I don't normally do this self promotion stuff.  If you pop over and read my interview you'll also find out that I will never publish myself on here either.

Why? you ask.  Go here and I explain everything.

NOTE: The interview is a bit tongue-in-cheek.  I have a couple of characters that I created, The Two Blokes, and they decided to turn up and interview me for a series called, "Dancing With Myself," over at Nigel P. Bird's blog, Sea Minor.

I hope you get a laugh out of it.


Yes, that's me up top, your friend and editor.

* * * * *

As from tomorrow I'm going to be publishing 3 stories a week.  I still have a backlog of great tales to share with you from some great writers.  I have also been receiving emails asking when sub's will be open again.  I can't do that before I break the back of the ones I have waiting in the wings.

Please be patient.

Robert The Arab Girl by Stuart Matthew Davis will be going up tomorrow (22nd Sept) so please pop back and show your support.

There's going to be a Writing Competition!  YES!!! I hear yo cry.  And there'll be prizes.  HOLY FUCK!!! I hear you scream.  Well, I don't.  I'm obviously making that up.

Anyway, details to follow shortly.

* * * * *

When submissions do open, bear in mind that Christmas is pretty much just around the corner.

I love Christmas.  Always have, and since we had our kids I love it even more.

So, lets have some tinsel and death, a pissed-up Santa, muggings and fairy lights.  You get the drift!

* * * * *

OK, that's it.  Thanks, as always, for your continued support.

great job with the TB's grilling you. Can't believe were talking Christmas. Hallowen is also big at the Casa de Reardon. Keep on keepin on, you're on a role!

Steven Chapman said...

Competition? Prize? Religious coitous? WOOO!

Great interview David, although I did get a couple of strange looks for laughing out loud in the office. I want to see The Two Blokes attempts at chatting up The Two Broads!

Oh and speaking of tiling at mates rates… :D

David Barber said...

Thanks, guys. Hopefully there will be a few good prizes for the comp!

If you're willing to put me up, Steven, mates rates can be discussed.

Just read your interview, David. Couldn't have asked for a better editor of FFO. It is a lot of work putting a quality E-zine together and finding time to work on your own stuff. Not to mention the family and the tile biz. You must really have a love for the genre to put yourself through that!

Thank you for all of your hard work.

David Barber said...

Thanks for the support, Dana. Writers like yourself help make the job a lot easier. I'll be here for a good while.

Thomas Pluck said...

That was a great interview David. You do a great job here, and a Christmas contest sounds like a lot of fun!

You're the three funniest prople I know David . . . but what about the dog?

David Barber said...

Thomas - Thanks, buddy. Hopefully, I will have some pretty cool prizes.

AJ - Thanks, man. There is a dog out there waiting to be loved by The Two Blokes.

Thanks for all your support, guys. Appreciate it.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the 'interview'- spiced with humor and stirred with insight. Thanks.
