In what must surely be the final publication of 2019 (I had the acceptance a few months ago, but only just received the email confirming release - at 7pm on Christmas Eve!), I have a story published in the latest volume of "Palm-Sized Press."
I imagine it will be available on Amazon at some point, but at present it can be ordered directly from Lulu here.
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Very pleased to have a short flash piece published in this year's Worcestershire LitFest Flash Fiction Competition anthology, The Jar Thief: Flashes from Litfest. "Casanova Jones: A Tale of the near Future" is an edited down version of a story I wrote last year but thankfully it still works at 300 words (even though the longer version is far better, in my opinion). It is a story about the effects of electronic communication on actual human interaction and so is largely told through Messenger text boxes. I actually read this live at 42 last year and, despite the visual nature of the storytelling device, it still seemed to work. That said, I'm glad this has found a home somewhere as it's one of those that I have a soft spot for, even though I have no real idea why.
