I wrote a piece of flash fiction over the weekend called They’re Harvesting Stars, You Know?, which I’ve just posted in a couple places. I usually work in science-fiction & fantasy, but this is a step or two outside of my comfort zone, falling instead into magical realism. It’s all of 900 words (or 4 minutes by Medium’s estimation), and I’d be tickled pink of you’d hop over and give it a read.
You can find the piece at Medium.com;
Or with an ambient soundtrack at Booktrack.
Cheers, and I hope you enjoy!
In my continuing adventures with Booktrack, I’ve now also created a soundtrack for the first chapter of Stars Rain Down, which you can check out by following this link!
Friends, Romans, and countrymen! Lend me your ears!
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m competing in The Hugh Howey Booktrack Competition, which has a $5,000 grand prize, and my entry is finally ready!
Jessa is technically 24 years old, but she was born just two weeks ago, a genetically engineered colonist living on the galaxy’s distant and dangerous frontier. Trained as a Logic Engineer, she’s responsible for maintaining computers across the colony, but the latest software bug may be more than it seems… and her efforts to fix it will determine the future of her entire world.
Thanks to Booktrack’s very cool tech, the full story has a soundtrack designed, edited, and most likely horribly mangled by yours truly… so hop on over, give the story a read, and maybe give me your vote if you’re feeling generous!
