Competition is hotting up over at authoretica, where I’m giving away a signed and dedicated copy of ‘Deja Vu’ to the best flash fiction piece (50 words max, not easy) along the theme of ‘Deja Vu’. If you want to give it a go, check out the competition rules and some of the entries.
Things are moving on apace with Deja Vu. The release date has been firmed up as 31st January, 2005. It was a long time coming, but then editing and publishing a book is no easy process. I think it’s a measure of how committed are the folks at the UKA Press that they spend so long helping the authors get their books just right. Most of their authors, of course, can only write in their spare time, which slows the process somewhat. However, Anthony (head honcho at the UKA Press) has suggested that proof copies should be available within the next couple of weeks. Finally, I’ll have this book in my hands. I wonder if I will feel elation or just plain relief.
