"B*tch" Is Up At Powder Burn Flash And It Already Has A Four Star Review!

First, my story "Bitch," is up at Powder Burn Flash.com.

Second, you have to don't listen to me about compliments concerning my own material, as I am not the partial bastard. Listen to Geoff Eighinger of Eastern Standard Crime-

Cormac Brown has the keen ability to put me in a literary trance, focusing on the story at hand before literally twisting me into oblivion at the end. This story was no different, narrated by a police officer named Heidi.

"In most situations, they send me in first and quite frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way. They all just slow me down, anyway, so that's probably why they give me such a wide berth when the shit hits the fan.
"


Heidi is a conceited one, boasting about her ability to outshine her male counterparts in every way. After describing her recent capture of an armed robbery suspect, we find something out about Heidi that I should have suspected as a reader but never even considered.Bless you, Mr. Brown. Keep up the hilarious fiction sundaes with big cherry surprises on top.


He gave it four hats Ladies and Gentlemen. Here's the review, and more importantly, here's the story.

Top Ho! is an expression used a lot in P.G.Wodegouse books. Top Ho! on both gigs!

Oh, I liked that. I only expected a twist and figured it our a little before it was revealed because of the review.

I love the 1000 words or less format. I actually read it.

Frieda,

"Oh, I liked that."

Excellent, thanks...

"I only expected a twist and figured it our a little before it was revealed because of the review."

D'oh!

"I love the 1000 words or less format. I actually read it."

That's what I love about Powder Burn Flash as a parent. If you are swamped and you only have six or seven minutes, you can read a story and get back to parenting in time.

Cormac, are you doing Patti Abbot's Flash Fiction comp? I said that I thought you would!

Paulie Decibels,
