The Night of the Flood and Shotgun Honey

Today is a big day – both for the much-anticipated “novel-in-stories” that’s out with Down & Out Books that I co-edited with E.A. Aymar as well as my little flash fiction piece over at Shotgun Honey. So here it goes…

HAPPY PUB DAY!!

It’s finally here – THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD – is available to read, buy, touch, swipe, whatever format you prefer.

“Each of the 14 varied and fitfully amusing stories in this solid anthology takes as its starting point the destruction of a dam and the subsequent flooding of Everton, PA. Aymar and Chen deserve kudos for putting together a distinctive anthology.” —Publishers Weekly

We received another awesome review – this one from The Masked Reviewer:

“Night of the Flood edited by E. A. Aymar and Sarah M. Chen is an unusual book. The stories by a variety of authors share a setting, plot events and characters. They represent different perspectives on an unnatural disaster engineered by a group of women who call themselves The Daughters. I found The Night of the Flood  unexpected. Some stories moved me while others made me think. I recommend it to readers who have an appetite for a book that’s very different.”

Today a few of us are over at Crimespree Magazine talking about the anthology and our approach to writing our stories.

And lastly – and one I’m very excited about – is my return to Shotgun Honey, a flash fiction site that I’ve enjoyed for many years. I haven’t been published there since A High Ridge Homecoming back in 2015. I was thrilled to be back and so I give you The Last Second Chance. Hope you like it!

 

It’s pub day for KILLING MALMON!

I’m so excited to be part of this short story collection from Dan and Kate Malmon of Crimespree Magazine. It’s such a fantastic concept – 30 authors write a story with only one guideline: Dan Malmon must die. All proceeds go to the MS Society which makes being a part of this even better.

My short story “Masterpiece” features Camera Bob Stillman, a disgraced sports videographer who is forever chasing that elusive big break to work with ESPN when he’s really more suited for TMZ. Dan Malmon is his vengeful nemesis who’s responsible for both launching and ruining Camera Bob’s career.

Out today from Down & Out Books!
