Featured Flash Fiction
I write a lot of flash fiction – most Fridays, in fact. Mine is always exactly 100 words long. You can find much more of it in the archive, and you can download my free ebooks 100 Not Out and 200 Not Out. If you'd like to give it a try yourself, visit the site I also edit, Friday Flash Fiction.

“So… why we should select your country?”
“Your country imprisons gay people. Potentially death penalty. And political opponents.”
“Many migrant workers have died building your stadiums. And it’s far too hot.”
Again, silence. Instead, an open suitcase wordlessly appeared on the table containing $5 million. The Chairman studied it carefully.
“I think your bid has been successful, gentlemen.”
Everyone smiled and shook hands.
