Being a member of the Readers Group comes with proper bennies, baby! And this short story is one of them. This is the first short story I’ve written in the Bailey Best series. It’s middle grade fiction that even adults can enjoy. Here’s the blurb…

Being a kid isn’t as great as everybody says. Always having to ask for every single thing and all too often hearing…

No, not right now.

No, maybe later.

No, it’s not good for you.

No, it costs too much.

No, we don’t have time.

or maybe just…

No! And stop asking!

Well, Bailey Best wakes up one morning and gets buried under an avalanche of No’s. And she decides there is only one way to fix it—to personally commit to delivering one whole day of Yes’s. The Day of Yes!

But, it doesn’t turn out quite like she expected. Does it ever?

The Day of Yes! is a 9600 word short story.
