Janet Lingel Aldrich had her flash piece, “Mobius,” published on “Yellow Mama.” Don’t be put off by the Yellow Mama “adult content” warning. Janet assures us that “Mobius” is not an “adult” work and will not offend. I’ve read it. She’s right. Congratulations, Janet.

Long time #FridayFlash contributor Chris Lynch has made his novel, “The Magpye Circus,” available for free on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other venues. It is currently bumping around in the Top 20 “Occult Horror” novels on Amazon.com, and is slowly creeping up the charts at iBooks, and Barnes & Noble. This is not a promotional event, it is free forever. Chris is trying to increase his readership, so if you read and enjoy it please pass the word. Check out his website for more details. Much success to you, Chris.
John Wiswell announced he made a professional rate sale of his short story, “Wet,” to Urban Fantasy Magazine. Surprisingly, this is his first pro-rate sale, but surely not his last. Congratulations, John, and continued success in the future!
