Three Upcoming Publications

I’m sure I’m not the only one this happens to: Nothing, and then, everything! I hope to provide a number of blog updates over the next few days and weeks, but for now here’s details about three upcoming publications I’ve had confirmed.

The first will be very soon. My flash fiction, ‘Buffet’, will be published by the brilliant 101 Words. All of their stories are (you guessed it) 101 words in length, and I enjoy reading the diverse range of stories they publish. They’ve previous published my flash fiction, ‘High Street’, which you can read by following this link here. You’ll have to read this one to find out what it’s about – I’ll post again once it’s been published.

The second is another flash fiction called ‘Handball’, which will be published at the end of July by Cafe AphraThis is another great home for flash fiction of all kinds. This story is about football, but something isn’t right – you’ll see…

Finally, my prose poem ‘Lovelorn’ has been accepted for publication by Unbroken Literary Journal. Those of you who have read previous posts of mine will know how much I love this journal, and this will be my eighth prose poem published by Unbroken. It will appear in their July/August issue, and you’re interested in finding out more about prose poetry, you can read my thoughts about it when I was interviewed by the editor, R. L. Black, by following this link here.

A lot to look forward to, and there’s more, I promise you, but for now there’s only so much I can say…
