Five Hundred Words of Magic


I’ve been doing my best to stay on top of formatting the anthology Five Hundred Words of Magic as the Luminous Creatures contest has progressed, so that I am now nearly done even though we just got the final entries yesterday. The ebook and print versions are looking great—they just need a final proofread and they’ll be ready to publish. For those of you who don’t know, Five Hundred Words of Magic is a flash fiction anthology published by Luminous Creatures Press—the mini-press Beth Deitchman and I created as a vehicle for our creative energies—featuring magical stories in five hundred words or less.

We’ll be featuring stories and art by: David Borrowdale, N.E. Chenier, Catherine Connolly, Beth Deitchman, Jacki Donnellan, Holly Geely, Mark. A. King, Christian Miller, Voima Oy, Karl. A. Russell, David Shakes, Emily June Street, A.J. Walker, Brady Wedman, and Jerry Wingren.

LCP anticipates that the anthology will be ready for release early January, 2015. More updates to come.


Last Week for Winter of Whimsy and Wyrdness

This is the last week of Luminous Creatures Press’s  winter flash fiction contest. I posted the photo prompt this morning, and LCP will be accepting submissions of 500 words or less until Sunday 12/21 at 7 am PST. If you’ve been wanting to participate in the fun, this is your final chance. Each week up to four stories are selected for inclusion in the contest anthology. All stories considered for the anthology will explore the theme of magic. Here’s a repost of this week’s prompt image by Christian Miller. To submit a story, visit LCP’s website.
