Before The Turkey

Just a reminder: It's okay to leave comments!

At some point during the day, I will consume enough calories to feed a small army.

Before that happens, I'm going to do a bit of writing. I haven't had a lot of free time lately, so today I'm going to steal a little and hit the keyboard.

I now have three stories submitted for which I am waiting a response—and have been for some time. So, one more can't hurt. The editors are probably stuffing themselves today, too, so any response is unlikely for the foreseeable future. Instead of checking the acceptance lists, writing is in order. The deadline for my latest project is only a few days away, so I'd better get moving. This one is a fantasy—with a dragon, no less. So, yes, I'm trying a new genre.

I always tell people I'm a horror writer, but it seems every story I've written lately is from a genre I've never tried before. Who knows? Perhaps a cookbook is in my future.

So, until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving!

Anti-Bullying Week 2015

Just a reminder: It's okay to leave comments!

Tales From The Bully Box got a five-star review! Just in time for Anti Bullying Week 2015!

Click here to read the Goodreads review.

From Goodreads  (by moderator Sarah Churchill):
I'm so happy to announce #AntiBullyReads for a second year!

*** November 16th - 22nd 2015 ***

This readathon is in support of Anti Bullying Week 2015, with the aim of starting discussions about bullying and our bid to stand up for those who need it and never be a bystander.

The idea is simple – to read only books that feature bullying during Anti Bullying Week. How many books you read is up to you, but in the spirit of a readathon you should push yourself to read a little more than usual. The book doesn't have to be *focused* on the issues of bullying, as long as bullying is featured in the book in some way.

Over 150 books have been suggested with varying types and levels of bullying featured which are aimed at readers of all ages, so there should be something for everyone. (You don't have to read books from this list, they're just suggestions in case you get stuck!)

I'm Turning Into A Flasher

Just a reminder: It's okay to leave comments!

No need to call the police, however. Well, not for this blog post, anyway.

I've just submitted a couple of flash fiction pieces to the Apex Annual Flash Fiction Contest. They get a lot of entries from great writers, so it's very unlikely that I could win even though they will select multiple winners. Still, it's good to keep writing and have something new in the works.

The subject this year is Christmas invasions. The story has to have an invasion and have a reference to Christmas. And it can't be over 250 words long. With all the folks I know doing NaNoWriMo, I feel like such a slacker.

Come to think of it, I can live with that.
