- excerpt from, "Terminal Instar," (c) C. N. Nevets, 2011
I hope you all visit the Literary Lab to read all the details on this year's anthology, Notes from Underground. Not only are there are a lot of truly great pieces in there, but all the "profits" go to charity. The book is available for $4.99 for Kindle (or Kindle-app) and $10 in print form at Amazon.com and CreateSpace, where there is a larger profit margin and so more money for the charity. Check out the LitLab's post for details on how to get a discount code, too!
My piece is a 3,600 word short story of psychological suspense, told in the fashion of a quiet, literary thriller. Other pieces in the anthology include work by regular blog visitors J. B. Chicoine, Loren Eaton, Lavanya Krishnan, Jean Michelle Miernek, Yvonne Osborne, Summer Ross, Twitter-comrade Simon C. Larter and more.
We were selected for the anthology through blind-judging of free-writing pieces, and then given a certain amount of real-estate within the pages to do with as we wished. The work submitted includes some very experimental pieces, some novel excerpts, some groups of flash writing, more traditional stories, and a whole lot of writing that is as fun to read from a technical perspective as it is for the content.
Please don't miss this opportunity!
