Title: Pink Snowbunnies Ski in Hell
Word count: 1,000

A sleep-deprived author mixes up her metaphors. A graphic designer has too much time on his hands. Twenty writers, fueled by copious amounts of chocolate, dream up quirky, funny, and occasionally creepy stories.
And the Pink Snowbunnies in Hell Flash-Fiction Anthology was born.
These are very short stories, under a thousand words each. Some have actual bunnies. Some take rather offbeat trips through the underworld. And some just have a character that shares the sleep-deprived author's mixed metaphors. All proceeds from this anthology are going to local animal shelters. Pink snowbunnies can take care of themselves, but thank you for helping us support those animals who do need a little assistance.
"Don't Mess with the Meadow" is the story I submitted that was accepted. Jeanne Miller and I also worked on a story together called "Always Bring References," which was rejected but was still a great idea (kudos to Jeanne on that).
