CURRENT ASSORTMENT

ASSORTMENT 8

Assortment number 8 contains 12 candies that share a common theme. They all have something to do with family connections and miracles. These days we tend not to believe in miracles. But once in a while, it doesn’t hurt to look beyond the obvious to find some inspiration.

TIPS FOR AUTHORS

Writing stories for voice assistants is different than writing traditional short stories. Our voice apps currently use text-to-speech (machine generated) voices to narrate stories. There are limitations to this technology.

Use these tips to improve your chances of getting your story accepted by our editorial staff:

  • Keep your story short and to the point (275-word limit).
  • Avoid the use of dialogue (does not work well with machine-generated speech)
  • Keep in mind our use of virtual chocolatiers. Write from one of their perspectives or write in the third person, so that one of the chocolatiers can narrate your story.
  • Listen to previous assortments on any Alexa-enabled device, or listen via SoundCloud, to get an idea of the types of stories we publish.
