Small Surprises, an Instant Book by Lita Kurth

drawing of a lizard bride looking at a brownieWe’re happy to announce that we have published our newest Instant Book, Small Surprises by Flash Fiction Forum co-founder Lita Kurth. Small Surprises includes two flash fiction stories, “The Bride” and “Life Is a Mystery.”

Instant Books are limited edition miniature books with complete stories inside. Folded from a single sheet of paper, they fit in the palm of your hand, but they’re sturdy enough to read and share.

Thinking Ink Press member Anthony Francis created the cover art for Small Surprises, and Instant Book designer Keiko O’Leary created the book layout. She selected the typography and paper, and hand-folded each book.

Small Surprises will be available for sale at the next Flash Fiction Forum on March 8 at 7:00 p.m. at SJ/Works Gallery, 365 S. Market St. in San Jose, CA.

You can also buy copies by contacting keiko@thinkinginkpress.com.
