Seems many folks were either busy with Christmas preparations or were just plain snowed in this week. Still, we had 50 stories this week, with one debut. As always there is lots of variety and some outstanding talent on exhibit. And for some reason there seem to be a lot of Christmas stories this week. Go figure.
Please be sure to visit our debut participant, Jennifer Joseph, and leave her a comment and a Christmas cookie or two.
If your story is not in the listing please visit the Collector and add the details. Then shoot me. er, I mean, then shoot me an email and let me know it’s there and I’ll add it to the listing. Thanks for participating in #FridayFlash.
In the News
Emma Newman announced some exciting news. She has another book deal, with eMergent Publishing this time, for her short story anthology ‘From Dark Places.’ The original collection is going to be re-released as Volume One with a follow on Volume Two, both as ebooks. Then both will be combined for a nice print edition sometime next year. Congratulations, Emma, and congratulations to eMergent co-founders Jodi Cleghorn and Paul Anderson for signing a terrific talent. Champagne all around.
Dan Powell has a story, ‘The Last Year of Father Christmas‘ in the Metazen Christmas Charity E-Book 2010. Congratulations, Dan. It’s all for a good cause, so check it out.
Please take a moment to read this appeal from the occasional Friday Flasher and all around great person, April Hamilton, concerning the future of Publetariat. I’ve found the Publetariat very useful over the past couple of years and would hate to see it go under. Help if you can, or simply offer her some words of encouragement. I’m pulling for you, April.
If you have news for or about the Friday Flash community please let me know. I’m always happy to help spread the word. Tips work a lot better than me just stumbling upon them. Thanks. ~jon
