My previous post mentioned the upcoming National Flash Fiction Day, which will be with us on 25 June. As well as the micro-fiction competition they also produce an anthology of flash fiction, selected from the stories submitted to them each year.
It is with much excitement that I can say that not only do I have a story in this year’s anthology, but it is also the title story. So please keep your eyes peeled for this fine-looking volume, which will be available to purchase soon.
I have a proof version of the anthology, but I am holding out for the full version before diving too deeply into it. There’s nothing like a new book in your hands to really make you enjoy sitting down and reading. What I can say, however, is that it looks like a great collection of flash fiction. Now, I am biased of course, but you can get a sneak preview of what’s going to be inside this particular box of stars over at the NFFD blog; I don’t think I’m over-egging it too much.
And because they’re a great bunch over at NFFD, they have also supplied me with my own version of this fantastic cover. So, to whet your appetite further, here’s A Box of Stars Beneath the Bed, the alternative cover.
