A Blogiversary Contest!

From the Write Angle is one year old! We can't believe it has been a year already. To celebrate our birthday month, and to thank you, our loyal fans and readers, we're having a contest!

  • What: Flash fiction, maximum 500 words
  • Requirements: You must use each of the following words in your entry: paper, crew, callipygian, angle, novel. Other than that, there's no specific theme. It's up to you. Have fun with it!
  • Deadline: Entries must be received by midnight (EDT) on Wednesday, April 18th 2012
  • Method of entry: email your entry to fromthewriteangle@gmail.com with your flash fiction pasted in the body of the email. Please don't send any attachments.
  • Results: the Write Angle Crew will read and collectively decide on two winners, which will be announced here on the blog on Friday, April 27th.
Important: By entering, you agree to let us publish your flash fiction on this web site if you're one of the winners.

We would love if you would tweet or otherwise share this post and spread the word about the contest. We'd also love for you to subscribe to our blog. However, these are not requirements for contest entry.

One last thing... PRIZES! Two lucky winners will receive book by Write Angle crew members.

  • Publishing Experience:Journalist covering U.S. nonprofits, foundations, and life in general. President and Chief Elephant Officer of Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC, and publisher of Spring Fevers, an anthology of short stories, 2012, which includes sixteen stories by ten AQC writers, and The Fall, a collection of tales from the apocalypse. Ironically, The Fall was delayed by the apocalyptic Hurricane Sandy. Published Summer's Edge and Summer's Double Edge in July 2013 and Winter's Regret in January 2014. Our first novel, Whispering Minds by A.T. O'Connor, was published in November 2013, and our second, Battery Brothers, in time for baseball's opening day, 2014. Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand by RS Mellette was published in Dec. 2014. Looking at 2015, we're aiming for two novels and a horror anthology. In 2015, I had an essay published in Red Fez, which was my first "memoirish" piece. I expect to do more of that in 2015 and beyond.

And our own Robb Grindstaff, we can't forget him. In fact, all the writers with stories in Spring Fevers happen to be AQC writers, though it wasn't required. And yes, the winner will be among the first to have one of the paperbacks! Very exciting.

  • Publishing Experience:My debut novel, "The Sister Queens," (March 2012/NAL), was set in 13th century France and England and wove the captivating story of sisters, Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence, who both became queens. My next solo novel, "Medicis Daughter," (Dec 1 2015/Thomas Dunne) travels forward three-hundred years to the intrigue-riven French Valois court, spinning the tale of beautiful princess Marguerite who walks the knife edge between the demands of her serpentine mother, Catherine de Medicis, and those of her own conscience.

    In between I became a "hybrid" as part of a group of six authors involved in a high concept novel-in-six-parts called "A Day of Fire" which released in November of 2014. The book, "A Day of Fire," tells the story of the final days of the doomed city of Pompeii in a way you've never read it before.
