Okay, over the past weekend I’ve been ping ponging emails with a couple of guys who a lot of you will know: Matt Louis (Editor and publisher of Out Of The Gutter Magazine) and Glenn Grey (Awesome writer).

In a nutshell, and totally out of the blue, I’m very honoured (I’ll add there, daunted) to be the new “editor” of online mag The Flash Fiction Offensive

A big thanks goes out to Matt for the offer and to Glenn for the recommendation.  I’ll try not to let you down!

So, I’ve got some work to do with the place and stories to sort through and, hopefully, I’ll have the site up and running asap.

Wish me luck!!


P.s.  I’ll still be blogging here!!
