Good tidings

Woman On Wire - scene from the animated trailer I'm making to promote this story and others. All images copyright © 2013 Rachel J Fenton (Rae Joyce)


Is it good things or disasters that come in threes? Or maybe just buses. Well, I have pairs of goodness. Two pairs.

My flash "Waiting for High Tide" is in the April issue of Flash Frontiers, along with "Young Girl With a Sheaf", published in the December "Gift" issue and now republished with a commentary from me - a sort of behind the scenes of my creativity/inspiration for the piece.

I also have two fictions in Brief #47- "Songs From a Room" and "Woman On Wire" - which I'll be going along to the launch of on Saturday evening at The Audio Foundation, where comics anthology Dailies is being launched in tandem!

Massive thanks to respective editors Michelle Elvy, Sian Williams, and Alex Wild.

PS Alex's book The Constant Losers is well worth a look for anyone with an interest in youth culture and graphics in novels, or anyone whose ever read the scrawl on a toilet wall...

Thanks, Niamh! :) The story of the same name is one of my favourites. I had fun with the cut outs!

Justice is done! Good news, Rae.

Thanks, Dick. I'm only disappointed the April issue of FF wasn't out a week earlier, "Waiting For High Tide" has a tone of prophecy about it in the context of recent historical events.
