Sweet Angela
AUTHOR
Colin Woodward
DESCRIPTION
Sweet Angela is a story about regret, spending too much time in the past, and the hurt when you desire a love that you cannot have. [1,000 words]
READERS' REVIEWS
"This piece captures how difficult it can be to live in the present when you prefer the past. Very well written." -- Dawn Garland, Aberdeen, Angus, Scotland
"Style, elegance, originality... Beyond the story you will enjoy the way its been written." -- Luis Maria Cano, Madrid, Spain
"Interesting story. Just a couple of 'picky' things. "He watched the woman with tired and wrinkled eyes." Sounds as though the woman had tired and wrinkled eyes. Perhaps 'through' tired eyes? Also, can eyes be wrinkled? Need to catch spelling. But keep writing!" -- Mo, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

TITLE
Iridescent Imagery
AUTHOR
Colin Woodward
DESCRIPTION
Iridescent Imagery is a kaleidoscope of twisted visions as seen through the eyes of a confused drug addicted newsreader, who is on the run from the law. Or it's a sane man caught in an insane future. Or a man simply dreaming an endless dream. The reader is the one who hopefully decides what it's all about. [7,500 words, Rated R]
READERS' REVIEWS
"This reader didn't come to a firm decision, but enjoyed your story never the less. Flashbacks, the time changes and drug/madness images were all very nicely done." -- Mark Kneeland, USA
"I stumbled across this online and I believe that you are the same Colin Woodward that used to be my pen friend and I thought I would get in touch." -- Amy (Fowler) Bate, St. Peters, Missouri, USA/UK

"What a surprising finish! Congrats on keeping Kate's secret until the last paragraph." -- Pravin Jeyaraj, Sutton, Surrey, UK
"Really poetic and mysterious. I read this in the dark and got really spooked! Brilliant!" -- Dawn Wood, London, UK
"Wicked! Extremely wicked! I loved it... Do you have more?" -- Bridget Faith, USA
"Very intriguing. You left the best for last - a real surprise. You have a talent. Have you ever thought of writing mystery novels?" -- Mary, Brantford, Ontario, Canada
"I thought that it was a good piece, and I was completely suprised at the ending. The author was very discriptive throughout the whole story, which helps the reader envision it better." -- Jessie Thompson, Bloomington/Normal, Illinois, USA
"Very interesting and descriptive story." -- Scott, Australia
"Not my genre, but I found it very interesting, had to read to the end to find out the secret.  Very clever." -- Kate, Florida, USA
"Similar to Jeffery Hatchers play Three Viewings.  Good work!" -- Julia, Texas, USA
"I really liked the unusual twist at the end. Great story!" -- Paula S, Hamilton, Scotland
"I thought that it was going to be a sweet ending, but it turned out totally opposite.  I definitely was suprised and I don't think I would read this around Christmas time!! Other than that I thought it was pretty good." -- Kristen, Herscher, Illinois, USA
"Loved the ending! Had a great punch. Good descriptions." -- Mary Newlands, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
"Nice one! but it will be much better if you make it much simple to read" -- Akira NJ, Malaysia
