October’s Table of Contents

From The Editors

We’re always busy and growing here at Every Day Fiction and Every Day Publishing, and we hope to have yet more exciting news for our readers soon. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for breaking news any day now, and we also tend to post announcements on the forums, so that’s another good place to lurk and loiter.

In the meantime, don’t forget that you can help us in a number of ways. One great way to support Every Day Fiction is to sponsor a story — for only $4 US, you can have a permanent text link added to the bottom of an upcoming story (or a past story, for that matter, if you prefer). It’s a great way to promote your blog, your book on Amazon, or a charity you care about. Your sponsorship will last as long as EDF does — every time someone reads the story you sponsor, your link will be there – and if “your” story gets Stumbled or makes our top ten list, you’ve hit the advertising jackpot.

For Readers

October brings you stories for both Fire Prevention Week and Halloween.

Fire Prevention Week runs from the 3rd to the 9th, and you’ll notice some fire-related titles during that week: “Fire Safety” by Matt Cowens, “No Smoke Without Fire” by Debbie Cowens, and “After the Fire” by Stef Hall. Enjoy the stories, check your fire extinguishers and smoke alarms, and thank a firefighter.

For Halloween, we have a chilling week-long selection of suspense and horror pieces for you, leading up to “Spider” by Tom Kepler on the 31st. Trick or treat!

For Writers

We’re still looking for some Remembrance Day/Veterans’ Day pieces for November, as well as Thanksgiving, and we’re also starting to think about December’s lineup, so send us your holiday pieces now too.

We also have a change in our slush reading team. Laura Crowe and Michelle Jager have moved on to other things and will be much missed, and Adrienne Bard has just joined us. We do need at least one more slush reader, though, so get your application in if you’d like to give slush reading a try.

All of that said, make the most of your month’s ration of Halloween candy — love those mini chocolate bars! — and eat them with a good story.
