Flash fiction for book marketing

If you’ve been reading this blog in the last little while, you will know that I’ve been writing flash fiction lately and have had eight stories published in three anthologies.

The White Dress – please help

The White Dress

Over the last few months, I’ve been writing a series of flash fiction pieces with the theme of “The White Dress”.

Aussie Jingle Bells

Surf’s Up for Christmas

It’s time for another writing contest. Susanna Leonard Hill is hosting her 2nd Annual Holiday Contest. This time, it’s based on Jingle Bells (read her post for the prompt).

Being in Australia, it’s hot for Christmas, and hearing songs about snow at Christmas is a foreign concept for us. With this in mind, here is my entry for the holiday contest. While you’re checking out the contest post, read some of the other wonderful entries. [Read more…]
