Happy National Flash Fiction Day!

Calum Kerr has done an a-may-zing job of creating, curating and directing the first ever National Flash Fiction Day. There are events and doings all over the country, see here for further details.

 FlashFlood is a journal to celebrate the day with, erm, a flash of flood. You can read a daft little story of mine there - The Key - which combines two of my passions - book selling and Buffy. There are heaps of fab fictions from flashers all over the world appearing throughout the day, so, lots to read.

I am really thrilled to be in Jawbreakers which is the official National Flash Fiction Day Anthology.

Isn't it gorgeous? There's a full list of contributors (including Ali Smith - squee) and details of how to order here, it's available to download for the kindle, or as a delicious real book. You can also buy it from Brighton Waterstones (which is where I took the photo). Aces!

Tonight I'll be reading, chatting and generally being flashy (harhar) at Southampton City Library.

"From 6.30pm, an evening of flash-fiction, reading, talking and celebrating the first ever National Flash-Fiction Day, with Calum Kerr, Vanessa Gebbie, Holly Howitt, Sara Crowley, Tim Stevenson, Gail Aldwin and more. Complete with the launch of the first NFFD anthology and, we hope, some technical wizardry. Come along and help launch the Day."

Finally, in honour of the day, I've created a rather nifty National Flash Fiction Day display at Brighton Waterstones - looky looky:
