A Gentle Reminder

Just a quick reminder that my story, Hidden, is now up on Every Day Fiction – more details here. [Philip Harris]

Out Now – Hidden

Just a quick note that my new story – Hidden – is now up at Every Day Fiction. It’s a little bit of a departure for me because there aren’t really any speculative fiction elements but it’s actually one of my favourite stories. I hope you enjoy it and I’d welcome any comments you have, either here or on the Every Day Fiction site. [Philip Harris]

We Have a Winner – Hidden

I arrived home from a run last night to find an acceptance in my inbox. Every Day Fiction will be publishing my story – Hidden. Hidden is a pretty old story – from April 2006 apparently – but it’s one of my favourites. It’s a bit of a departure for me as it’s not speculative fiction but I’m very pleased that it will finally be seeing the light of day. It should appear on the site in a month or two and I’ll post here when it’s up. [Philip Harris]  

Ugh

Not a good day today – hence the late post. I decided to go running this morning but picked a route that was longer and tougher than I should have so the rest of the day has been a bit of a disaster. The only good point so far has been re-reading three stories from Cate Gardner‘s Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits. I was planning on posting a review, but that will have to wait until later in the week. Luckily, yesterday was a productive day. I finished editing Backwards Boy and submitted it to a website. It came in at 1117 words and I’m pretty happy with it. Unfortunately, the speculative fiction element is very subtle so I think it will be a hard sell. I have another story with the same problem – Hidden and it’s difficult to find anywhere to submit it to. I also wrote the first of a series of longer blogs I’m calling Meaty Mondays. It’s about my attitude towards self-publishing and will go live tomorrow morning. And because that wasn’t enough writing, I also wrote the first 643 words of a new story. Its working title is Origami Man and Paperboy but that may well change.
