Hey, that was quick. Only a couple of days after being accepted, “Mirror, Mirror” is now up at Every Day Fiction. It’s slightly lighter and fluffier than my usual fare, although with a certain amount of gratuitous violence towards the end. The piece started life as an entry in the weekly Café Doom Flash Challenge (I may have mentioned that one before 🙂 ), before growing into a more substantial piece for Task 1 in the current SlingInk Eurofiction competition. Which reminds me: Task 9 is due in on Wednesday, and I haven’t written a word yet …
one of the advantages of putting a story out there 365 days a year. When a good one comes along (that’s a compliment, BTW) it’s out there almost before you know it.
It puts you off submitting to other publications, doesn’t it? 🙂
Doesn’t it just. Especially the ones that take several months to fail to reply to you. And I do like the mix there as well – I can’t think of anywhere else that has quite the same balance of literary, genre and frivolous stuff.
And thanks for your comment, BTW!
