Official Launch of Cover Designs by Kayla Curry!

Alright, I'm ringing in the New Year with an Official Cover Designs by Kayla Curry Launch Party on New Year's Day!

During that day I'll be taking concepts from anyone who needs a cover. So if you are publishing a book soon or even a short story, pitch me your cover concept from now until New Year's Day in the comments field below. I'll pick at least one to do for free!

I'll also be on twitter, talking about cover design and art throughout the day. Hope to see you there!

New Direction

Well it seems that there isn't much interest for the flash fiction challenges, so if I do not receive any flash fiction pieces this month I will be turning this site into a base of operations for my cover art and a few other small projects.

If I do get some flash fiction pieces for the December challenge, I will have to figure out if it is worth it or not for me to put time and energy into the challenges. That will depend on the number of flash fiction pieces I get if I get them.

So, thank you to Thomas Winship and Jacob Donley for being the only two to ever enter these challenges, you guys are awesome and your flash fiction is too!

December Challenge

December is a "Bad Writing" challenge.

Sometimes we need to get some bad writing out of our system before we can get on with the good writing. That is what these Bad Writing Flash Fiction Challenges are for.

Write a Flash Fiction piece that is 500 words or less that fits the "Bad Writing" prompt. Bad writing in this case does not mean bad grammar, poor spelling and horrible punctuation. Bad writing in this case just means these stories aren't meant to be good stories. All stories that follow the prompt will be posted for voting.

The prompt for December is to write the worst love scene you can think of.

When submitting your flash fiction, submit story, with your name and links to any sites you want posted with your story including author website, links to books, link to your blog, links to facebook and twitter, and any others you can think of.

Send all of these in the BODY of the email. I will not open attachments unless I know the sender personally or request them. The email to send these to will be They are due by December 31, 2012 at 11:59pm.

Winners will receive web badges, feature interview with links to their website, books and social medias, a feature on the Winners Page and one book chosen by the author to be featured on the side panel, along with some twitter promoting.
