Repatriation for Emigration

A stolen suitcase...

 

 

My tiny fiction “Emigration” miraculously reappeared on the front page of Six Sentences this Monday.

If you haven’t read it before this could be an omen, it’s very short, it wont take long.

Head over to…

Emigration published on Six Sentences

I have further stories (not available online) in Vol 2 and Vol 3 of the 6S print anthologies

Wooden Heart published in 6Sv3

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on April 30, 2010

Six sentences publishes their third volume of short stories, not breaking with tradition it’s entitled 6Sv3.

It features not only my tale “Wooden heart” but my wife’s fictional debut too. A double serving.

Copies can be brought from www.createspace.com/3450649 and as a ‘friend’ of the authors you can use the discount code TLGEFA8L to get 20% off. Unfortunately knowing two of the authors doesn’t mean you can use the coupon twice.

6Sv2 available from Amazon

6sv2

I have two tiny fictions “Marriage” and “Minicab driver” in the second anthology of very short stories from Six Sentences.

You can buy it from Amazon or Createspace

I’d go for Createspace but those of us in the UK may find Amazon’s postage cheaper.

In fact, until the failamazon issue is satisfactorily explained I’d rather you did buy it from Createspace regardless of postage costs, I am.

You can read one of my stories and lots by other people at the six sentences site.

Curiosity got the better of me, and bowing down to the pressure of my internal voices (you are just jealous because they don’t talk to you…) I asked Robert McEvily, editor of Six Sentences, which of the two stories I submitted were chosen for the second anthology.

I’ve received his reply and can now decode the cryptic headline to this post – both stories are to be included in the new volume of six sentence long tales. Particularly pleasing as one of them, “Wedding” was especially written for the collection, the other one is “Minicab driver”.

There’s more, the industrious Mr McEvily who deserves thanks and praise from writers everywhere for his hard work in providing such a splendid platform, has set a publication date – March 31st.

Volume 1 is still available from Createspace or Amazon.

Today Six Sentences announced the initial list of authors chosen to be included in the second anthology of stories, all six sentences long.

And yes, they chose one of mine… rather happy.

I would like to tell you which story is being publishing, but at the moment all I know is that I’m in (and that’s good enough for me).  I sent two, I’m hoping it’s “Marriage” as it was written especially for the collection, wonder if I’ll get to find out before seeing it in print? All the stories featured in it are previously unpublished and not available on the splendid site, so you will have to buy a copy if you want to read them.

It should be out in March, in the meantime why not buy a copy of volume 1 from Createspace or Amazon.

Robert McEvily who runs Six Sentences announced the author list in rather unusual fashion: in a Youtube video featuring the names of those chosen matted against theatre curtains. You can watch here. I am a little red-faced to say I air punched when my name went by.
