Published on Ether Books

I have recently had some of my short stories published by Ether Books
Ether books is a free to download iphone/ipod touch and ipad app from the app store. It is full of short stories from already established authors and as they put it, “Up and coming authors” It's simple to download onto your phone/pad or touch and means you can read with your coffee or whilst travelling on public transport. You can even read a quick one whilst standing in a queue somewhere.
There are stories on the app which you can download free and if you like the work from that particular author, you can download a longer piece for only a few pence.

I was thrilled to be accepted by Ether Books for publication on their app, in fact, the emails I sent to Mike of Ether Books were a little on the giddy side.
Two of my “flash fiction” sized pieces were on there first and are free to download and this week a longer piece was added into the Urban Horror section at a cost of 59p. I have an author bio on their website here, which wow, got me all giddy again seeing the word author and my name in the same sentence!

I have only just started writing so this is a big thing for me. I would love your support if you could check out the app (Again – it's free to download) It's been an amazing experience for me and one I have thoroughly enjoyed.


  1. Rebecca, Congratulations...This is a great way to start off as an emerging writer. I'm very interested in flash fiction. Can you post your pieces here so I can read them?

  2. Congratulations! I shall go and check the app out now!

  3. Congratulations Rebecca. Well done to you. That's great news. xx

  4. Congratulations!

    Always great to hear this!

  5. Yay! Good job...that's really exciting. I've been writing flash for years, and it can be a hard sell in the market, but because of mobile apps like this, the market has expanded. Good for you!!

  6. Congrats, might ave to steel my bf's iphone and see about this app.

  7. Well done Rebecca! I've the app downloading now!

  8. Nancy - Thank you. I really am thrilled to be published this way and quite soon after I started writing. I'm not sure if I can post them here now. I heard yesterday from someone that there are thoughts afoot for Ether to expand to Android and Blackberry though.

    Pippa - Thank you! Did you find the app? It really is quite a neat looking and functioning app.

    Maria - Thank you. I am still really pleased with this. Particularly as I haven't been writing long.

    Cynthia - Thank you. It's great isn't it!

    Netta - The short story/flash fiction market is shrinking, but this app is perfect!

    Patricia - Thanks. It really is a great little app! :)

    Susan - It's a great app! Thanks :)
