I have got so far as narrowing down the entries in the First Annual Postcard Fiction Contest to a pool of final contenders (yes, Ale! Your card arrived). Agonizing to make the final choice! I may need a glass of wine for this. Alas, I have none. I suppose that could be remedied, but I have so much to do today.
I will force myself to make a choice by Wednesday and keep rereading them in the meantime. A huge thank you to everyone who entered. I may indeed make this an annual event. It was about this time last year that I got the call saying I was going to Ireland. It has to have been the fastest year on record, whew.
Not that it felt like it when I was packing and clearing out my old flat. The horror, the horror. But wherever I may be, I will stop around this time and think of the adventure about to unfold and feel very happy:
No time to spare for wistful thoughts: much too busy! One of the latest projects: a book trailer for Burning Bridges: A Renegade Anthology. Yes, if you’re reading this you likely already know the story — and that you have no excuse for not getting it! Free on Smashwords, 99¢ on Amazon and all that going to literacy. Don’t make me come over there! No, really — because I’m staying over here. The trailer tells the story of the assembly of our renegade band. Check it out and give it a like and get the book already!
One more important bit of news: I’m writing reviews over at A Knife and A Quill, a site for dark fiction, as you might guess from the name. Lots of horror and crime fiction covered over there. So if you have an interest, drop by and read some reviews, interviews and features. If you’re an author think about submitting something for review by the team. Yes, this is in addition to writing for The Girl’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse and the occasional piece for Un:Bound. Why do you think I’m so busy? My quill is always scratching away.
Writers, who can resist a quill? I remember comparing quill tattoos with Sarah Pinborough at P-Con. Writing: it’s in the blood, it’s in the flesh.
