“Two Thousand Miles Running” nominated for Queen’s Ferry Press Best Small Fictions of 2015 anthology

I was reading creative non-fiction by Rolf Potts today in Indiana Review and thinking, How do we digitally promote the print literature we love? By just mentioning it to spread the word? Linking to the story or the author’s website (if available)?

This disadvantage is, of course, one of the advantages of digital publications like Cheap Pop. Digital works published by these journals can easily be shared with URL and the author’s Twitter handle/Facebook URL in hand. They can be nominated for awards and anthologies.

So we don’t forget them or let them fade.

In an announcement today, the editors at Cheap Pop (Robert James Russell and Elizabeth Schmuhl) shared their nominations for the Queen’s Ferry Press Best Small Fictions of 2015 anthology.  My story “Two Thousand Miles Running” is among the nominees. Not only am I honored, I’m extra jazzed that small markets and presses are taking the time to promote the little pieces of people’s hearts floating around out there. It means a lot to someone like me, as I’m sure it does the other nominees.

“Jellyfish” by Zara Lisbon
“Paint Job” by Tatiana Ryckman
“Heat Wave” by Aki Schilz
“Nettle Creek Cemetery” by Eric Shonkwiler

Bravo to all these talented writers. I look forward to reading more of their work in the future, and wish them best of luck.

Glad to be considered among you.
