Story for Christmas

Story on Facebook

There was an advertisement on my Facebook page for a short story. Generally, I don't bother looking at the "sponsored" items, usually I am not interested but this was for a story and a free story at that! Even more, it was a Christmas story AND it had made someone cry!

So I read it

It was a short story, not flash fiction but nevertheless a short story about a little boy of 10 years old, called Oscar Oliver, whose Mum was not there for Christmas and whose absence had made a giant hole in his life.

Well Written

Because it was free to read, I was prepared for poor writing, spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes etc., but NO! It was a well crafted story and a joy to read. It started out sad but it ended joyfully and that's all I will say because if you want any more - read it yourself! http://mark-haysom.co.uk/theblog/

(They are not my Christmas memories but I think Oscar Oliver's Christmas memories deserve a place here.)

MegL I started reading it. So far it is good. I need to have time to finish it so I bookmarked it for later.

Sounds interesting I'll try to find time to read it. My life is very full right now.

I wonder why they want to pay for people to read the short story. I wonder who pays for it.

That's an interesting and unexpected thing to find in a Facebook ad!

I imagine the author paid for the ad, after all, he got several people reading it though me. Maybe he will get some new people on his email lost or maybe he gets better ads if he gets more views?
