Variety is the Spice of Life by Morgan Mandel

Anyone who has seen my writing can tell I love variety. I don't stick to  one genre, and have been known to combine them at times.

When Dani Greer asked for volunteers in our BBT Cafe egroup to contribute to a short story collection, I jumped in. Since I believe in following where inspiration strikes, it's not surprising my stories for The Corner Cafe: A Tasty Collection of Short Stories are different than what I wrote before.

What Nice Blessings stars a young adult who undergoes a life changing event. The Closing of the Corner Cafe features a couple who venture into the cafe business.

Eighteen stories are included. The good thing about so many is if you don't like one, you can always try another. We offer something for almost every taste.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Christine Verstraete, another of our Acme Author Babes, who has contributed a short story called Perfect Timing, which includes a dog. Read her story to find out how the dog got inside the cafe. Was the door open?

Find The Corner Cafe: A Tasty Collection of Short Stories at
on Kindle for 99 cents. Or, if you're patient, mark your calendars for the two free days, Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10.

Morgan Mandel writes mysteries, romances and thrillers, also short stories, one including a young adult.

Both you and Christine wrote great stories.

Today, I had to go into the Apple store to get tech help for my iPad. The tech guy backed up what he could and updated the iOS which was way old. Two things that did not get reloaded was Amazon and Kindle. I thought, well, there go my books, included my own book and The Corner Cafe. But they both reappeared. YAY.

It was such a pleasure to work with everyone on the is book and share the pages with so many different writers. What a fun project.

Helen, so glad you were able to save your book and The Corner Cafe.

Yes, it's a lot of fun teaming up on such a great project for everyone's benefit.

Helen, I'm also happy to hear you got everything back again. I have to update my iPhone and am very afraid to do so.

Everyone did a great job on this. I'm reading slowly, but getting there. This has been interesting as it shows the difference it can make in a book launch. We all need to do this for each others' new offerings.
