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.

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

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

Thank you to Michael Barrett and the rest of the editorial staff at The Austin Review for finding merit in my work–it was a pleasure working with you. As always, I am here to discuss, to read feedback, to engage in any way any of you see fit.

Else where’s the fun?

Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal now available in print

If you follow this blog, you might have read my story “Ill Not in the Mind,” published online as a preview to the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal. Or maybe you’ve ignored all this completely. Fine. But if you’re looking for a literary journal to hold in your hands, one that will twist you and turn you and make you ache, order a copy of the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal, now available in print.

The theme of this issue is the burden of home. Get’s you thinking, doesn’t it? There are so many ways to approach this theme, and some of the most compelling are represented in this issue of PRJ–the gut-wrenching, challenging stuff that I live for.

I’m honored to be a part of this issue.
