Hand on heart, I didn’t say those nice things about the bookmark that thinks it’s a magazine that thinks it’s a bookmark that thinks it’s a…. only because I knew this was going to happen…
I said them because I meant it, and sent the tale in after my post, honestly. So kiddies, just goes to show, no harm comes from saying nice things about nice people making nice stuff.
Thank you Dog Ear.
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…
I have further stories (not available online) in Vol 2 and Vol 3 of the 6S print anthologies
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.
I’m delighted to announce that The Pygmy Giant have published my tiny fiction ‘A Clean Mind’…
The Pygmy Giant ought to receive a round of applause for actively supporting UK writers, I had this story turned down by a stateside litzine for to being too Anglicised and was even refered to as ‘British Julian’. Hoping it speaks a universal language, but not a global truth.
I stole the Brillo picture from Mr Warhol who scrubbed up nice I hear.
This Zine Will Change Your Life is one of my favourite bi-weekly stop-offs, a super sharp shot of strong fiction to slug back with a morning expresso.
I rate it enough to buy a copy of ‘Radiant days’ by Michael A Fitzgerald solely on their recommendation (so it better be good boys). Can you imagine my joy when I heard that they are publishing my tiny fiction ‘Hamam’. There might even have been a funny little celebratory dance.
Grab a towel and read it at
The husband and wife team who make sweet words together… maybe not make but keep cosy under a shared cover, for my tiny fiction ‘Wooden Heart’ has been accepted for publication in the third volume of Six Sentences short stories, alongside my spouses debut ‘Reward Card’: two tales of six sentences which along with this announcement sharper readers will realise totals a Baker’s dozen.
My tiny fiction ‘Atisshoo’ has been published by Ink, Sweat and Tears
Charles Christian started I,S&T to fill a gap in what he saw as a union between poetry and prose, a gap that in the five years it has been publishing he has helped fill considerably. Kudos to those who home the misfits, my gratitude and admiration goes to him.
Head on over to matchbookstory.blogspot.com to read it. There is a touch of absurdity in this post probably being longer than the actual story…
I have two tiny fictions “Marriage” and “Minicab driver” in the second anthology of very short stories from Six Sentences.
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.
