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 Micro: “Dreaming of Midsummer Nights”

This puckish little tale earned an Honorable Mention over at my favorite weekly contest, Flash! Friday. The photo prompt featured a hoodied panhandler and the required element was Character: Spy. “Dreaming of Midsummer Nights” 210 words A butterfly landed on the edge of Robin’s alms cup and fanned its stained-glass wings.

Monday Micro–“Cloven Skies”

I almost didn’t participate in Flash! Friday last week as I spent the morning brainstorming, ended up with pages of notes and nothing that could possibly be distilled into 200 words.

Let’s get this ol’ gal of a blog cranking with some micros. My Scrivener file of flashes is bursting at the seams. We had a big couple of weeks over at Flash! Friday, what with the third Flashversary and the start of the new year with a panel of shiny new judges. So this week’s […]

Monday Micros: “Making it Over” and “Blame Pennywise”

Flash! Friday has a run of incredible tales for round 2–44, based on this picture: and the need to include a surgery.  Head on over to the winners’ circle to check out Josh Bertetta‘s fabulously clever use of the human ability to rearrange the middle letters of a word and still recognize it. The best […]
