I’m on a Roll

Last summer I wrote like crazy and produced a lot of new work. I have been submitting all that work and it is just now starting to get attention. This week I happened to have three short stories published in three different online magazines.

EIGHTY FIVE DAYS is one of my favorites.

Carve Magazine

Carve Magazine does this wonderful thing where they list stories they rejected that later get accepted by another publisher. I made their 2015 listing: they rejected my short story PEACH POLYESTER PANTSUIT but it was recently published by Short Fiction Break.
