Personal #fridayflash news

Hello everyone. This coming Friday will be my 50th story in #fridayflash. I've been sitting on a story called "Flash--A Love Story" for a couple of months because I thought it'd be perfect for this milestone, which, as it so happens, will also be my one year anniversary in posting #fridayflash stories. My first one, last year, was on the final Friday of August. I did miss three weeks throughout the year, so that's why the first story of my second year isn't #53. That's fine, though; I like how it all worked out.

I also plan on recording the audio version of my stories starting this coming weekend and posting them for #SpokenSunday (like #fridayflash, but the authors put out an audio version of a story or some other spoken work instead of written work). I posted last week's story late last Sunday night, and I had fun doing it, so I figured I'd continue. My plan, as of now, is to start from the beginning and keep going. So Sunday you should get me reading the story "Jamie's Home," which was my very first #fridayflash last August.

The big news that I'm most excited about, however, is that I plan on putting out my first 50 stories on Smashwords as a free download. I've just started putting it together, so it'll likely be a few weeks before it's available, but I'm excited that my first year of #fridayflash will be available all in one book for ereaders--all for free! As soon as it goes live on the Smashwords site, I'll post it here, on Twitter, and on Facebook, so you won't miss it if you're interested.

Until next time, keep reading and/or writing.
