There are no zombie-dalek-rainbow-unicorns in this anthology. Not for lack of trying – they just wouldn’t play nicely with the other characters.
Instead you’ll find a genie with a unique wish, a border post between worlds, a light romance, an alien recorder and a very special chair, amongst others.
This is what you get when you challenge five talented South African writers with a series of prompts and strict word limits: Jozi Flash – an anthology of 29 bite-sized stories with a huge amount of heart.
As unique as the narrators, these tales range from the macabre to heart warming in fewer words than it took to write this blurb.
The zombie-dalek-rainbow-unicorns ate the rest.
I am truly proud to present to you an upcoming anthology, published by a local Publishing house, of which I am a contributor. Following a successful and inspirational NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) last year, a number of us local writers decided to continue encouraging each other to write. With daily writing sprints, referrals to blogs, Twitter and Wattpad accounts, and flash fiction competitions, the combined effort of both those who contributed and those who encouraged, made Jozi Flash a reality.
Chasing Dreams Publishing
A special shout out to Nicky Stephens who is the founder of Chasing Dreams Publishing (website coming up soon) and the driving force behind Jozi Flash (including its cover). Dedicated in sending out weekly writing prompts, steadfastly asking for missing writing, tirelessly editing alongside Cecilia Dathis, all culminating into the anthology that is Jozi Flash.
Jozi Flash will be officially published on the 20th March 2016, that’s only 9 days from the date of this post. Excitement levels are very high!
This anthology will be available for free download in PDF or ePub format and I will notify you all once it is available. So when that happens, please download it, review it and share it. I would greatly appreciate it, and I know my fellow writers and editors would greatly appreciate it too.
If you would like a copy, let me know and I will ensure you receive one. Should you have any books or stories you would like me to read and give a review, feel free to let me know and I will do so.
