Brinda Banerje’s short story, “The Siege”, is featured in the fourth issue of the online literary magazine, CAKE: Short and Sweet. Brinda feels very excited and thankful that this group has helped her along with comments and encouragement.
Tony Noland, in his article over at Write Anything, talks about one really effective method for fixing “broken” characters – the tropes, walk-ons, cardboard, boring, half-drawn characters that populate many rough drafts.
Annie Evett also has an article up at Write Anything, where she talks about submitting your work. Go read it, she makes excellent points.
The Knights of the Round Table, on Goodreads, have proudly announced the one and ONLY winner so far of the Knights of the Round Table Reader’s Choice Award. To win this award, a book must average a 4.5 from all reader reviews, and must have received at least three reviews. The book that met the strict criteria, established by their reader poll, is “Immortal Desires” by Laura Eno.
Carrie Clevenger and Nerine Dorman let us know about the Bloody Parchment: Hidden Things, Lost Things and Other Stories now being released and available for purchase. And make sure you drop by Nerine’s place, there is also a Bloody Parchment anthology call for submission.
Also, Carrie Clevenger gave #FridayFlash a brief plug in this radio interview. Since it was done over the phone, it is not exactly the best quality, but still highly enjoyable.
Congratulations to all!
