Happy International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day!

Thanks to reading tapestry01‘s LJ, I’m reminded that today marks the 3rd annual International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day. According to author Jo Walton, who founded this festive occasion in 2007, the purpose of IPSTD is “to encourage writers to post “professional quality” works for free on the internet.” The reasons for this are made clear in the Wiki article.

I haven’t seen much in the way of folks celebrating this occasion again this year, but I’ll go ahead and post links to stuff of mine that you can read for free. For last year, I was able to direct folks to the first three chapters of my ongoing flash fiction serial, “Stayin’ In Vegas,” which no reside in the warm confines of writer Christopher Pimental, online noir zine, Bad Things:

“Stayin’ in Vegas”
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

New since last year’s festivities are Parts 4-6:

Part 4
Part 5
Part 6

Chris has Part 7 waiting in the wings, and I’ve finished Part 8. I may finish Part 9 later this month, depending on my schedule.

So, get on with your techopeasant self!
