So remember last year me telling you about this anthology I was in called Stripped, A Collection of Anonymous Flash, edited by Nicole Monaghan, where all the stories were printed without bylines? Well, a full year has passed with all the authors remaining mum on which stories were theirs, and now finally Nicole has posted the full table of contents. My story? It's called "The Ballad of This and That." It's actually one of my favorite recent flash fiction pieces. It's also one of the last flash fiction pieces I've written. I've sort of "retired" from writing flash fiction. For a while I was writing it all the time, and having quite some fun, but in the past few years I've been concentrating more on novels. That isn't to say I won't write more flash or even hint fiction in the future, but right now don't expect any from me. Which means you should definitely check out Stripped, both for my story and all the rest of the great stories. And hey, I'll be down in Philadelphia next Saturday at Fergie's Pub, from 2 to 4 pm. PS Books is hosting an event for PS authors and the Philadelphia Stories Winter Issue authors to read, and they've asked Nicole to invite local contributors to read as well. So I'll be there, reading my story. If you're in the area, stop by and check it out.
