I don’t have an interview for you this week. Instead I have a bit of flash fiction.
Before the flash fiction—
Nanowrimo has officially begun!
Show of hands, who’s taking the challenge?

50k, all the way!
K, flash fiction.

Have a wonderful weekend.
P.S. Anyone going to the World Fantasy Convention—have a blast! My goal is to get there next year.
