Ok, now for news about me.
The Seven Deadly Sins book (collection of Flash Fiction of which two of my short stories belong) is being launched here in Edmonton on April 18. Not sure yet what all the details will be but I will let you know.
The book launch will just be for the hard copy book. Absolute-XPress also publishes in e-book format so the book will be available in that form earlier than the book launch date. Again, once I have more details I will let you know.
I’ll post again soon. I plan on accepting Nixy’s challenge so I’ll post my exercise here.
