Indigo here. How's it going?
After the expository excesses of Part Three of The Long Road Home, I'm relieved that I can now post something short and simple. As are you, I'm sure.
I'm delighted to report that one of my tales has found its way into print. Yes, the Cup Of Joe Coffee House Flash Fiction Collection Vol 1 by Indie publisher Wicked East Press contains a tale by yours truly. It's a proper book, with pages, words, an ISBN number and a barcode.
They even put my story near the end of the book.
Top of the bill? Not quite, but damned close.
See how happy I am?
I'm not going to tell you which tale they published, of course, as you'd just go and read it here. Though if you're determined, you could read everything I've ever posted.*
[* Let me know how that goes, okay? It'll take a couple of days, and a lot of coffee and cake. Please remember to post some comments on the way through. And to save me some cake.]
Anyway, if you fancy owning a slice of publishing history - yes, I really do have big plans for a worldwide bestseller - go wander over and support all of the 100-odd writers that contributed to this excellent book. This includes my good friend Ms. Fin (hey Letisia!) whose piece is achingly elusive and beautiful.
Currently, the book can be bought from:
- Amazon USA
- Amazon UK
- Barnes & Noble
None of us will see a penny for our effort, but it's excellent exposure and a good-looking volume. And whether you like the book or not, you'll be doing us and other customers a great service by leaving a review.
See you soon, thanks for listening,

That is freaking amazing!! I am heading over there now!ReplyDelete
Congrats, Indigo!!! (And thank you for including me in your post!) So we won't be rich but, hey, we're in print! Yay!ReplyDelete
I'm doing a happy dance for you right now! (And as soon as I'm done with the dance, I'm ordering the book.)ReplyDelete
this from the guy who said he wasn't certain blogging would be a good idea when i suggested it to him... ;) i am proud of you my friend. enjoy the sparkles! =)ReplyDelete
love ya! annie x
Well done. A fitting acolade to your talent and creativity. Your stuff is very easy to read and can absorb large amounts of time that should be rightfully employed elsewhere. I bet your contribution to the book will be a favourite of its readers. I just hope none of them snort hot coffee while they're reading!ReplyDelete
Well dammit, my earlier reply to all of these is missing. Arse. And trying to remember what I wrote denies any attempt at spontaneity...ReplyDelete
Hey Kato! Thank you, I'm pretty chuffed. I'll be sure to drop into Toronto when I'm on my world book signing tour.
Hey Ms. Fin! My pleasure! And it's only fitting; had you not mentioned the anthology, I never would have submitted anything. So it's all your fault.
Hey BoomBoom! Hang on, I'll join you! Yes, that's the stuff! Just you, me and Snoopy.
Hey Eolist! Yes, you certainly did give me a hefty nudge. And I thank you for it. Oooh, do I get sparkles?!
Hey Alistair! You're too kind, Sir. I just need to get another couple of hundred people to read my entries, and we might be onto something. I may even go viral, whatever that means.
Thanks to you all! Indigo
What, you don't leave the ISBN, so now I have to actually go type the title into a search. If I can even get it here. I don't know...okay, I guess I can figure out how to get a copy.ReplyDelete
Hey Joshua, I included the link to their website, which is currently the only way to buy. I couldn't find it on Google or Amazon or anywhere else. Wanted to be more helpful, but couldn't! IndigoReplyDelete
Well...for the US buyers then: http://www.amazon.com/Coffee-House-Flash-Fiction-Collection/dp/1617061190/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=IRMPDHH1RX3XU&colid=NHA517GOK8SUReplyDelete
Thanks Joshua, that wasn't there yesterday. No equivalent on Amazon UK as yet, but the original link I posted gives service from both the UK and USA. Mine are UK copies, though the publisher is based in the States. IndigoReplyDelete
Hey, Indigo! Congratulations and thanks for the note in your latest post because I had indeed missed this one. Now I know what to add to my pending Amazon order so I qualify for free shipping!ReplyDelete
Thank you Nancy. If you reread the entry, I've added a few more links for purchasing, including Barnes & Noble.
By the way, I've finally decided today to create my first solo book, harvesting material from my first two years of blogging and transforming them into a broader narrative with an underlying plot.
You heard it here first, ma'am =)
A well deserved accolade!! And exciting news to hear that a book of pure Roth may come to be too! Could be happier for you :)ReplyDelete
Hey Robbie! You're excited by the prospect of mainlining on pure Roth? Careful what you wish for - if you read it all together you might realise just how samey it all is ;> But thank you! IndigoReplyDelete
OH.MY.GOD! This is so awesome! I really need to pay closer attention.ReplyDelete
Now I can say, "I knew him when..."
Hey Chrissy! Thank you, I'm a bit giddy about it myself, despite being just one of a hundred authors in the book. Hey baby, I'm Published! And yes, you can tell everyone about how I'd have been hopeless as a writer without you! Indigo xReplyDelete
Sorry folks, BLOGGER's had a bad day and lost some comments. Let's play catchup:ReplyDelete
