Two Stories Published

Thursday, 24 March 2011


Flash fiction story Titania is now available over in the Spring 2011 edition of Flashquake. It's free to read online via their very snazzy virtual book interface. My little story is nestling on p. 29. This is the market who asked for writers to send an audio file of themselves reading their work so you can also hear me reading to you here. Yikes. Possible uses of the recording include scaring away troublesome birds, replacing fog-horns and riot-control sonic weaponry.





Meanwhile, Spilling Ink Volume 1, which includes my short story Seek Alternative Route, is set to be published in the first week of April, but is now available for pre-order should anyone be interested. Here's the blurb :

Spilling Ink: Volume 1 is a collection of international, award-winning fiction, nonfiction, and prose poetry. Contained within you’ll find a fantastically diverse assortment of prose. From the entertaining to the thought provoking, these short stories, flash fictions, micro-bursts and essays will keep you reading from cover to cover.
