We’ve got so many things on the go this week, we figured the easiest way to tell you about them would be to round them all up in one huge blog post.
Today marks the official release of four sparkling new ebook short story singles: Wolves by Naomi K. Lewis, Everything Must Go by Jeff Dupuis, Scuzzy Love by Curtis Snider, and Submission by Suad Ali.
And as always, you can get them in one of four ways:
1. FPQ Complete Collection 2
Get the new releases, as well as every story from the past three mini-collections (including work by Pauline Holdstock, Jessica Westhead, Kirsty Logan, Chad Pelley, and Andrew Forbes), for a total of sixteen (16) singles in one tidy little ebook package.
2. FPQ 8
… Or if for some mysterious reason you don’t want to take advantage of the sweet deal above, you can purchase our latest mini-collection, featuring the four new stories in one tidy little(r) ebook package.
3. FP Singles
… Or you can purchase the stories of FPQ 8 individually. Click on the covers above to read summaries and excerpts for each.
… Or you can purchase a 1-year FP subscription, and receive ebook files for every new collection during the period of your subscription, as well as access to our Subscriber Library, which contains every single story we’ve ever published – including FPQ, Andrew Kaufman’s Ways Into Heaven, and anything else we cook up – for your online reading pleasure.
Free Story/Newsletter Giveaway
Author Richard Rosenbaum, whose story The Oughts was published by us way back in FPQ 3, has a first ever book out : Raise Some Shell, an irreverent, intelligent, and earnest critical analysis of the Ninja Turtles phenomenon.
To celebrate, we’re opened up the Subscriber Library vault and posted The Oughts, free to read online, for the rest of the month.
But wait, there’s more! The fine folks at ECW Press have generously bequeathed us with one copy of Raise Some Shell, which will go to one lucky FP newsletter subscriber to be named on May 1st, 2014. To be eligible, all you have to do is sign up*.
*And live in North America. But we’re working on stuff for the whole world, we promise.
Four Weeks of Flash Fiction
Last, but certainly not least, we’re also celebrating the release of The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales, the 2013 Scott Prize-winning debut short story collection by Kirsty Logan (author of the FP singles Suckers and In Our House by the Sea).
To help promote The Rental Heart, we’ve devoted our April to posting weekly flash fiction offerings by Kirsty. Two down, two to go.
What better way to take a short, short, short break from the daily grind, than by reading a tiny tale from a true teller?
