We have no confirmed plans at present, because we’re promoting the current anthology this year. That said, Talia and I have been discussing the possibility of another anthology, but there will definitely be no call for submission in 2020.

Flash Fiction Challenge: October’s Results

Hoo-whee, this month’s challenge was…challenging. But never you mind your pretty lil’ head over it because my trusty band of authors came through. Yee haw! For October, I drew these cards: 8 of spades, 10 of hearts, and the 6 of diamonds. That meant the genre was Western, the setting was a museum, and the …

“Advice? I don’t have advice. Stop aspiring and start writing. If you’re writing, you’re a writer. Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate and the governor is out of the country and there’s no chance for a pardon. Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff, white knuckles, on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say, like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything, and please, for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves. Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret, so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone. Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to.”
