Story Drop Day!

Yesterday, my story “From Her Mouth, the Ashes” went live over at Flash Fiction Online. It’s a queer speculative story about birds and relationships and transitions and I’ve gotta say I’m pretty damn happy with how it came out. It’s also my first pro-rate fiction sale, so there’s that.

This was the second piece I’ve written that started as a poem, but eventually morphed into prose. It’s a pretty short jump between poetry and flash fiction (though the last poem cum prose piece I wrote ended up being 6k words, sooo…) and one of the very few times that I felt I needed more words, more story, more structure to make it better.

Thanks to the team at FFO for believing in this piece enough to request a re-write (another first) and giving me the chance to share it with the world.
