It’s Coming…


After years of silence and hiatus, Lisa and I are thrilled to be returning to Fiction Fridays!

*Woot woot!*

I know I can safely speak for her when I say that writing our pieces of flash fiction has always been such a fun side project for the two of us, a great way to stretch those writing muscles and to jump into stories or ideas that perhaps we were afraid to expand upon until we actually wrote them down – and loved them!

We are starting slow, just to make sure we can really give it the care it needs as we get back into the swing of things. You well get one story from each of us (2 stories total) a month for the time being. My first will post on January 12th. Lisa’s will post January 26.

Join us! Maybe you have a hankering to try your hand at something short and creative. Share it with us!

We can’t wait to see what awesome, creative things we can explore together! 🙂

So Where’ve They Been Anyway?

Hey fellow Hollow Tree enthusiasts!

I’m seriously sorry for taking so long to get this post up. It was supposed to be up late last week, but as with most things, life did quite the job of distracting me.

My partner in crime, Lisa, is in the middle of a cross-state-lines move which means that she’s out of commission on the writing front, and while I temporarily considered running this bad boy on my own (for a good ten minutes!), I know I don’t have it in me to write a free short story every week! Sorry guys! I’m on a diet, and the amount of cookies that would require would be counter productive!

So Hollow Tree is going on a temporary (very temporary) hiatus. Don’t alarm yourselves. We’ll be back with more great freebies soon. In the meantime, feel free to look back at any you’ve missed and leave us little nuggets of gold in the form of feedback. We LOVE feedback around here and we LOVE hearing from you.

I’m also opening up this post for ideas! If you guys have interesting requests, ideas, things you’d like to see (not just on Hollow Tree, but in the publishing world in general), share it with us! I’ll be around to answer comments and hang out.

We hope to hear from you. And we’ll be back soon.

A New Year, A New Us

So, loyal readers, as you can see, Hollow Tree has undergone some changes — just as we promised.

Lisa and I put some thought into it and we realized that though we loved our original purpose for Hollow Tree, real life can often put a damper on the best laid plans.

But fear not! We are nowhere near done with this place. Instead, we’ve decided to tweak its purpose, just enough to keep it interesting, but not too much to make it something altogether new.

Check out our new mission statement and join us on a new, exciting journey as we take on something we’ve never done before…

Lisa and Isabelle have been writing partners for years, playing sounding board and cheerleader for each other.  Their tastes are similar while their styles are unquestionably different.  One thing they’re both passionate about, though, is YA Fantasy and paranormal.

This blog is a writing challenge for us, and a treasure of free reads for you.  Sometimes book reviews and interviews will be thrown in as well, but the main focus will be on sharing one short story per week, either by Lisa or Isabelle.

Our intent is to find and share new worlds, just a step beyond our own.  To follow Alice down the rabbit hole, take the second star to the right and step through that dresser drawer… only we’ve been all those places before.  And there are many, many more waiting to be found if we know where to look.  It’s those little entrances that we seek out here, a glassy pond, a locked door, a hollow tree…
