A Flash of News

I wanted to wait until I was sure it was ´public´, but now I´d better give you my little bit of good news: in November I participated in a flash fiction challenge, Walmart, I Love You, hosted by Patti, Pattinase. We were roughly forty people who had a lot of fun writing the pieces and visiting each other afterwards.

And now Stacia Decker (literary agent) has sold our joint efforts to Untreed Reads Publishing. Our fabulous (very different at least) anthology, Discount Noir, will be out as ebook around October 1st.

The contributors:
Patricia Abbott, Sophie Littlefield, Kieran Shea, Chad Eagleton, Ed Gorman, Cormac Brown, Fleur Bradley, Alan Griffiths, Laura Benedict, Garnett Elliot, Eric Beetner, Jack Bates, Bill Crider, Lauren Eaton, John DuMond, John McFetridge, Toni McGee Causey, Jeff Vande Zande, James Reasoner, Kyle Minor, Randy Rohn, Todd Mason, Byron Quertermous, Sandra Scoppettone, Stephen D. Rogers, Steve Weddle, Evan Lewis, Daniel B. O’Shea, Sandra Seamans, Albert Tucher, Donna Moore, John Weagly, Keith Rawson, Gerald So, Dave Zeltserman, Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen, Jay Stringer, Anne Frasier, Kathleen A. Ryan, Eric Peterson, Chris Grabenstein and J.T. Ellison.

Am I overwhelmed? You bet. And in such amazing company! Yay.

Thank you to Patti, Steve and Stacie - and everybody else who participated.
