‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ to be published by Black Market Re-View!

My flash fiction ‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ will be published in the second issue of  Black Market Re-View, an online magazine edited by undergraduate and postgraduate students from Edge Hill University in the UK.

I’m so happy that this story has found a home; it was fun to write, and I hope have fun reading it! ‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ is about a man who reads in the newspaper that Mary Portas is coming to town to fix up their high street.

Interested? You won’t have to wait long! The second issue of Black Market Re-View is scheduled to be published this weekend. I’ll post a link once it’s up!

‘On Returning Home’ Published by Speculative 66!

My flash fiction, ‘On Returning Home’, has been published by Speculative 66and is now available to read in their very first issue. Speculative 66 is an online magazine dedicated to flash fiction of exactly 66 words, and they accept all types of fiction, so I encourage you all to submit something for their second issue.

‘On Returning Home’ is a little science-fiction tale, which isn’t something I normally write, but I was inspired by a thought one day: what if we weren’t the original inhabitants of Earth? You can read ‘On Returning Home’ and other 66-word stories in their first issue by following this link here: Issue 1 of Speculative 66.

‘Full Circle’ to be Published by And Other Poems in September!

My Debut Collection ‘Dots, and other flashes of perception’ to be Published by The Nottingham Review Press in September!

I usually say “I’m thrilled”, but to say I’m thrilled to share this news is a HUGE understatement. I know many of you will already be aware of this news, but I’ve yet to post an update about it! And if you haven’t, well…

My debut flash fiction collection Dots, and other flashes of perception will be published in September 2016 by The Nottingham Review Press in print and electronic format.

I really cannot wait to be able to share these stories with everyone. There’s a mixture of stories that have already been published, but there are many which are unpublished.

The collection is about perceptions and feelings of disconnect; the way we perceive the world doesn’t always match up to reality, and I believe these make interesting, and sometimes delicate, stories.

There will be more information to follow as it is announced. See this link for further details: The Nottingham Review Press.

‘Mother Knows Best’ Published by FlashFlood for National Flash Fiction Day!

My flash fiction ‘Mother Knows Best’ was published as a part of FlashFlood for National Flash Fiction Day!

I love FlashFlood. The idea is that, for one day, the journal publishes a flash fiction every ten minutes, meaning you get a deluge of brilliant fiction. There are over 140 flashes in total, so plenty for you to read and enjoy!
