From the Editors
This past month, Every Day Fiction was in the news — Kevin Young, our marketing & public relations representative, spoke with Gillian Shaw of the Vancouver Sun newspaper, and as a result, EDF was featured in a fantastic article, both in print and online, including a super-glamorous photograph. The article was subsequently picked up by the Saskatoon StarPhoenix (though sadly without the photo).
As well as saying lovely things about what we do here, the article also let out the secret about what we’re up to next, so it’s not a secret any more: we’re adding Every Day Novels to the Every Day Publishing family, to offer serialized novels — all the bite-sized craftsmanship of flash fiction, with the depth and complexity of a novel. If you’re interested in helping shape how these serialized novels will be offered, what a subscription should include, and what genres and styles you’d like to see, please take a moment and fill out a short survey (only eight questions!).
Sadly, we have no Canada Day or Independence Day stories for you (no one sent us any). However, on June 16th, we’re featuring “Sleeping” by Daniel Austin Warren in honour of the fact that on that day in 1951, Nash K. Burger published Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger — so, perhaps not a holiday or famous occasion, but… an occasion.
We also have the usual variety of work, including stories by returning favourites such as Erin M. Kinch and Mickey Mills, as well as newcomers to EDF including John Keel and Amber Foster.
We’re always interested in stories that mark special days or occasions, no matter how obscure. Plus, please do consider sending us pieces targeted at major holidays, seasons, etc. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Remembrance Day/Veterans’ Day, etc. are all on the horizon, and we’re also interested in back-to-school and autumn pieces.
And now, the stories for the month ahead…
