I spent the past week formatting the Flashdogs ebook. The alpha dogs at FDHQ just sent out this teaser image by Tam Rogers and Carlos Orozco, which lists all the authors–thirty-four of them!–who have stories in the anthology. I got to read the entire book early as I proofed it, and I’m happy to say it reads really well. All the stories were a great, diverse lot, stretching from the nearly literary to the fully comedic. I can’t wait to see the final version coming soon in December.
I will have two stories in this anthology coming out in December 2014. The anthology gathers a wide range of flash writers from the international community and will surely be a great read. I’ll let you know as I know the exact release date, but it is expected to be mid-December.
I’m also helping out with the ebook design, and it has been a treat to work with the book’s two main editors, Mark A. King and David Shakes. Follow @Flashdogs for updates about the anthology and future Flashdogs projects.

My writing partner and I host a seasonal flash fiction contest when the spirit moves us. This winter we have created Winter of Whimsy and Wyrdness as a playground for flash aficionados. Our small publishing imprint, Luminous Creatures Press, will produce a free ebook anthology based on the results. The theme is MAGIC, the photo prompts are gorgeous, and we know the stories will amaze us. Each week we will select 2-3 stories from the pack to publish in the anthology. As a special thanks to our anthology authors, we’ll be making a limited edition print chapbook of the anthology just for them. The contest begins Thursday, November 6th, and runs every week, with a photo prompt posted Thursday mornings PST, through December 18th. Submissions are limited to 500 words and the prompts are posted at LCP’s main site. We hope you’ll come and play. Read full contest rules here.
