I came across this open call, quite near the end of closing, and I couldn’t pass it up. After a busy day with the family, that night, I could not sleep, which is fairly typical once an idea slithers through my head; the worm in my ear. Giving in to the noise, I fired up the laptop and tried my hand at writing Southeast Asian Fantasy Drabbles.
I wrote and submitted two; ‘Unity’ and ‘Dragon of Krakatau’ to Insignia Stories enticing call and both were accepted. I’m pleased to be included in this line-up of multinational Drabblers, including and compiled by Kelly Matsuura!
Release date to be announced very soon.

I bring to you another teaser from the upcoming release; Concoction V2. This time a quote from one of Andrew Taylor’s short stories written for the prompt ‘Whisky.’
This Concoction of wonderfully diverse short stories will feed your appetite and leave you craving more. You’re not about to get stuck into a collection that fits neatly into one genre. Each story was born of a single word prompt, elements of horror and fantasy are most definitely guaranteed.
Each of these Scottish writers has a unique approach to storytelling. For each story they were given just one word to inspire and create a world of entertainment just for you. You will find pieces born of; Flesh, Blood, Bone and Haunted.
From scoring your poison, whether that be a good escape, drugs, sex or a bit of truth wrapped in a shroud of fiction, there just may well be some unexpected consequences that come along with the ride.
So, get comfy and let us serve you up a wee dram, a Scottish Concoction.
