Quickies: Short Stories For Adults will be released on Wednesday September 28th.
’72 pages, 30 writers, 1 track mind’ is our slogan for this most unique of ventures. We have set up a page called ‘Buy’ on which, on publication day, you will be able to mail order a copy. We also plan to release a Kindle version on the same day.
The best way to get a copy, of course, would be to come to our Smut Night. More details in the blog post below. Here’s a taster from the introduction…
We have toffees and tits, fetishes and Facebook, shivers of joy and a sexy stuffed toy. We hope you enjoy the pleasures to follow.
Quickies contains three kinds of stories. Some of our favourite writers submitted work exclusively for this collection. We also took public submissions and, although we rejected many more than we had space to accept, the sheer quality had our hearts pulsing.
Finally, you will see some titillating tales from the editors, the Flashtag Writers…
Hot on the heels of a second successful Flash Language Literary Pub Quiz, we’re collaborating with our Bad Language pals for a second time this month and taking part in their Bad Shoes Festival in Chorlton on Sunday 25 September. Hotfoot it over to the interactive arts festival, which sees live music in Dulcimer and spoken word in Electrik, where all five FlashTag writers will take to the stage. We may even be wearing bad shoes to boot. (Do you like our shoe jokes, by the way?)
Then on Wednesday 28 September, it’s the event you’ve all been waiting for: the FlashTag writers’ very special Smut Night marking the launch of our wild and wonderful Quickies: Stories For Adults filthy flash fiction anthology. The collective will each read their naughty little numbers and will share the spotlight with “flash fiction grandmaster” David Gaffney, some of the dirty-minded authors specially commissioned for the book plus the successful saucy story-tellers from the open submissions process.
Smut Night takes place at the Northern Lawn Tennis Club (clubhouse) on Palatine Road in Didsbury (M20 3YA) from 8pm on Wednesday 28 September and is part of Didsbury Arts Festival.
