Update for Readers

Issue 1/2015

An update for lovers of contemporary fiction from author Dave Cornford.
Flash Fiction February

The best ideas are crazy ones.

So here goes.  In February, I’m writing a flash fiction piece every day. I’m also going to record a reading of it for the Live-Fiction podcast, which will be updated daily as well.

Each piece will be under 150 words, and will be inspired by three “things” contributed by readers. I’ve got a few already written to get things started, and about half of the three-word prompts already contributed by friends and family. After that, it’s up to you. Let me know your three things by email or a comment on facebook.

The first story is inspired by these three things (thanks Jo): band-aid, coffee, sunshine, while the second one is inspired by caravan, treadmill and BBQ.

Check out the blog or Facebook daily, or subscribe to the podcast and join in the fun!

New Release - January

Believe it or not, the 17th Man has already released his book based on the India Tour - Four Captains and a Funeral.  Ebook AND paperback are OUT NOW!

Australia & India Battle it Out

After the tragic loss of a team mate, can Australia avenge their 0-4 series loss in India in 2013?
Follow the 17th Man as he travels around Australia, chronicling the tour with his quirky and insightful pen.
Both teams lost a great captain - one through injury, one through retirement - and both were blessed with the emergence of a new captain - each one young, brash and leading from the front with prolific and flamboyant run scoring. 
All the triumph and controversy is here – the farewells and the follies, the roads and roadblocks, captains and caftans, centuries and “centre thanks”, the sledging and the edging. 
Been Reading . . .
Over the Christmas break I've had a chance to catch up on some reading.  I really enjoyed The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion. These are stories written in the first person voice of character who is a probably a high-functioning person with Aspergers or autism. The books are funny, engaging and challenging, and highly recommended.
