Peter Coyote will be at the Fayetteville Public Library Friday night. Rumor has it he came to town in search of humor writing tips for his next book. At the urging of Pen-L Publishing and my cousin, JB Hogan (whose new book, Living Behind Time, is zooming up the charts), I have agreed to attend and meet Mr. Coyote.
I assume Peter is hoping to capitalize on the same type of success as achieved by Dave Barry after our meeting two years ago. Since that time, all of Dave’s new books have debuted on the Best Seller list and even his older, less funny, material has experienced a bump in sales. I wish I could take credit for that, but I’m just too humble.
If you’re new to Friday Flash Fiction, our Headmistress and author of the soon-to-be-released novel, Please Say Kaddish For Me, is Danielle Steele Brown Wisoff-Fields. If you’d like to participate in this exercise of madness, head over to her blog for step-by-step instructions. To view the FFF Hollywood Squares Authors Block click here.

“Today the victory will be ours.” Khalid puffed out his chest. “You will bring honor and glory to your family and redeem the death of your brother.”
“Momar was a good egg.” Anger fed the hatred gnawing at Ramzi’s craw.
“There, the bald one. He is your target. Make the infidel pay.”
“I will teach him to fear the name, Ramzi bin al-Pigeon.”
