Spent a little bit more time tweaking “Amidst the Swirling Sakura Petals” and fired it off to Flash Fiction Online with a total length of around 1,070 words. If accepted there, it will need to be trimmed down to 1,000 words, but they accept submissions up to 1,100 words with that understanding. All we can do is wait and see what happens there.
I also started work on the epic fantasy story “You Are My Brothers”, with ten pages and approximately 3,000 words finished at the moment. Think of this story as a sword-and-sorcery version of the Siege of Bastogne, featuring a mercenary company caught behind enemy lines and the band of all-female knights that come to their aid. The Order of the Emerald Garland is here to save the day!
