National Flash Fiction Day

Saturday 21st June is the third annual National Flash Fiction Day. A day in which the shortest form of story is celebrated  and my third year of participation.

This year I have not one, not two, but three ways in which I'm participating.

Firstly I'm reading live in Bristol, my first time in that fine city. I'll be reading with a lot of other great UK flash writers and feel honoured to have been asked to participate.


Secondly my third collection of flash fiction "Long Stories Short" will be free to every reader who emails me for a kindle copy to be sent to them from June 20th to June 22nd at 23.00 hours BST. My email details are sewell (dot) d (at) googlemail (dot) com



And if that wasn't enough fine flash fiction for you, my fourth collection "28 Far Cries" will be published on National Flash Fiction Day, in both print and e-book formats. Twenty-eight tales about fading super heroes, alien invasions, living statues, fathering, suicide pills, bar brawls, the first human language, the Red Army, Vultures, Radioactive Love, Pole Dancers, Lycanthropy, Beheadings, Warlords, Incubuses...



Twitter hashtag for all the news on the day #NFFD

For now I'll hopefully whet your appetites with a couple of videos of my flash.

"Just Aphasia Going Through"


"Flash Fiction"


"7 Earworms"

Great news! I'd love to attend an event, but alas, I am in the wrong nation for National Flash Fiction Day. Have fun with it.

I saw your name on the list a while ago, hope it all goes well. Sadly I have a prior commitment this year so nothing planned on the day. Am toying with the idea of a little competition...maybe...and did I read that write...a proper paper book..?? :-D

I love a paper book! Those electronic ones are all well and good but so hard to shelve...and there's nowhere to stick my date label on them :-D
