Five Stories, Four Lit Mags, Tons of Gratitude

This fall was a big one for publication; Split Lip just published a new flash piece called The Other Norma Jean;” Heavy Feather Review published (in print!) two stories; and Nice Cage solicited a story from me–this one’s called “The Rule of Monsters.” Finally, the humor lit-mag Defenestration reprinted “Now Hiring at the Hog Trough” from Flatland. Whew! Thanks to all who supported these stories!

If you’re around Decatur, IL that weekend, I’d love to see you there!

Books & Tea, September 28

Looking forward to being a part of Boulder’s long-standing Books & Tea event as one of two fiction readers–the other being my friend the great Nick Arvin (Mad Boy). Always fun to meet a whole bunch of new readers, especially a group that’s so invested in new writing that they’ll come out on a Saturday afternoon in September.

At the Inkwell Reading

Happy to be a part of the fiction crew reading at Denver’s At the Inkwell reading series this weekend. It’s Saturday, July 20 from 5-7PM up at BookBar. Hope to see you there! (By the way, BookBar is the exclusive retailer for Flatland here locally–and they’re good folks doing great literary service to the community to boot. Support them!)
