Flash Fiction Month has just ended, which means that (as well as bundling my stories together into a brand new anthology) the task of catching up on everything else that happened during July begins. There’s been a fair bit of news that I would have shared already if there hadn’t been quite so many 3am finishes or 6am starts, and top of the list is probably Kicking and Screaming.

As it’s the first day of the book fair, it’s hard to say how this will all play out, but I’m looking forward to seeing some interesting things from some interesting authors. M.R. Graham‘s The Medium is also among those books featured today, and having seen the blurbs for some of the things coming up later in the fortnight, I know for sure that I’ll be keeping an eye on the event.
