The Flash Fiction Press, Best Tree Ever & Links

My flash fiction piece, Nice Night for a Splash was published on The Flash Fiction Press yesterday. It's FREE to read, so check it out!

I got out for a hike with the kids for a couple hours in the early evening the other day, and there was this amazing tree.





I love Garden of the Gods!

    1. I think you're right. It was such a neat tree. There's a whole side I couldn't get to, because there was a cliff there. Hmmm...

  10. I'm very curious how Aliterate pans out. It would be great to get more SF&F-friendly markets that pay so well to survive and thrive.

    I enjoyed your story! I hope it's okay that I smiled at the closing BMW line.

    1. Of course it was okay to smile! It amused me. I would love to see more spec markets out there that pay well, as well. It seems like short stories are making a comeback lately, so we'll see what happens.
