Shara’s hopes of at last fitting in with her fellow Ehlief are as bright as the green and brown strands of her fanned tail, as high as the notes she can’t stop singing. Until, that is, she learns the price of discovering her true destiny…
Shara’s tale, “Vinesinger,” my debut fantasy flash fiction story, releases today in Havok magazine!
What is flash fiction? What’s an Ehlief? Never heard of Havok magazine? And more importantly, where can you get a copy?
Flash fiction includes any complete story written in 1000 words or fewer. Havok, produced by Splickety Publishing Group, is the premier publication for speculative flash fiction. They publish stories in the following genres: science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, cyberpunk, paranormal, supernatural, horror, techno-thriller, superhero, and more.
I am honored to have a story chosen for this prestigious publication, which has featured such renowned authors as Tosca Lee, James Scott Bell, and Jeff Gerke.
One question readers often ask is how I come up with all the out-of-this-world creatures and characters who populate my fantasy stories. For one of my key “writer secrets” and the tale of how Shara and her race, the Ehlief, came to be, check back on Tuesday.
