Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Tales, the blog where we share or work in progress with you. Ideas started here become stories that grow into books. Each week, our mentor provides us with a word or picture clue. Snippets from picture prompts must be 300 words or less.  Please take time to visit each author and see how well they incorporate the picture prompt into their work in progress today.

Here are this weeks images. See who chose what!
