Double the celebration! Double the Flash!

Good afternoon. Happy Father’s Day and Happy Solstice.

For those of you who don’t follow my other blog, The Angry Hourglass, I host a weekly flash fiction challenge that takes place over the weekend. It’s part of a vast and colorful (or colourful for my friends across the Atlantic) online flash fiction community that I’m happy to be a part of. As with many communities that share a passion, we’ve created a nickname and hash tag to identify ourselves and share our love on social media: #FlashDogs. Over the past few years, the Flash Dogs have come together and created an anthology series (all proceeds donated to charity) featuring the medium we all hold dear—flash fiction.

What does any of this have to do with Father’s Day or the Summer Solstice?

This year the two holidays coincide. They also happen to coincide with the release of the Flash Dogs’ second anthology, that is itself a two-volume piece. These themed volumes are aptly titled Solstice: Dark and Solstice: Light.

I have a story in Solstice: Dark, but even if I didn’t, I’d recommend picking up this set. The quality of writing that these writers produce on a weekly basis (and many of them several times per week, depending on just how many flash fiction challenges they tackle) is astounding. I wish I had the stamina to produce like these folks.

So! Celebrate Father’s Day! Celebrate Solstice! Celebrate Flash Fiction and the mission of literacy! Swing by The Flash Dogs website and follow the links to your favorite flash format (print or ebook) and enjoy.

I have a few updates regarding upcoming publications that I will announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Flash Dogs In Print

Just got my hands on a print copy of the Flash Dogs Anthology, and it’s prettier than I could have imagined. If you still haven’t picked up this collection of flash fiction, head over to theflashdogs.com and follow the appropriate link.  Remember, all proceeds go to charity, so in addition to getting some great stories, you’re also contributing to a good cause. 🙂

Flash Dogs: An Anthology – Coming Soon

Poster

 

I have a strange little story appearing in this collection, due out next weekend. I’m honored to be part of this charity anthology, appearing alongside a number of authors I’ve come to call friends. A significant amount of of work has gone into the production of Flash Dogs, all done for love of the flash fiction form.  All proceeds from the sale of this anthology benefit The International Board on Books for Young People. For more information about the anthology, its authors, or the Flash Dogs in general, visit www.theflashdogs.com.
