Starting this Sunday, December 2, I invite my readers to join in a writing workshop called ‘Sunday Stories.’

A first line will be provided to you and you’ll have one week to write a story of 600 words or less using the first line.  You can submit stories as a comment to this post. Your story will appear on this site and other workshop participants can make comments on your story. Please note that if you are interested in some day submitting your story to any print magazine or e-zine, it would be considered to be previously published.

Be sure to include your email address and your name as you want it to appear with your story.

Calgary and area writers and fans – I’ll be appearing on a panel at the When Words Collide festival next weekend. The panel is called A Quick Comment about Flash Fiction and is at 5 p.m. Aug. 10. You have to register for the convention to attend the panels (and it’s a great event, so I encourage you to register), but the merchant area is open to the public. My publisher, Edge Press, will have a table there and I’ll drop in to sign books.

Dear Readers,

I’ve taken a short break from daily writing in this blog, expecting that the time freed up from producing a daily short story might transform into time to finish some longer stories and to send some of my stories off to potential markets. Alas, that has not been the case. Job pressures and personal non-writing tasks seem to always take precedence.

Thus, I am re-committing to posting something for you to read every day, starting tomorrow with a serialized story from my first novel, The Healer.

See you on Canada Day!

Amber

I’m here in Calgary today and in less than an hour my team and I will receive the details about the prop, line of dialogue and genre for the 2 – 5 minute movie we’ll be making over the weekend. I’ll be posting updates throughout the weekend on my facebook page. Wish us luck!

It’s coming – February 12 – 18 will feature seven stories inspired by lines from Ray Bradbury’s ‘The Martian Chronicles.’

Readers, there are only three months of this project to go – if you have any requests, be sure to let me know! The continuing stories – Jonah and Jessie and Ship Cat will be concluded soon.
