The Ides of March #juliuscaesar #flashfiction #idesofmarch


A day of reference in the Roman calendar like the Kalends or the Nones except in this case a day where one man is plagued by prophecy…

“What does a mere mortal know about life or death?” Julius grimaces

“He will believe he is safe with us. Let’s make his last moments memorable.”  The best of the ’44 is poured.

Friday Flash Fiction (hosted each week by the G-Man) is a fun and challenging way to put your skill to the test by writing a story in 55 words. Happy Ides of March to one and all.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  3. Ouch… He didn’t know he had to take care. He wouldn’t have stood a chance anyway and, from what I’ve read about him, he was as blood thirsty as they all were in those days.
    Great 55!

  4. ARGH! So true! Giving fans a deal usually doesn’t work. You must cucllaate how many readers you have to ADD to make up for the money you lose with the lower price. At the Gorilla price point, you are losing 18 cents per copy between $2.95 and $2.50.On 20,000 per issue sales, at 1 issue per month, that’s $43,200 PER YEAR PER BOOK.Are you going to sell enough comics based on the lower price point alone to make up that $43,200?No. Consider the shortfall over a line of 8 books with an average monthly sale of 20,000. $345,600. OW.I wish I knew then what I know now! LOL!
