About Niki Flow

♡. I sign with a heart and a dot because Love, period. Thanks for your visit. If you enjoyed my writing, you may enjoy my first book, "Elanthian Love Songs - A Bard's Tale," written under my prior pen name, Sara Michele O'Sullivan and published on Amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/Elanthian-Love-Songs-Bards-Tale-ebook/dp/B01BS8DFTK One of the songs from Elanthian Love Songs is available with music on YouTube: https://youtu.be/LRzE_fEERxw ☼ Coming Soon ☼ Twelve Tales, short stories themed for each month, will be out later this year. Sadie and Tony run a diner in Westmont, New Jersey. They met in a very unconventional way. The stories "12 Tales" are told by their customers who are as different as every month of the year. Sadie and Tony's story will begin the book, though it's not counted among the other 12. So, really, it's "A Baker's Dozen" tales. =) You can read their story now, here: "Thin Threads" https://nikiflow.wordpress.com/2015/06/24/thin-threads/

Happy Hobbit Day.


Kindspring Eowyn Challenge III

Join us on Hobbit Day us as we journey from Bag End to Rivendell on Middle Earth in our minds while tracking self-propelled forward motion made on Earth to correspond. Each day’s journey comes with notes from The Atlas of Middle Earth by Karen Fonstad as well as daily excerpts from The Journal of Samwise Gamgee. (Sam’s Journal was only recently published. It was discovered under a hay pile in the barn by his daughter, Elanor.) There is a corresponding website for each journal that will take anyone who wishes to continue the full 28 days until journey’s end. All welcome.
