Shameless self “Promotion”

Two really exciting things just happened and, right now, I really don’t know which has got me gibbering most. One is an extraordinary convergence in the technologies that will underpin our next research bid (and look out world, if we’re successful, because this will change the way we get information from hospitals and doctors for ever). The other is my first fiction publication outside of the recent NOT competition and it feels like my kid came home from their first day at school with an A* in higher maths! So which to choose? Well, in fairness, there’s no showing off to be had with the research yet as it’s at the ideas stage and will have to be costed til it squeaks to get a sniff at any funding. So that leaves the blatant, unashamed, trumpeting of my lovely (in its mother’s eye) flash piece with its not-so-lovely MC. Find ‘Promotion’ here at the very lovely Powfastfiction.

I thank you (bows dramatically and sweeps off stage leaving wafting evidence of ego-glitter and, in this instance, alien entrails)

  1. Congratulations, Suzanne. What a thrill!

    And a nicely chilling story with a twist for a woman who has survived all odds. Perfect title, too.

  2. Thank you! Mean little bad-ass, isn’t she? Might have some explaining to do with a new colleague who post-dates the story but has the same name. What were the odds, eh?

  3. Congrats on the story, very well written and creative and I liked the character, a real bad-ass indeed lol.

  4. Promotion is a GREAT read Suzanne.

    *hands you a bigger megaphone*

    Stand on a rooftop and shout your newest publication credit out to the world. But be sure to wear non slip shoes.
    [safety first]

    1. Ha! I’ll get myself some of those grippy socks they tell us people in Norway wear all the time for reckless cavorting on inadvisable surfaces! :-))

  5. Thank you, it’s been a while in the hatching but I’m ridiculously pleased with it! I’m finding I do rather like writing unpleasant characters, which is slightly alarming πŸ™‚

  6. Well done Suzanne, and what a doozy of a story. I can’t say I “liked” it, but it had impact, and made me go ‘ouch’. Nice work!

  7. I think not liking it is probably a plus in this case so thank you for going ‘ouch’, much appreciated πŸ™‚
