UK based PopShot Magazine has opened submissions for their next issue with the theme of Romance. They're looking for short stories of 1000 to 2500 words, flash of 300 to 1000 words and drabbles of exactly 100 words in any genre which includes crime fiction. The deadline is November 27, 2017. There's no mention of payment, but since they're a print selling at new stands there is the possibility. That's something you'll have to query. You can find the details here.

I was checking out a market when a title caught my eye and I began to read. "All Apologies to Frida Kahlo" by Mara Grayson is the beautiful story of a daughter trying to understand the madness of her mother in a painting by Frida Kahlo. I know it sounds strange but it makes so much sense as you try to understand how mother/daughter relationships work. In the end we never really understand our mothers until they're gone and we've lost the chance to hold their hand in ours and say "Now, I understand."
And the final awards from Bouchercon, The Anthony Awards. Congratulations to all the winners!!
