Those of you who have been following us over the past year or more will know that two of our authors, Jaime & Raechel Faulkner, specialize in writing short stories (as well as poetry).
In fact, while some of their short stories are somewhat short (e.g. 2,500+ words), some are really short – like a mere 500 words each.
And that got us to thinking about how people’s reading habits have changed over recent years.
In today’s hectic world, it’s often a case of get up, get the kids ready for school, stuff down a hastily-heated-up breakfast, go to work, maybe get a lunch break if you’re lucky, go home, see to the kids, prepare and eat dinner, do the dishes (or load up the dishwasher), and by the time you’ve done all of that, you’re too tired to do anything other than collapse in front of the TV.
So if you love reading, what can you do about it?
Well, short stories is certainly one answer, and some of the ones Jaime & Raechel write can be read over a cup of coffee – hence the name, Coffee Break Tales, which is not only the name we gave to their Twisted Flash Fiction and Twisted Short Stories, but also a brand new website that we launched a few days ago.
So, we invite you to check out CoffeeBreakTales.com, where you’ll find books in lots of different genres, including romance, short stories, poetry, fantasy, horror, erotica, and more.
While the site does focus on fiction, we have also included any new magazines we discover, as well as some of the best-selling US newspapers.
More importantly, we’ve also gone the extra distance for you by categorizing each book in terms of how long it might take you to read it. So, if you’re looking for books that will only take you 15 minutes, simply click on the 15 Minutes link in the sidebar and see what we’ve found for you.
The site is updated daily, assuming we find new books that meet our criteria, so you’ll always find something new to whet your appetite.
If you want to know more about how to make best use of the site, then please read the About Coffee Break Tales page.
And so you don’t have to keep visiting the site to see if there’s anything new, you can sign up for the Coffee Break Tales newsletter and we’ll email you once a day with a list of any new books we’ve found.
If you love reading but you never seem to have the time to indulge your passion, Coffee Break Tales is exactly what you’ve been waiting for.
