Happy Hint Fiction Anthology Day! (Belated, but still...)

It's official - Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer is out!  (Its actual birthday was November 1st.)

Now, I've seen it for myself, but I still can't believe that my story, "The Empty Nest," is between the same covers as work by Joyce Carol Oates and Peter Straub and Tess Gerritsen.  And, after reading the entire book, I am also so proud to be alongside some truly amazing stories by other "emerging writers."

You should be able to find the anthology on the shelves of your local chain bookstore or you can order it from the usual suspects - Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders.  But don't forget your local independent store!  My favorite independent has the anthology on the shelf, facing out. (That's a big deal - it's like face time for a book.)

Thanks to everyone who's bought it, talked about it, and read it.  Thanks, too, to everyone who read one of the stories and was moved by it in some way - whether you loved it, or were puzzled by it, or your heart ached because of it.  If you were moved, the story served its purpose.


  1. Happy Hint Fiction Anthology Day to you, Madeline! I'm proud to be with you in this terrific little book.

  2. Congrats, Madeline! I've been offline for several days and missed this post. Be sure to celebrate! YAY!

  3. No problem, Stacy. Thanks for the congratulations!
