Flash Fiction February

Fictive Dream has declared this month Flash Fiction February. To celebrate, the publication is presenting a new piece of flash (between 250 and 750 words) every day this month. Featured today is my 300-word story, “Scars.” It was a pleasure to work with editor Laura Black again. A longer story of mine, “My Ex-Boyfriend’s Girlfriend,” was published by Fictive Dream in August 2017.



New Story in The Cabinet of Heed

Out today is Issue 3 of The Cabinet of Heed, which includes my 300-word story, “Who Needs an Invitation.” According to its website, “The Cabinet of Heed is a multi-drawered piece of furniture that grows hungry at various times of the year. The only way to sate The Cabinet’s hunger is to feed it great writing.” Simon Webster is “The Cabinet’s Chief Polisher.”



Year in Review

How fortunate I feel to have had my work published in a dozen journals in 2017. Two of the sixteen stories published were flash fiction; the rest were microfiction (twelve of which were 100 words or fewer). A big thank-you to all the journals that published my work this year: Blink-Ink, Boston Literary Magazine, Brilliant Flash Fiction, The Drabble, Fictive Dream, FlashFlood: The National Flash-Fiction Day Journal, Microfiction Monday Magazine, Nailpolish Stories, Paragraph Planet, Riggwelter, Train, and Whale Road Review. 

“Reservations” in Brilliant Flash Fiction

Brilliant Flash Fiction has published my story, “Reservations,” in its 15th issue, September 2017. The goal of Brilliant Flash Fiction, based in Ireland, is “to present the best and most unusual international fiction for readers.” Stories in this quarterly publication contain fewer than 1,000 words as well as a “‘flash’ of revelation or surprise.”
