Don’t panic, they’re still coming. The Alteruvium Expanse continues to grow, adding more fantastical and speculative tales by an exciting group of authors. (Yes, I’m one of them. No, it’s not blowing my own trumpet, I am of course talking about the others… really…)
This is usually the spot where I would ask you kindly to leave a review, but then this is also the seventh story in the Alteruvium Expanse so you should know the drill by now. Just don’t forget to mention a unicorn when you review The Valley of Souls by T.S. Brothers.
One of my favourite things about short fiction is that you can get through a whole story in one sitting. The stories are usually tighter and more focused, which I am also a huge fan of. I don’t care for filler. Get to the point already. They also have some of the best endings.
Well, that’s enough filler… back to the Alteruvium Expanse. Continue reading “Red Sun Rising by Alison Ingleby”
With the recent release of the Indies Unlimted Flash Fiction Anthology, I thought I should enter some more. If I’m lucky I can get into the 2017 anthology. There’s no monetary incentive, but that’s not what this is about. There are a couple of reasons to enter.
Firstly, getting a big pat on the back when your story gets selected cannot be played down. Confidence is as big a part of writing as it is anything else. Anything that builds your confidence is worth putting the time into.
Secondly, it is another publication with your name on it. Having someone else publish a book with your story in can give you a level of credibility.
Lastly, and certainly not least, they are fun to write. They’re also a great way to work on your craft. I’m an efficient writer in that I don’t like to over explain stuff. I try to give the reader just enough for them to build the picture themselves. In flash fiction, every single word counts.
Anyhow, here is my latest entry. Continue reading “Flash Fiction – Treatment”
