PLOTTO: The Master Contest of All Plots
The publishing house Tin House has started a new challenge that runs weekly.
Every Wednesday we will post a prompt from William Wallace Cook’s classic how to manual Plotto: The Master Book of All Plots on the Tin House blog. Simply use the given prompt you find there to write your own original 500 word story.
I intend to enter it regularly. Any entries that do not win (chuckle) will be added to my 50¢ Flash series
. I have already entered the first with the story Goodie Two-Shoes
. Let’s see how it goes.

I have started a new series titled 50 Cent Flash.
These will be short-short stories of under 2000 words. I tried to make them available at 50¢ each. Unfortunately, this is impossible under current marketing conditions. So I have started a series of anthologies of 3 or 4 stories that will be available on iBooks and Lulu. Later, there will be collections of three anthologie on Amazon. (Amazon’s royalty structure forces this.)
Also, I will have audio versions available as well.
NOTE: Publishing June 4 (I hope). vol 1: TWIST
