A collection of 100 flash fiction tales, all stories are inspired by songs on YouTube, each story being 100 words or fewer. Inspiring, thought-provoking and often witty, 100 RPM caters for all musical and storytelling tastes. And, we're especially excited that there's an introduction by Nik Kershaw.

All money earned from sales will go to the charity One in Four (a registered charity which provides support and resources to people who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual violence). Every penny raised will make a difference to lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go buy this, it's fabulous! 31 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because an author whose novels I love compiled it and it's raising money for a great charity. If I'm completely honest I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy it as I'm not really a huge fan of short stories but this book may just have converted me because it is simply fabulous. The stories are all brilliant and even though they are all under one hundred words they have such power. I actually cried over two of them and nodded my head in recognition of the emotion in others. I love how the stories are all inspired by songs and I now have many of these songs swirling around my head. Some of these stories will stay with me for a very long time, they've really got under my skin in a way that a short stories never have for me before.

This book is one I will definitely read more than once and I'll be recommending it to everyone I know. Go buy it; you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read..... 2 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great read. I initially bought it because my good friend Sal Page has two flash fictions included and all proceeds go to charity. The stories are so good that I'm listening on YouTube to the songs that have provided the inspiration. Thanks to the authors for introducing me to musicians I've never heard of and to the authors that have been inspired by the songs I do know. For a small price for a good cause and amazing stories of 100 words or less everyone should have this on their kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 4 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I ate up this collection. It contains many powerful examples of the ways in which flash fiction can cut, as swiftly as the best poetry, to the bone - or move, and linger. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you were ever inspired by a song... 2 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...buy this collection! A collection of short stories [all less then one hundred words...perfect for the morning communte!] inspired by songs from You Tube. The stories are thoughtful, inspiring, quirky, funny and original. There's a You Tube video that includes all of the songs used by each author as their inspiration/starting point, so you can listen along while reading! If you love music and words I would recommend this collection! All proceeds go to charity One in Four and there's a foreword by Nik Kershaw. Brilliant stuff - you will find something in this collection that will touch your life and, through your purchase, you will help to change the lives of others. Buy it!
