A Black Cappuccino and a Hot Punani by David Heulfryn

I’ve had this story brewing for some time (I hope you like the pun), and I am now happy with it. I think my problem was how to inject some sex into the story without it feeling forced. Well, in the end, I decided not to inject sex into the story as it just doesn’t fit.

This short story is about the beginning of a relationship, how two young men meet by chance. I always intended this to be a one-off, and although it lends itself to many possibilities, I won’t be expanding on it. What happened next will be left to your imagination. I was interested in exploring how a relationship begins, and that’s why there is no sex in this story.

I hope you like it, even if it won’t get you off.

When I Was … Eight by David Heulfryn

When two young friends have a sleepover Robbie discovers something unusual. He’s confused, and his friend’s reaction really upsets him. When Jack’s mother explains what happened, he doesn’t quite understand, but the two boys remain friends.

I wanted this short series to chart the development and growth of two friends throughout their lives. This first part is a sweet story about two innocent eight-year-olds.

Not All Presents Are Planned by David Heulfryn

This is one of my longer short stories which took the inspiration from a holiday I took to The Netherlands. We had a gorgeous pool which we generally used in the late afternoons. It was a wonderful holiday. This story is about two school friends who are on holiday and when they are left alone one day, their relationship moves to the next level.

I enjoyed editing this one, as it is not your usual stroke story but takes it time to get to the intimate parts and explores their relationship.

Anyone Want a Sneak Peak?

I’ve been working on my Cockaigne Chronicles novel recently and am almost ready to release it on the unsuspecting public. It will be available on Kindle, but I would really like some volunteers to take a read first and highlight any glaring (or not so glaring errors). I’m reading a book at the moment where the author has confused names, and it’s irritating, especially if you have paid for it. I’ve proofread it myself, spell checked, and grammar checked, but small errors might have crept through.

I’m looking for some people to proofread it for me, so if you would like an advanced copy, please email me (stories at screeve dot org) stating if you want it a mobi, epub for pdf version, and I’ll send you a copy.

Feel free to highlight any errors or passages that aren’t clear but also let me have your general comments.

This is my first novel that I’ve finished. I really enjoyed writing it and delving deeper into a story. Writing a novel is so different than writing a short story or even a multipart series.

How A Bottom Gets To The Top by David Heulfryn

This picture is a mock-up of an imaginary magazine I created to accompany the story I wrote. It is written in the form of a magazine article by a journalist interviewing a popular porn star. It was an experiment into a different form of writing. I actually think it is alright.

Porn seems to be part of our everyday lives these days. It is easily available and can be viewed anywhere on our smart devices. I am interested in the people behind the porn and am intrigued about how and why they do it. Everyone will have different reasons. I find people fascinating and listening to them talk and share their stories can help with creating characters and stories. Porn actors are just as interesting and I would love to ‘interview’ one in person to get their story.

Get The Feeling by David Heulfryn

This story came about after I watched a news item about a mirror-touch synaesthete. I find things like this fascinating how some people can have a different experience of reality. For those who don’t know, mirror-touch synaesthete is someone that feels a touch when they aren’t being touched. It’s a condition where the senses get mixed up, for example, some people hear colours.

Naturally, my twisted and oversexed mind conjures up a scenario. I hope you enjoy it. I certainly liked reading it again.

Eyjafjallajökull by David Heulfryn

Whatever you do, don’t ask me to pronounce it. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull had a major effect on people’s lives, worldwide. All air traffic was immediately grounded due to safety fears, which meant that a lot of people were in the wrong place.

This story is loosely based on what happened to someone at my workplace. We had a visitor from our head office in Stockholm and he was due to fly back the day after everything was grounded. He ended up staying with somewhat from work, which stimulated my imagination and hence this story.

Interestingly, people were very helpful and this chap caught a train to Dover and managed to find someone who was heading back to Scandinavia and they gave him a lift.
