Got my advance reading copies of FLIT in the mail today! I love how it turned out. I also noticed it is listed for pre-order on Amazon.com. The book comes out for real on October 1, 2015.
Four of my poems from Flit: A Poetry Mashup of Classic Literature
are in Glitterwolf 8: Identity.
So Much To Say To A Younger Generation, The Harvey Milk Doll, Inkpot and Out For Ice Cream can be enjoyed in the magazine on Kindle and paperback.
How cool is that!
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.
A cool publication called Talking Soup just published my short story A THOUSAND SIGNATURES.
My short story HAVE A COOKIE, about a kid and his Mammy cookie jar, was published today at Mad Swirl. I had no idea it was even under consideration. They just published it!
Finalizing the text which will appear on the jacket back of FLIT. The book of poetry will be released October 1.
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.
Two of my poems from FLIT: A POETRY MASHUP OF CLASSIC LITERATURE were published today by The Furious Gazelle.
PEEP SHOW was written using only words found in DH Lawrence’s novel Sons and Lovers.
A BILL WITH THE DEVIL was written using only words from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
It’s been a good week.
My short story ARKANSAS I-40 was accepted for publication by The Fem Literary Magazine and my soon to be released poetry anthology FLIT is getting some more attention. My poems “Peep Show” and “A Bill With The Devil” will appear in Furious Gazelle on February 10.
My mother’s birthday is next week. She would have been 82. By coincidence, a short story inspired by her was published today. PEACH POLYESTER PANTSUIT is fictionalized, but Barbara Milam had the pantsuit and she and I went round and round about it. I kept the pantsuit when she died.
