Published by Vine Leaves Press

My best present this festive season was a note on Christmas eve from Jessica Bell, the Editor of Vine Leaves Press to say that a (very short) story I'd submitted had been accepted for publication.

Vine Leaves Press publishes a daily story in their 50 Give or Take series. My story "Algorithmed Out" will be published at number 432 on the 11th January 2022 (if my calculations are correct).

To read my story (which is about Oliver) you will need to subscribe to the series. (Just follow the link above.) The stories are released as daily emails. I've been subscribed for a while and it provides a daily delight that takes less than a minute to enjoy.

While not the first time I've been published, this is a first for my fiction. It comes at the end of the first year that I've worked consistently on my fiction, so I am quite pleased.

Incidentally, I got the idea of publishing vignettes from Vine Leaves Press. I'm looking forward to adding a lot more of them here in 2022.
