FLASHBACK IS HERE

Hooray hooray hip hip hooray.
It has been a massive undertaking and now I don’t know whether to feel relieved or super dooper nervous.

Please head over to Blurb and take a peek. It’s got real gold within it’s pages and a cheap buy at $11.50! Especially when you consider there are 34 contributors, mostly stories but some images as well.

A 'good' news update

Here’s the good news: Flashback 2011 is now laid out in its first draft. There’s no real bad news I guess, other than that the laborious proofing stage now begins (not bad within itself) however I doubt we will make the 1 October deadline I set for this project.

On the other hand, it’s truly not that far away. And it’s a bumper edition.

Flashback 2011 contains approx 200 pages of flash fiction stories written by 32 Redbubble writers. There are some real gems in this collection with a kick arse cover by the very talented Cathryn Swanson. :) (Sorry if I make you blush CS, but I love this cover so much).

Stay tuned for the release date; which will be Blurb, as with the first two collections!
If you haven’t checked out the Flash Fiction Group’s first two col…

Still time for a trip down memory lane over Christmas

To all you Flash Fictionaires and those who are fans of our fantastic group, there is still time (with express postage) to get your copies of Flashback 2010.

Just a note; today a corrected version has been uploaded to blurb. So, if you get confused about the two versions, one is invite only and can’t be ordered (this done just in case there are orders outstanding on it). The link below will take you to the corrected version.

It’s just the ticket for those with little time, who commute, have short attention spans or are after short, sharp and poignant work by some of the best writers on Redbubble – and the world mwahahahahaha (whoops, sorry, bit of mania creeping in there). But truly it’s a work we should all be proud of and a jolly good read.

Best seller

It’s official.
Flashback 2010 is now on the Blurb bestsellers list here
This is the bestseller list for all their titles, not just literature. So we’re up against the pretty picture books and photo journeys.

We really rock over in Flash Fiction Group.

On the 6.53am from Bacchus Marsh

A friend of mine travels to Melbourne to work each day, catching the 6.53am train. Who on earth is up, dressed and groomed, and ready for the day at that hour (I ask myself)? The answer is: all sorts of people who are likely a little tired, not quite ready to face the day, are bored for an hour, and have short attention spans.

Perfect!
I’ve decided to take a leaf out of the book of sjLawford figuratively speaking, and plan to send a copy of the Flash Fiction anthology Flashback on a journey. Inside our little tome will be a note to the reader to read and pass it on and perhaps, if they care to, they can leave some feedback for us so we know where our stories are travelling.

I’ll keep you posted on how this goes. I’m mindful of the journey of the Snail Mail Project and ho…

Flashback update #2 plus chance to win!

Flashback has had over 950 hits to the site.
It has sold 53 copies.
And even the buyers are winners now with Mr Baxter declaring the “Oooo sisters” should win this week’s Buyer’s Booth.

Ah, life is good in the Flash Fiction Group.
The voucher from Buyer’s Booth will now be up for a prize in an extra special challenge, in time for a bit of spending on one’s self before Christmas. If you want a chance to win a $30 voucher to spend on Redbubble, then why not enter the challenge.

Tis Here

Flashback Update

So far, there have been 915 visits to the site (and I’m sure most of them are not me!) plus 50 copies sold.

I’ve yet to see the book as hard copy, can hardly wait. But I think northern hemisphere deliveries are now happening so Aussies can’t be too far behind hopefully.

It’s all still a bit exciting!
