The Great Green Forever makes HG Wells Competition Shortlist

Many months ago, I wrote a story. Then I had friends—brilliant writer-type friends—poke at it and ask me questions I never would have thought to ask myself. The story almost doubled in length and, we hope, quality and it turned out I really rather liked it.

Apparently, I’m not the only one! I am delighted to announce that “The Great Green Forever” has been shortlisted as part of the HG Wells Short Story Competition.

I’m fairly new to entering competitions (I am currently awaiting the second round results for the New York City Midnight Flash Fiction Contest—wish me luck!) and this is the first piece that has made a shortlist.

I’m so glad it’s this story.

The overall results will be released at the awards ceremony in November. I’m excited.

What a lovely Monday this is.

Pit Stop in perhappened mag

I am so happy to be writing this post. I have been holding onto this for a couple of weeks now and it’s been fizzing in my belly. If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me getting a little bit excited about a recent acceptance.

I am so thrilled to announce that an eerie little piece of flash fiction has been published in issue 2 of perhappened mag!

It’s such a lovely magazine and I’m so pleased to have been accepted; this magazine is going to do great things and I can’t wait to pore over the rest of the issue.

So, without further rambling and before I make this update longer than the piece itself, allow me to introduce ‘Pit Stop’⁠—a strange little story about a moment on the road.
