What are the similarities between them? Sometimes you can go ages without one and then several arrive at once. I seem to have hit a plentiful patch.
    My feature on taglines: how to write them and why you need them, is now online at http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com. I also have a story, retitled 'Ready, Steady, Chop!' in the July issue of Take a Break's Fiction Feast. There's news of two other publications I can look forward to. 'The Enchantress's Pets; has been accepted for Horrified Press's After-lines anthology, and I've won the fantasy section of The Binnacle's 13th Ultra-Short competition–proof that lightning can strike twice in the same place. The Ultra-Short competition is free to enter, and with a word limit of 150 words, it's a fun challenge. You can find the details at http://www.umm.maine.edu/binnacle.
    Some of my stories are 'unpublished' at the moment. 'Patterns in the Sand', 'Follow that Car!', 'Between Lives', 'The Bitter Harvest', 'Bare Earth' and 'The Cup that Refreshes' had all been on Alfie Dog Fiction for some while and I thought it was time for a change. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do with them. Thank you to everyone who downloaded them. The site supports Medical Detection Dogs, so if you enjoy short stories, take a look at the huge variety it still offers.
    Those who prefer a longer read can help themselves to a FREE download of Discord's Child, which is included in the Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale throughout July. Go to https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/ksdearsley, click on the novel's page and you'll find a coupon.
    This is the kind of being busy I like–bring it on!
