Great news! The “Best of Friday Flash – Volume One,” an anthology that includes one of my flash fiction stories was released today in ebook format at smashwords.com.
“Bottom of the Ninth,” my flash about a nervous preteen whose softball team championship rests in her pudgy little hands, is part of the first collection by Friday Flash writers, a group of writers who publish flash fiction on their blogs every Friday.
The anthology is available via smashwords.com in just about every ebook format for just $2.99.
To see the book and download a sample (or BUY it!), click here: Best of Friday Flash: Volume One. The printed version will be released shortly. Stay tuned for details.
For a little info on the book release, visit Mad Utopia, the site of Friday Flash founder Jon Strother.
As you might imagine, I’m just beside myself with excitement! I feel like I should be passing out cigars and champagne.

Congratulations Olivia. I recall reading your story as part of #fridayflash and enjoyed it then. I am enjoying it all over again as I read “Best of Friday Flash Volume One”.
I’ve also just listened to the track you link to on Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” album. I’m not familiar with it – but have to become so. It was gorgeous.
Thanks for expanding my horizons – and congratulations again.
Thanks, Anthony and Kevin! Yes, Kind of Blue is an amazing piece of work. There are more tracks in youtube if you want to sample some more. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
That’s very cool. Congratulations. I enjoy seeing what you write for flash fridays.
I’d not heard of Smashwords. Thanks for the info. Have you considered using Lulu.com for p.o.d versions of your book? I’ve sold a few of my own that way
I’ve heard great things about lulu.com, and I would consider it for print on demand. One of my stories is included in The Best of Friday Flash, but I wasn’t involved in the publishing of it. I’m quite happy with Smashwords, though. They’ve done a great job of publishing the e-book in all formats.
