Tentatively scheduled for 15 August the US website 101Words will publish my little flash piece 'Tropical Fish'.
'Skin', 'The Guy at the Bar' and 'I was in Need of Money' will all be published in the WorcsLitFest Flash Fiction Anthology 2017.
My story (which I cannot currently name because the award is judged blind) has moved from the 34-strong long list to the 10-strong Dorset Fiction Award short list and will be published in the anthology. Winner announced in two weeks.
Those nice people at the National Flash Fiction Day have selected my story 'The River' to be published online at http://flashfloodjournal.blogspot.co.uk/ at 7.20am on Saturday 24 June. And remain there, of course. A piece of flash fiction will be published every ten minutes during NFFD!
It's taken some time for the book to be published but 'The Note' has now been published by Australian publisher Raging Aardvark in its 2016 Twisted Tales anthology.
