My flash fiction piece, The Eyes, was published in Molotov Cocktail’s Flash Legend Mega Issue.
The craziest thing about this is Mark’s (my husband) piece placed in the top ten of their Flash Legend contest as well. The editors commented that --
“We also saw a Molotov first, with two people who apparently live at the same address each scoring a slot in the Top 10 (must be something in the water)."
Once we saw that scrolling down on the contest winners’ announcement page, we hoped they were talking about us.
And they were!
The Eyes – No. 4
Note about this story’s inspiration - I wrote it about The Deogen legend in the Sonian Forest .
Mark’s story and first published piece below
La Puerta – No. 9 (a suitable musical placement)
Also, super exciting, both of our stories will be included in Molotov Cocktail’s Fifth Annual Prize Winners Anthology (details on that in late summer).
We’re looking forward to reading the entire issue.
The Molotov Cocktail is a Portland-based electronic literary journal serving as a projectile for incendiary flash fiction of the dark and offbeat variety. We believe flash fiction should ignite on contact and engulf the page.
