Patty Flaherty Pagan, editor and publisher at Spider Road Press, is calling for more people to review Up, Do: Flash Fiction by Women Writers. It’s an amazing anthology, and I’d think so even if it didn’t have two of my stories in it.
- Flash fiction rules, and all these stories are flash fiction. It’s the perfect take-along book. Each story can be read in small chunks of time. If you’re like me, small chunks of time are probably all you have most days!
- The anthology is inclusive and showcases the full diversity of contemporary women writers’ voices. You’ll find literary fiction, historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction, mystery, and horror–as well as stories that defy genre and categorization.
- The stories cover a wide range of women’s experiences, from childhood to the elder years. They’re set in the past, the present, and, in some cases, the future.
- So what do they have in common? Excellent writing. Strong women’s voices. Complex female protagonists.
