Thank you for your kind words, Peter. I have discovered that I really like writing short fiction and novellas much better than full-length novels – although I enjoy writing novels, too. In shorter fiction, there are less scenes and episodes to write and keep track of.
I wrote many flash fiction stories, but only sold one to a magazine. I put some of the others that didn’t sell into several collections and put them on Amazon. Couldn’t face letting them just sit there just because the magazine I pitched them to didn’t choose them (they get approximately 4,000 submissions a month because they pay very well). They can’t publish every submission they get no matter how great those stories are.
