Kathleen Collins’s Realm Walker characters battle a mage-induced, Bing Crosby-infected White Christmas #FlashFiction #CMCon17
Kathleen is my latest victim in the 2017 Coastal Magic Convention Flash Fiction Challenge, and—thanks to my holiday-fueled excitement—her prompts were a doozy! Here's what I threw her way...

Muscle watching at the beach with Astrid from Asa Maria Bradley’s Viking Warrior Rebel #CMCon17 #FlashFiction #giveaway
When Asa and I started talking about this post a few months ago, we both thought that something Election Day themed could be fun. I told her I'd reserved a special "glitter bomb prompt" just for her as well...which I found amusing, Asa maybe not so much. *giggle* But US election politics have taken a nasty turn as of late, and that joking mood just isn't in the air anymore. So instead of incorporating the original prompt of "an unconventional election", Asa is taking us to the beach with the athletes of the Ironman Triathlon! WOOO, MUSCLES! Yesss....

Author JB Lynn shows us how fun Fundies can be at a chilly beach seance with a slightly neurotic hitwoman #CMCon17 #FlashFiction #giveaway
Just the title, Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman, makes me giggle. I figured any story bold enough to use that long and unique of a title must be born from a healthy sense of humor, and boy was I right! JB "Jen" Lynn is one of my 2017 Coastal Magic Convention Featured Authors, and when I sent her these prompts for her Flash Fiction post, I wondered how the Fundies would go over. But not to worry AT ALL, because Jen took every prompt I gave and worked them into a gem of a story!
Take a few minutes to read this one, folks: it's hilarious! =D

Find out how Stephen Osborne’s Raven’s Rest characters connect Harry Potter to a ghost #giveaway #CMCon17 #FlashFiction
Please help me Stephen Osborne, author of the chilling gay romance Raven's Rest! When I saw the sort of stories Stephen writes, I knew I wanted to feature him on GT. Not only do I LOVE male/male romances, that extra spooky ghost element can really push the story's intensity over the top! In the tradition of my Coastal Magic 2017 Featured Authors, my challenge to Stephen was to write a piece of flash fiction that satisfied as many of the following requirements as possible...
