Have a read through Sally’s post  below, where she introduces the promotion:

In 2016 I would like to celebrate the short stories, novellas and anthologies that are published.

Like many of us, I began by writing short stories.  I recently found a scribbled tale from 30 years ago at a time when I was busy working 12 hour days and falling into bed exhausted. Just goes to show the power of that craving to write will be satisfied, whatever the circumstances.

It was clear in the last year that short stories are still a strong sector of publishin; as is the novella. However, I don’t believe that they and the anthologies that are published are getting as much promotion as they should.  That seems to be particularly true of community anthologies which contain amazing stories by fabulous writers.

The short story is a very important part of our writing culture and if we look back to our childhood it was fairy tales and bedtime stories that introduced us to reading and writing.

  1. Finally, the mysterious secret: I can LIKE posts via my phone but not my desktop. Something weird with WordPress! Anyway, thanks for this and all your posts supporting fellow writers this year.

    1. Thanks John. And here’s a little trick I learned a few weeks ago when I noticed I couldn’t ‘like’ from my desktop anymore: I now log in with Chrome. I noticed I had problems on twitter also lately on Explorer. It’s smooth sailing with Google Chrome browser! Merry Christmas. 🙂

  2. Hip, Hip Hooray for Novellas and short stories! I like to pack a lot of punch in a shorter read. They just seem to come out that way.

    Deb, thank you for your encouragement on my latest book. After writing the Preface the other day, I was no longer hesitant. And you said exactly what I’m hoping for – that it speaks to someone who needs it.

    Blessings,
    Marianne
