I’ve recently had two flash pieces published in new e-journal Tincture, titled ‘Apocalypse’, and ‘Glitch’, both stories in the absurd vein, set in offices.
You can buy it here for $8, in many different formats (DRM-free). All proceeds go to paying the writers. See the full list of contributors here. I’m pretty excited to be published alongside Sam van Zweden, one of my favourite bloggers.
Hope you enjoy!
After you’ve had a read, you might want to submit.
Greetings from post-blizzard New York City!
I’ve really been getting into writing flash fiction, or micro-fiction, lately. It’s fun to try to give a strong impression of a scene, a story, in few words. And other people seem to like my super short pieces too. Seizure has just launched a flash fiction section of its website, Flashers, and my story ‘My Sweetheart Saw a Child’s Face in the Train Window‘ is the first one up. I hope you enjoy reading it.

I also recently had two super-short stories published as part of the London Literary Project. It’s first challenge is based on the London Clock. One of my stories is set at the Green Park Tube Station, and the other features George Orwell. I’m happy to be involved in such an interesting project.
The London Clock submission guidelines are here.
There’s a tiny little piece by me up at Capsule today – an online journal for bite-sized lit. It was inspired by a doco I saw on the early career of filmmaker John Waters. It begins:
‘In a cold Baltimore church basement, a vile film flickered over faces. Is it a she? they wondered at the pudgy one, hair pulled back to make room for the skyscraper make-up…’
