Thanks to all who took part
To mark that it’s 30th April 2012, I’ve decided to give you all a present.
For 24 hours, from noon today British Summer Time, I’m going to give away ebooks of The Fast Fiction Challenge to
selected, ah, the hell with it anyone who emails me.
Of course, there are rules, terms and conditions. Here they are:
1. You email me by clicking on this link and tell me which book you’d like me to send you, and in which format (ePub, kindle, etc.)
2. You smile when sending the email. That’s ok, I don’t need to see you smiling – I trust you.
Seriously, that’s it.
What am I giving away? Well, here’s what Wil Wheaton said in the introduction to volume two:
“There are two hundred stories collected in this volume. They are funny, they are thoughtful, they are romantic, they are frightening. To me, though, they are more than entertaining. They are inspiring.”
This was the challenge I issued on my blog:
Reply with a title (maximum of four words)
about which you’d like me to write a fast
fiction of exactly 200 words, together with a
single word you want me to include in the text
of the tale.
Five hundred stories later, there are two volumes of 180 (vol 1) and another 200 (vol 2) of the best tales.
Stories with titles like Why I Chose Insanity, Three Shades Of Yesterday, and Why Is It Orange? and words such as saturnine, cylindrical and azimuth.
The books can be purchased in either print or ebook versions:
Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll supply the ebook in either .epub or .mobi version on request… Volume 1 (180 stories) is £4.00, or equivalent in local currency; volume 2 (200 stories) is £5.00 Nope, ignore that – for 24 hours, they’re free. Just email me as above.
Why am I doing this? Well, it’s 30th April, why not?
Any other questions?
