    My story "Misty" is now live up at ManArchy. Cool new site with a Playboy kind of vibe, plenty of sex, drugs, rock n roll. Oh, and fiction!

    What the hell is "Flash Fiction"? But it sounds good...another short story book just like Shivers (thanks again Richard) and the book I'm buying from C.W. yet another short story collection; I can easily finish short stories, I'd like to check out all these books in this section!

    Thanks! Flash fiction is short, short stories--usually well under 1000 words.

    Damn, I could really get into them then. A 1000 words or less?? Absolutely. Any chance of a signed copy?? I'll pay shipping costs and for the book (of course).

    I only plan to release the digital copies at this time. I might publish all or some of the volumes together in the future, but that is still a ways off. But, if and when that time comes, sure.

    My story "The Handyman" is now live in the debut issue of Conjectural Figments. Also in here, the extremely talented Simon West-Bulford and Craig Wallwork. The layout and design is really good.

    Again, well done, Richard. I'm still writing my longest piece to date, which is turning out to be a love story sans my normal horror
    element. It may cross the threshold into novel for the first time. Richard where do yo find these wonderful places (I feel like The
    Joker in the Batman movies)-- I don't see them on duotrope. By the by, ALL OF MY FRIENDS HERE, have a wonderful, prosperous
    and Happy New Year

    Thanks, Randy. Mostly it's Duotrope, but some others just happen to run across my radar. I was actually approached about ManArchy and Conjectural Figments. At one, I know the guy who launched it, and the other, I guess they were a fan of my work. You never know what you'll find in your e-mail, right? Besides hanging out here, I spend time at The Cult, The Velvet, Lit Reactor and a private workshop called Write Club. I see a lot notices through those places too. Facebook, Twitter, sometimes there too. But mostly Duotrope. Thanks for the kind words.

    Hey Richard, I've been so damn busy lately I haven't been able to read your story yet in Shivers...I actually haven't been able to read anything because my grandma is in the hospital again and very ill. She has both COPD and dementia and lives with me. This whole thing is just terrible and I don't really feel like reading a horror story at this point.

    Hopefully though, she'll be released soon and when I get back to work in the spring, I'm going to hire a full time nurse since Medicare only paid for a nurse to stop by for just a couple months.

    Anyway, I'll be in a good mood again soon (lol I hope) and then I'll give it a try. And that postcard you sent with the book....I think it's about another book of yours? You wrote on that too so thanks for that as well.

    And C.W. when is your book being released?? I lost my window again to the link you gave me because this stupid laptop re-started itself without my permission

    sorry to hear about your grandma, that's rough. i totally understand, just do what you can for her, that's what is important. yeah, that's my debut novel, Transubstantiate. kind of LOST meets THE TRUMAN SHOW meets THE PRISONER.

    That's awesome. I'm going to be in that charity antho as well.

    My novella, Fleshbags, was published a few months back. It's reviewed very well and I'd invite everyone to check it out on Amazon, B & N, and Smashwords.

    Cool! Didn't Russel Dickerson do the cover on this one? Either way it looks great.

    That's awesome Ozmo! Congrats. I want to talk to you about some cover art for some of my book ideas. I don't know what it usually costs but I think your book designs are awesome.
