BookWomen and BookMen

The Austin Launch of The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Fiction took place last Friday at BookWoman. In spite of the uncharacteristic (albeit much-needed) torrential rain, it was standing room only. Intrepid bookseller Allison introduced the event...
...and then I introduced everybody else and read an essay from the Field Guide by the inimitable Ron Carlson, plus the story "I Love Bocce" from our latest greatest chapbook How Some People Like Their Eggs by Sean Lovelace...
Next, Robert Shapard read some Latin American and American Latino short shorts, as well as his own story from the Field Guide......and then special guest and newly minted Austinite (Austinian?) Elizabeth Crane read some of her finest flashes... Last but not least was special guest Elizabeth Harris reading a series of short shorts, plus a super-short novel excerpt:

Thanks so much to all the readers and to BookWoman for hosting us, and to everyone who braved the weather to come hear us do our thing!
