short stories so powerful and thought provoking alternated with short poems that play on your feelings even more. So many stories covered so many different subjects, some quite dark but those were my favourites. Final thriller following up on one of the stories wrapped the book up nicely. I’ve only read handful of short stories before as I always preferred longer books that grabbed my attention easier but this book changed my opinion. If they are written well, they can sometimes give you more than full sized novel and that’s what S.L. Grigg exactly managed to do. This book made me more interested in short stories and will read a lot more of them in the future.
About S.L. Grigg
This is the first published book by S.L. Grigg having previously written a popular blog on mental health, and having articles published by Mind, the mental health charity, and NHS England. Working for NHS England from a home in Bromsgrove, England, S.L Grigg lives with a partner and two adult children. S.L Grigg has studied everything from Science and Law, to Journalism and Pilates but writing has always been the greatest passion in her life.
Sharon Grigg, who writes under the pen name S.L Grigg, made it her new year’s resolution to publish her book ‘Coffee Break Companion’ during 2018. After bouncing back from mental health problems (BPD), following the death of her husband from a brain tumour in 2009, Sharon was struck down with kidney and other health problems, believed to be linked to having the Essure sterilisation device she had implanted back in 2008. In September 2017 she underwent major surgery to have a non-functioning hydronephrotic kidney removed at the same time as a full hysterectomy to remove the essure device.
Just two months after setting her goal Sharon launched the collection of dark, short stories and poetry on Amazon. Many of the stories were written during Sharon’s battle with mental health.
41-year-old mother of two, Sharon says “For me publishing was never about money or fame. I just wanted to be able to hold a copy of my book and say, ‘I wrote this’ and now I can.”
How motivational and dream come true having a book published after so many fights and obstacles. Just reading about Sharon’s life made me believe that maybe I can do it one day too. If you want to follow S.L.Grigg’s journey and work, you can do so on Facebook or her WordPress blog.
