Friend. Follow. Text

I have a short story appearing in a book called Friend. Follow. Text #Storiesfromlivingonline – out in October. Here’s the blurb:

Tales told through texting. Pinterest prose, LinkedIn lit, irony over Instagram – or Facebook flash fiction. Friend. Follow. Text is a short-fiction anthology that explores the intersection between social media and literature. This book brings together highly creative work whose content and form are inspired by social media – great, often funny writing that moves beyond using digital forms as mere gimmicks.
