It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

Thanks Raquel! Awesome. I like "Flash Fiction Fusion"... What about Flash Fusion? or Fusion Flash?

I like "Flash Fiction Fusion"... What about Flash Fusion? or Fusion Flash?

My two cents, George: I know you felt Flash Forward sounded too much like SF.  I feel that Flash Fusion or Fusion Flash is just as science fiction-y as Flash Forward.  Perhaps more. 

'Forward' can make people think of time travel, certainly.  But 'Fusion' can make people think of, well, a gazillion other SF tropes.

My vote is for Flash Forward.

Well, as an SF author, I'd be pleased if the title attracted SF readers. However, independently of that I think that Flash Fusion sounds better than Flash Forward.
What about Flash Flood? Or would that make people think it was about disaster stories?

I like Flash Flood. I think that's clever, and it wouldn't be on a cover that says disaster so the two combined would tell the story - especially when the subtitle part (30 shorts or whatever) is added.

I think Flash Flood is OK as long as there is something about "short stories" (or even "very short stories") on the cover too. Flash fiction presumably makes sense to all of us, but I'm fairly sure non-writer readers have little or no clue what "flash fiction" is, and -- thanks to various interpretations of "flash" -- our intended meaning of "flash fiction" is not immediately obvious. But, everyone knows what a short story is. Without that bit that seems redundant to us, our target market of general readers might be put off by something that just looks like a weird title.

Oh, and... "bump."

26 submissions. Many of those include multiple stories. Also, I haven't counted mine in there. I'll be submitting three. And I believe there is one other author, at least, who hasn't yet submitted. The next thing authors can expect from me is a draft of the anthology so you can help me proofread. :)

Thanks for the clarification. Looking forward to receiving the draft copy.

How nice of you! Thanks! How do you think you might brand the anthology, what angle might take you with it, do you think?

I'd have to play with it, but a close up image or an artsy bold colored illustration instead of a scene or action would fit the broad spectrum better.

she-la-ti-da was the first to volunteer to work on the cover, so she's is in charge of that. I'm going to defer to her judgment whenever possible on the question of the cover.

Ahh, sorry. Didn't realize someone else had offered to help.  Just saw the thread and was intrigued.

It's kind of a team effort and I'm definitely interested in your help and appreciative of your offer. I just want to respect the fact that she-la-ti-da has been on the cover question now for awhile. I'm sure she'll check in soon and let us know her thoughts.
