A Story in 100 Words features my flash-fiction ghost story!

Ghostly suitors!

I’m happy to see another one of my 100-word horror tales appear over at A Story in 100 Words.  Its title is “I bring her diamonds.  My hands are full of them.”

You can find it at this link.



Today is shaping up to be a great day!

First, a particularly kind Twitter user in Argentina informed me that she translated one of my flash-fiction stories into Spanish.  The title of the story is “I Bring Her Diamonds.  My Hands Are Full of Them.”  It originally appeared as a 100-word horror story in Microfiction Monday Magazine, and you can read it here.

Then, the talented Robert Hansen shared with me his printing proofs for some of the flash fiction he accepted for the Poems-for-All Project.  Poems-for-All crafts matchbook-sized miniature books for poetry and flash fiction, which can be easily distributed to family and friends, or just “scattered like seeds” in true guerrilla poetry fashion.  The flash fiction that Mr. Hansen selected include another 100-word horror story, “There in the Bags,” as well as my response to the online “Six-Word Science Story Challenge.”

The artwork that Mr. Hansen is downright terrific, and I can’t wait to share it with you after the miniature books are completed.  For more information about Poems-for-All and Mr. Hansen’s unique publishing project, please visit his website here.





Microfiction Monday Magazine features my latest flash fiction.

Microfiction Monday Magazine today featured my 100-word horror story, “I bring her diamonds.  My hands are full of them.”

I just wanted to thank Editor Gayle Towell, who herself is a wonderful writer.  Ms. Towell was a pleasure to work with, and really helped me to improve the initial draft I submitted, particularly with concern to point-of-view and narrative voice.



Microfiction Monday Magazine to feature more of my flash fiction tomorrow!

I got some very nice news myself today from Editor Gayle Towell at Microfiction Monday Magazine — they will be publishing another piece of my flash fiction in tomorrow’s edition.  Its title is “I bring her diamonds.  My hands are full of them.”

MMM’s challenge to writers this October was to tell a horror story in 100 words or less.  This is the second entry of mine to be selected; MMM featured “Girl’s Best Friend” last week.

When my second piece appears tomorrow, I’ll be sure to post a link!
