Happy New Year

The Story Mint supports writers to be the best they can be.

The year is off to a great start with exciting new chapters for our existing serials and a new starter featuring Chief Inspector Karen Simonivic who has to solve a hit and run crime.  Our plans include writing retreats, an anthology and much more. It will be a great year!

A new serial starter, Waterfalls by Suraya Dewing introduces Chief Inspector Karen Simonivic. Karen is investigating a deadly hit and run accident. An elderly woman arrives at the Police Station. She smells like she hovers ‘on the edge of death’ and insists on talking to Karen. Why?
We have also recently published some really outstanding new chapters.
