TBM-1910.31 – Bead by Bead, and Other Stories

Bead by Bead


#Audio. #flashfic #horrordailies Four stories for the season, read by the Bathtub Mermaid and Friends


Bridal gowns had always been Mama Louise’s specialty. She limited her commissions to two a year and quoted a five-month turnaround. It was much longer than it took to have a custom gown from one of the bridal shops on Main Street, but her customers never objected. They knew that a dress from a store was just a dress, while a creation sewn by Louise would be a family heirloom.

  1. A wonderful collection. I’ve always been taken (so to speak) by Chalk. Your reading of Bead By Bead turned out beautifully. And the others, well… not all eerie stories need to be horrific. Some are subtle and hypnotic.
