New Story

My flash story 'No smoke without fire' is up on Every Day Fiction today as part of Fire Safety Week.

Matt, the Significant Other Writer in the Cowens household, had his story up earlier this week and no doubt will be podcasting one or both of them soon. Fire Safety is here in its current, exciting text-only format.

While it may seem like it'd be an incendiary* situation for a couple to have their stories up on a website with readers' ratings in the same week (his story's scored higher than mine!), we both care too deeply about the issue of fire safety awareness to allow petty egos get in the way.

Obviously, there is a small degree of paranoia that our house will burn down tonight in a blaze of irony.

*Sorry. Fire-based puns have a habit of flaring up.

Thanks. Some days I just can't resist a pun or two. :-)

Debbie's story has snuck out in front (3.8/5 to 3.7/5). Where will the stories sit at the end of Fire Prevention Week? It's nail-biting stuff!
