Upcoming Publications: Schooldays, Landmarks and FlashFlood

I’m supposed to be on holiday, but the weather’s not great today and I have to do something, right? How about some publication news, then:

  • My micro fiction ‘Preppers’ will be on the National Flash Fiction Day 2015 FlashFlood edition next Saturday at around 23:00 (BST). FlashFlood is still open for submissions until Wednesday, so why not submit yourself?
  • My story ‘The Beautiful Game’ has been selected for publication in this year’s NFFD anthology, Landmarks. I absolutely love the cover. It’s not out yet – I’ll post a link once it’s been published.
  • The new Paper Swans anthology, Schooldays, is available for preorder (click on the image for the online shop). It features two of my flashes: ‘Served Cold’ and ‘Pret a Manger’.

3LineThursday: Notable Mention

My week 33 #3LineThursday micro story thinkpol got a notable mention.

I am the first one to admit that I’m not a poet – I’d categorise my three lines as micro fiction rather than poetry. But the lines (between micro fiction and poetry) are blurring, I think. So I’m really pleased that my entry was deemed good enough to be commented on by Rachna.
