In all the excitement of meeting Neil Clarke (of Clarkesworld Magazine fame) at yesterday's GSHW meeting, I completely forgot to announce that my 100-word story, SNAKE EYES, was up at FLASHSHOT

Fortunately, they do a 'Last ten stories' page.  You'll have to scroll down a smidge, but f you'd like to read it, you can find it HERE.  This particular drabble holds a special place in my writerly heart because, aside from being the first 100-word story I ever wrote, it was also my first writing 'success' - it won the flash fiction contest at the 2009 Write Stuff conference.

In other news, my debut novel, Fur-Face, continues to do well at OmniLit.com, where it currently holds the #1 position on the site's Top-Seller list for the twelfth day in a row.

I'm extremely grateful to everyone who's bought the eBook.  It's almost enough to wipe away the shame of yesterdays England vs. USA soccer result/.

I love that story. Yay, Jon!

And Woohoo! 12 days running!

Sorry, Snowy still sounds like John Oliver to me. ;)

Lol, how about we split the difference? He can sound like John's famous (but distant) relative, Sir Laurence Oliver ;)

It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't spent the afternoon ribbing all my GSHW friends about how many goals the USA would let in ;)

Hey, it's not like England tied the 32nd ranked team, which is what I think we were 8 or 12 years ago. Even our Keeper (Howard) was complaining that the ball was doing some weird things out there.

We English always assume our team will win by a mile - regardless of previous evidence to the contrary :)
