Rejection v Success... Pill Hill Press Daily Flash Fiction anthology ...I'm in!

No sooner had I received a polite rejection from New Dundee Writing that my somewhat controversial short story submission (dealing with suicide bombers) didn't make their anthology, that my spirits were lifted by the news that my supernatural crime story, FLY BOY, has made it into Pill Hill Press' 365 Days of Flash Fiction anthology.

FLY BOY has featured on both TKnC and Six Sentences and I'm well chuffed it's now gonna be in print alongside the likes of that particularly prolific pair of pen-pushers, Paul D. Brazill and Lee Hughes .

Submissions are ongoing until filled, so if you fancy a pop just click on the title of this post.

And don't forget you can read my brand new, and somewhat longer, vigilante crime story, MOPPING UP - introducing characters from my ongoing crime novel - in the forthcoming EVEN MORE TONTO STORIES (see on the right for details).
