SEPTEMBER ONE runner up in Aqueous Magazine 2015 Flash Fiction Contest

This is a new one: I actually placed one of my stories in a contest. Big thanks to Aqueous Magazine, “a literary and visual arts magazine for the Lake Superior region,” for selecting “September One” as the runner up in their 2015 Flash Fiction Contest. The theme was “first times.”

Something new for you to read, something I wrote, is available in the Spring 2015 issue of Watershed Review (CSU, Chico’s literary publication).

Special thanks to Sarah Pape and the rest of the editorial team at Watershed Review. I look forward to reading the issue in its entirety and sharing the gems I’m confident I’ll find (you know I will).

And hey. You. Let me know what you think. Comments section below. Twitter (@pen_tight). Facebook. I just want to hear from you. I just want to engage. Feels like no one ever does–prove me wrong.

WE SHOOT HERE published in Flyleaf Journal

It brings me joy to share my latest (illustrated!) publication with you, “We Shoot Here,” available now from Flyleaf Journal.

At present, .pdf and Kindle versions are available for purchase–I anticipate the print version to come available in the next few weeks. I would be jazzed–DJ Jazzy Jeff–if you checked out the excerpt below, picked up the story (for 99 cents!), and then sent your hate-mail my way.

I’d like to give a special shout to Matthew Jankiewicz and the rest of the staff at Flyleaf Journal–thank you for giving my work such a lovely home. And I would be terribly, terribly remiss if I did not mention Jenna Hobbs, who illustrated this issue–wonderful wonderful wonderful. I’m giddy and fascinated and grateful.

PS I will post another update once the Kindle and print versions are available, in case anyone is interested in picking up a copy.
