From the Editors
Here we are, heading into November, well into our fifth year of publication and still working hard to bring you a fresh piece of flash fiction every single day.
We do, however, need your help. Free-to-read magazines don’t fund themselves, and at a time when many magazines are dying for lack of support, the reading community needs to keep magazines viable by participating in the fundraising effort.
One great way to help us is by joining our Kindle campaign — it costs only pennies a day to subscribe to EDF on Kindle, and you’ll be able to download our stories to read offline (if you don’t have a Kindle reading device, you can get a Kindle app for your phone or computer) — there’s even a 14-day free trial so you can check it out and see what you think. Isn’t EDF worth a few pennies a day? And with enough subscribers we could even consider raising our author payments and attracting an even wider range of fantastic authors for your daily reading pleasure. If you’re enjoying your daily story at EDF, please consider subscribing to us on Kindle.
A few other ways to help can be found here, if Kindle really isn’t for you, or if you live in an area where Amazon doesn’t allow Kindle blog subscribers.
And, last but not least, happy birthday to Every Day Poets, heading into their fourth year of publication today!
This month, for Remembrance Day / Veterans Day / Armistice Day on November 11th, we bring you Douglas Campbell‘s “Your Luckiest Day”.
Then, our US readers will be celebrating Thanksgiving on November 24th, and for that day we have selected “Dinner Plans” by Ruth Schiffmann.
Also, you may or may not know that each month, our craft blogzine Flash Fiction Chronicles publishes an interview with the author of the top-rated story for the previous month. Since it’s been brought to our attention that many of our readers don’t even know that this cool feature exists, never mind how or where to find it, we’ve added a page with easy links to all of our author interviews. You can see it in the sidebar underneath Top Stories, or just get the links to the author interviews here.
There’s still time to get your winter holiday stories in — Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, Yule, Hogmanay, skiing trips and snowball fights, ringing in the New Year, resolutions, holiday parties, holiday humour and holiday disasters… — just make sure you mark them Targeted so they arrive in the right place in our online system!
