Welcome to Calliope's Coffee House the proprietor of this establishment is Jacquie Reaville better known as The Book Imp.

When I started this place it was primarily for book reviews and thoughts on all things literary. Well the book reviews are still here, but somehow it's grown into a place for me and others to practice short fictional writing and of course a place where I can give my thoughts and opinions on virtually any subject that might take my fancy.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Just to add that I welcome comments, the more the merrier. They don't even have to be related to books or writing just go wild (not too wild though).

Permissions are set so that even anonymous users can answer - but comment moderation is in effect which means I get to say yes or no to letting them appear here.

The Calliope Experiment #1

"If a picture's worth a thousand words" as the song goes. I'm not asking for 1,000 only 500. So 500 words by Saturday, on whatever the picture pushes into the mind and out of the fingers. Let's see what happens.

Now I'm pretty sure that Collective Chris probably won't post anything so it will be up to me. Until Saturday 17th May then.

Here is this week's contributor:

"The Birthday Gift" by Jacquie Reaville at Calliope's Coffee House


  1. Hi, wanted to stop by. Found your blog on LT's Early Reviewers and have signed up for the fun Tuesday event! :)

  2. Great thank you, should be more interesting than just me posting something LOL. I'd suggest you post a comment here when you're done and leave the url so people can visit it. How's that sound?

    I'll try and add all the links under my post (that is if any one else decides to join in).

  3. I love your site and I love MILO!!!!

  4. Double thanks Tina the site is only a recent thing, I had another but decided a complete change was in order. As for Milo well, he's probably the cutest dog I've ever known, but then I would say that wouldn't I LOL.


I welcome comments so please feel free to leave a message, the site allows Anonymous users but comment moderation is in effect. Which means I get to vet what you've written before it appears on the page (Oh the power!).
