@Fritz. Congratulations on winning that prompt for InfectiveINk.com. That's great, man. Cool site. I had a short short featured there last year. Will be looking for yours this week. 

And Utah: It's been a while coming. Well earned. Congratulations. Your excitement is awesome, too. Celebrate Hard! ahaha

Good stuff, guys.

Fylh, you also gave me some good advice on that story, so thanks to you as well!  This was, I believe, back in your former incarnation as Phil.

We do tend to be out of shape and not last as long.

Edit:  Except for Grigori Black.  Any man who can perform seven penis pushups (it was seven, right?) is in some pretty good shape.

new Curiouser and Curiouser, featuring Craig Wallwork:

http://curiousinterviews.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/craig-wallwork/

it's awesome. he talks about his feet looking lke monkey hands, hiding at the bottoms of swimming pools, childhood crushes...

also, Booked podcast's newest episode, i guest-hosted with Robb & Liv and we slam '50 Shades of Gray' and Twilight and then talk about how awesome Secretary is for an hour or so  - and maybe George Takei and Lionel Richie pop up in there. it was a blast, and i can pretty much guaranteee it's better than the book we talked about:

Hey guys and dolls,

Phantasmagorium, a horror mag started by Laird Barron, is in the process of relaunching. As part of that Phanta has launched a new weekly story series edited by Edward Morris. My short story "The Hot House" launched this new series! It's a Nikki-gothic piece under 600 words so check it out and spread the word pretty please. The magazine can really use your support!

A headsup in whore news- my short story "White Light, White Heat" will be featured in issue three of Pulp Modern. I'll be looking for people to write up reviews on it cause it's gonna need a lot of help considering the fact that its a print only medium (I'm currently corresponding with the editor and trying to get him to do both print and kindle/tablet mediums). Anyway, if anyone would like to read it and review it, let me know and I'll see if I can get it to you at a discounted price.

I'm getting ready to launch a combined literary/photography journal with my boyfriend. As of yet, it's very basic and has more information than prepared content, but we're currently seeking featured contributors for the literature side of the journal. These contributors will be spotlighted in further issues of the magazine. More information can be found on the site.

The magazine works around a concept of social contracts and human nature. It's called Our Collective Subconscious. Right now, we have only a basic wordpress site, but it has all the information for becoming a featured contributor, which is our main focus at the moment. I'm hoping to debut in Winter of 2012.

@Richard

Thanks, man! I've actually been kind of weird about posting these music interviews on here, because, well, it's not a music site. However, anybody that is well known that I interview grows the site. These guys for instance  have like 25k fans on Facebook and it's really cool to see the traffic hang around and check out stories from everyone. I think it's something that is really going to drive the site readership even more and help authors.

Oh, and Kathryn, your story has been quite popular. 

 

Also, Nikki, when can I expect to see something from you? I have yet to see a bizarro submission from anyone. =]

Not live yet, but very excited so had to share - article and artwork that I delivered to the very wonderful Something Dark magazine has been promoted to cover feature and they'll be including a piece of flash fiction that I wrote some time back before I knew what flash fiction was. Not sure which piece they'll be using for the cover, but this may result in my scrawny naked body gracing a front cover. (see here if you're strong enough) 

Also this week finished an article on the Art Market for a finance magazine which I won't link to because its achingly dull but the cheque attached was significant enough to make me abandon my principles.

In the meantime here's a blog post on Botticelli, Freud and why people should laugh in art galleries.

Now I'm going to go and get drunk.

Twin barrelled flash-fiction attack over at Solarcide. Flash Me!, of the Litreactor Forums and curated by Chester Pane, was guest judged in April by Martin Garrity and the results were a whole lot of fun.

Second and third place stories went live on the site today. Presenting...

Afterlife Mixer by Daniel Gonzales (aliensoul here), a shot of the bizarre from beyond the veil.

And The War, a quick piece of gritty realism from Lisa McCormack (covewriter).

The winning story, by Fritz Wolf, will be featured by the site sometime in the near future.

congratz everyone! great work. my short story finished its run as Story of the Week at Phantasmagorium, but a new story is up and it's completely top notch so you should check it out. Story called “The Walk” by Suresh Subramanian. You can find it here.

Great people are published at Phanta such as Laird Barron, Joe Pulver, Scott Nicolay, Stephen Graham Jones, Edward Morris and even me (in no particular order, plus others, my apologies)!

:-) anyhow, check out that story ... and author submission guidelines are being drawn up for the online stuff. Print is still by invitation only. Get in on this or at least enjoy the amazing free fic.

cheers,

Good on ya, Nikki; keeping the promotion train going by talking up others. I like it.

And now to de-rail that train, the 3rd (or 4) part in the Sunday Observer Three dialogues on literature column by Pablo D'Stair is now live. Pablo D’Stair and I talk all sorts of shop. In his installment we compare publishing to marathon running (but not in that long haul, endurance cliche way that you might be thinking) and also what sort of accolades should be involved, if any, in publishing.

Read part three, here.

Then, be sure to read part one and part two as well.

My story "Bringing In the Sheaves" is now live at Beat the Dust. You may recognize this story as one of my winning battle entries in the recent WAR tournament.

Not only did they publish my good friend Craig Wallwork in the last issue, but they have a history of great authors there: Roxane Gay, Joshua Mohr, Lindsay Hunter and many more.

Are we born flawed, sinners in our hearts, or does the world just beat us into submission?
