Innovation – The Anthology Stories

Innovation teaser

Hey all…

The judges have met to pick the contest winners, and Angel and I have gotten together to pick the anthology stories for this year’s Flash Fiction contest. We’re sharing the story and author names for the anthology picks today.

Here’s the reveal schedule:

6/29: Honorable Mentions
7/13: Cover Reveal
7/27: Judge’s Choices
8/8: Top Three Winners, Release Day

I’m giving you a little taste of the cover above – still tweaking it, but we’re getting there. :)

We had a great crop of stories this year – 233 in all – and winnowing it down to just 120 was a difficult task. Thanks to all who entered, and if you didn’t make it in this year, we hope to see something from you in 2021!

So, without further ado, here are the “Innovation” anthology stories in order by author last name. Congrats to all!
