Summer 2019 Issue

Editor’s Note:

Summer is here. It’s the season for family picnics, time at the pool, and hundreds of other fun-filled activities. Before your schedule gets too full, pencil in some time to read and maybe even fall in love … just like the characters in our latest issue.

You’ll visit Oahu with Featured Author Melody Carlson, as well as spend an evening on the Santa Monica pier and enjoy the rides at the county fair with our Staff Features.

That’s just the beginning of your flash fiction journey. We have ten other great stories lined up that will leave you ready to pack your bags.

So, sit back, relax, and let our stories take you to sites far and wide as you put a lil’ Spark in your day!

And don’t forget to check out all our authors via their websites or social media links and let them know how much you enjoyed their stories.
