THAT SONG - this week's one hundred word story


THAT  SONG

That song has made him millions over the years. Wonder what his fans would say if they knew I wrote it?
The summer of ’67, it was, when he was too spaced-out to sit up, let alone write a tune. He found it one day and played it, the band loved it, and it took off. Did he give me the credit? Not bloody likely!
He’s had four different wives since then, all young and thin.

The old goat didn’t even recognise me this morning, pushing the Hoover round the studio.
He’ll remember me tomorrow – I’ll make sure of that.

Thanks as ever to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers on her blog  https://rochellewisoff.com/  and for taking the photo prompt this week. 
                                 ..................................
And I have exciting news to share with you - my next book will be out on Amazon next week! 
Helter-Skelter is set in the first half of the 20th century, so it just qualifies as an historical novel, and is the story of Albie's search for his gypsy father after his mother abandons him at the tender age of twelve. 
                        ............................
For those of you who read my first book, A Volcanic Race, and are eagerly anticipating the sequel, I have been working on Wolf Pack at the same time as completing Helter-Skelter. 
For those of you who didn't buy AVR because you 'don't read fantasy', perhaps I can change your minds?The book is definitely NOT sci-fi, and even people who only bought it out of friendship have enjoyed reading it!

    1. Maybe I will write one - or shall I just leave it to your imagination? What would you do in her place?

    1. Yep. He'd be wise to look at his cleaning staff a bit more closely.

  11. Dear Liz,

    I wonder if revenge will be as sweet as she thinks.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    PS I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to Volcanic Race. All the best with this on in the mean time.

  12. It's sad when people don't get the credit they deserve...
    Now she's gonna make sure the world knows the reality. Proving ownership is tough. Hope she succeeds!
    Great story, Liz!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  14. I just wonder what type of revenge she has in place for him... somehow I wonder it involves using the Hoover.

  15. Oooo...this sounds ominous.
