There is always so much going on in my life but this weekend is particularly exciting. First off, on Sunday, 6/21, the two-book companion set of FLASHDOGS : SOLSTICE is coming out.
FLASHDOGS is an amazing thing. We are a group of writers from all over the world who regularly share our super short stories via Internet flash fiction contests. The SOLSTICE books represent our second anthology, and I can truthfully say these are even better than the first one. I read and formatted them both. I worked furiously with Mark A. King, David Shakes, and Tamara Rogers to get these done and looking beautiful. I am especially pleased by a last minute story in the DARK volume called “West and East” that I co-wrote with Mark A. King. What a pleasure it was to write with him, even while we were under a fair amount of pressure. Thanks, Mark! I’d do it again any time!
Second, my latest book, The Gantean, is available for pre-order on Amazon and steadily working its way up the charts. Every pre-order pushes it up another notch, so…you know how to make me happy. Here’s that beautiful map of Lethemia by Jeremy Jensen, in case you need to get more excited:
And last, but not least, Beth and I are planning Luminous Creatures Press’s next flash fiction contest. It begins on July 2nd and will feature gorgeous and evocative pictures with one line prompts taken from The Gantean. You can see the contest rules here. Winners will receive copies of The Gantean. Do come out and play with us in July!
