"VALENTINE GIMMICK" BY PATSY COLLINS

Here’s a lovely Valentine’s story, "Valentine Gimmick", by British writer Patsy Collins, published in “Ireland’s Own” magazine (a market I must try, although they say they are inundated with submissions!). 

Patsy has written four novels, four short story collections, and over 500 of her short stories have been accepted for publication. Several of her short stories can be downloaded from Alfiedog.com.

CHINESE NEW YEAR IN BAHA MAR!

It’s Chinese New Year for the huge, luxury Baha Mar Resort, owned by Hong Kong based conglomerate Chow Tai Fook Enterprises!

Baha Mar is a $4.2 billion, 1,000 acre development on half a mile of beachfront in Cable Beach, Nassau, Bahamas. Little did Erskine and I know when we leased a small apartment in Cable Beach some years ago that we would be neighbours of this exotic and glamorous resort!

Baha Mar boasts three hotel brands - Grand Hyatt, SLS Hotels and Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, with a total of 2,300 rooms.

It consists of a 100,000 square foot casino (the largest in the Caribbean), overlooking the ocean. There are also forty-two restaurants and lounges, thirty luxury retailers, an eighteen hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and Golf Club, and eleven swimming pools. 

When Baha Mar first opened, Erskine and I would park free of charge outside in one of the expansive car parks and stroll through the resort to have coffee in Starbucks. However, now all of the car parks have signs, stating $10 parking. If we pay that for parking, it makes it a very expensive cup of coffee!

GET ROMANTIC!




With Valentine’s Day coming up, why not try a little romance?! “Sunbeams from the Heart – A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories” made Amazon's top 100 paid best-sellers' list in the Literature & Fiction/Short stories category and was next to Stephen King’s “Hearts in Atlantis” in Amazon's Best Sellers in Literary Short Stories at #69, with “Hearts in Atlantis” at #67! And one month later Sunbeams from the Heart again made the top 100 paid bestsellers' list in the Literature & Fiction/Short Stories category, this time alongside Agatha Christie's “Miss Marple - The Complete Short Stories”. Sunbeams from the Heart was #44 and “Miss Marple” was #45.

Love themes in “Sunbeams from the Heart – A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories” tell of nostalgia, bright new beginnings, homecoming, second chances, and the unexpected.

My romantic short stories feature a man and a woman who meet in quite ordinary or sometimes unexpected circumstances. I like to bring two people together, who had no idea they might end up with each other. Of course, in most cases there is a stumbling block to their future happiness. True love does not always come easy!

One reviewer from the U.S. wrote: “What a pleasure to come across twelve wholesome and romantic short stories as found in Sunbeams From The Heart, by Fay Knowles. While each story is unique, all share that one common thread we humans yearn for: LOVE. Page after page, Knowles artfully describes native landscapes, to the point the reader can almost inhale the scent of flowers. One can’t help but smile while Knowles steers the reader and characters along that slightly bumpy path of love. Valentine or not, Sunbeams From The Heart is indeed a delightful read.”

And from a reviewer in New Zealand: “A delightful collection of romantic stories, ideal for holiday reading or any time you want your heart warmed. So good to find a collection of stories that end on a satisfying note.”

Try a little romance. You might like it!

“Sunbeams from the Heart – A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories” is available from Amazon as an e-book and in paperback (regular and large print). Or order the paperback through your local book store.
