At the first of every month, we take a quick break from sharing short stories to talk about what is happening in the Short Fiction Break community. Events in the writing lives of our Regular Contributors and Alumni are below. If you are an SFB reader, we want to know what is going on with you too. Leave us a link to work you are proud of in the comments.
SFB Senior Editor Bob Moulesong has entered into a publishing agreement with Penlt Publications, a small press publisher located in Indiana. They have agreed to publish three of Bob’s children’s books. The series will be titled The Adventures of Rugs. The theme of the series is designed to help youngsters (2-5) accept others who may have their own internal issues to deal with (ADHD, fears, insecurities, or self-esteem issues to name a few). Bob started the series for his grandchildren, and is excited to be sharing it with the world. Keep an eye out for more news on this upcoming series. To check out Bob’s work on SFB, click here.
