    While I wish the book would have had more suggestions about how to effectively package and market short stories, overall I found it interesting and full of solid information. Great for a novice writer who is trying to understand the basics of short and flash fiction writing.

    The book focuses more on short stories and, while it contains some helpful information for a beginner, I felt it didn't really cover flash fiction well. Rather, the writer suggested we simply scale down our short story to meet the word count required for flash fiction. I would have liked to see more examples of flash fiction along with some dissection and analysis so, from my point of view, the book somewhat missed its mark.

    Handy Reference The author seems to have covered a lot of ground on the short story and flash fiction. Helpful to be able to know the different word counts pertaining to each style of story. Over all it is a handy reference.

    I'm seeing a trend and I don't like it It seems like there are a lot of books right now that have some decent information sprinkled into a bunch of filler. This is one of those. There are good tidbits but they come mixed in a base of advise that applies to creative writing in general. The author then concludes that it's the same for short fiction but must be scaled down. Duh. I'm seeing a trend and I don't like it It seems like there are a lot of books right now that have some decent information sprinkled into a bunch of filler. This is one of those.

    Some good advice for starting off in flash fiction. However, there could have been some more information or tools for developing characters and setting. The middle part of the booklet was lacking some substance.

    Recommend Good information for anyone wanting to break into the short story market. If you are trying to get your name out there as an author, this is a great way to do it. :-)

    It has good advice for writers, and a useful list of resources for short story and flash fiction publication in the end, but overall the book lacks illustration and examples.

    There are interesting insights on the marketing of short stories, but the part of the craft is too sketchy. I wish the author would have been more specific in actually writing short stories.
