Twisted Valentine

A twisted slice of Valentine fiction for you here - I submitted a story to Lily Childs' February Femmes Fatales, and happily had it accepted! There are some corking stories going up right throughout this month, so plenty to keep you occupied. But what was even better than just being accepted was having Whispering Sweet Nothings published today! (Apologies to all the people I called it The Whispering Heart to, that was its original title and I forgot I'd changed it!)

Don't ask where the idea came from as I can't actually remember, I think I just took the phrase 'you captured my heart' a little too literally. That's how I've gotten many an idea - does everyone remember the linguistic nightmare of Spell Check? Many thanks to Tony Noland for beta-reading Whispering Sweet Nothings for me.

Hope you enjoy it...

I've been thinking about your story since reading it yesterday. The image you create of the jars is gruesomely poetic, I think.
