I'm completely bowled over. In early July, I quickly wrote and sent a submission to Flame Tree Fiction's newsletter flash fiction challenge, Hungry Cannibals. Thursday, I got an acceptance for the story.
Today? My horror flash fiction piece, “A Bride from the Hill Folk,” went out in the newsletter! It has cowboys, a post-apocalyptic landscape, and, yes, cannibals. All in 1000 words!
I'm shocked and pleased by the quick turnaround time. The story will appear on the website in a month. I'm also very proud of it and think it's one of the creepiest things I've managed to publish. I can't wait to share the perma-link with everybody.
