Forgive me, but I’m about to name drop. And not just once.
First up, I have contributed to this book: How To Publish a Kindle Book. There are a load of great writers in there too, including someone I believe is a genius: screenwriter, John August. Pretty cool, I can tell you.
You might know John August for writing wonders such as this:
The review was brilliant.
My stories explore “the tortuous joys of human relationships”.
I like that.
And some of my endings “charm by their ambiguity”.
I like that too.
I also like that one of my most interesting techniques “is the manipulation of the boundary between the literal and metaphoric.”
Yep, I was thrilled by the review.
And you know what else thrilled me – that Margaret Atwood has stories in the same issue.
That’s right. Me, Margaret Atwood and John August. Who’d have thought it, eh!
I’d strongly advise checking Flash Magazine out – that’s a subscription I’ll definitely be maintaining.
So that’s enough name dropping for today. Though, did I tell you that one of my stories was used on high school course along with one of Dave Eggers’…?
