Thrilled to announce my flash fiction memoir “The Honey Clusters” garnered an honorable mention (4th place!) in the 2015 Bethlehem Writers Roundtable Short Story Contest. The work will be featured in their November/December 2015 issue!
Huge thank-you’s to all my wonderful critique partners over at Scribophile for helping make the piece shine.
I’m also happy to announce that my piece ‘Days to Go Before I Sleep’ got an honourable mention in the Molotov Cocktail‘s April 2015 Flash Fool Contest. You can read it here. Other stories are currently out on submission to various journals and other contests. I’ll be posting results as soon as someone tells me something. Meanwhile, below is a list of publications, contest wins, and a few tidbits that happened in between novel revisions and other flash pieces.
Update: 27 January 2016
The year is off to a good start, with three new publications in January. I’m happy to be back at Maudlin House, Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Inquiry, and Five2One Magazine’s The Sideshow with some brand new pieces, including the third installment in Alice’s Autobiography. Also, my musically-inspired flash fiction “Ways to Make Me Leave You” will be published by the wonderful Pidgeonholes in March.
In the meantime, I have a short story about the exclusivity of a small southern town out on submission to several higher-tier markets and have finished the draft of another southern-themed short called “Kingdom Come” that I’m especially proud of.
