Don’t let the name fool you. Flash fiction is a form of storytelling that requires concise and precise plot and character development. An author takes on the challenge of telling an engaging story in 1k words or less.
Contrary to popular belief, that’s not an easy thing—but the authors in the soon-to-be-released Shades of AMBW: Asian Man, Black Woman Short Story Collection (published by Love Journey Book) share flash fiction as well as shorter microfiction stories featuring Asian men and Black women.
I love the Asian Men Black Women Interracial Romance genre and I also love short stories. Shades of AMBW is a fun way for new and experienced writers to come together and add to the AMBW literary world. Besides being an excellent collaboration opportunity, the challenge of writing micro-fiction and flash-fiction is a great creative exercise. I am always looking for new and inventive ways to grow.
The last AMBW short story collection I remember was published in 2008, Honey Flava by Zane. What has never been done is AMBW microfiction, flash fiction, or a collection by various authors. Now it has! – Love Journey
I am extremely honored that Spivey selected two stories I submitted to be a part of this collection. I was initially daunted by the idea of attempting to write a story with such limited page space. Just fine-tuning description without resorting to an onslaught of telling was quite a strain on my skillsets, but I did find it beneficial in expanding my writing acumen.
