The Solstice is Coming!

Meet the cover art (by the very talented Tam Rogers) for the Flash Dogs dual anthology coming out on Sunday, summer solstice for those of us in the northern hemisphere, winter for those in the south. It will be available in both print and e-book formats. Flash Dogs is a casual collective of flash-fiction writers […]

Monday Micros: “A Taste of Freedom”

Initially submitted to the ever-incredible contest venue: Flash! Friday. The element for the week was “theme: defeat” and the picture prompt: And here is what I came up with: “A Taste of Freedom” I chanced across the bird while foraging at the Old Coast.

Friday vol. 3–9: “Slobber and Sympathy” nabbed an honorable mention while “Ripple Effect” earned me a sleek Dragon Badge: Shout out to the judges of Dragon Team two, […]

(I encourage everyone to check out the entries–some stellar examples of flash in there.) The photo prompt by Hartwig HKD was particularly evocative: The required element this week was conflict: man vs. man, and I […]
