It’s Finally Happened!

Well, folks, it’s finally happened. After a dry spell of about 12 months, I finally have a new story publication under my belt. It’s up at wigleaf.com and I couldn’t be happier. Wigleaf was one of the first flash fiction journals I read when I began writing flash 5 years ago and now I’m in it. It’s a dream come true for me.

Chapbook Finalist

While my little chapbook still hasn’t found a home yet, it has placed as a finalist for another competition, this time at Palooka Press. I see each personalized rejection as one step closer to an acceptance. All the generous and kind declines have really given me hope it will one day find a good home. Time for another round of submissions!

Another Round

After a few rounds of rejections, being selected as Highly Commended in Ellipsis Zine‘s Flash Fiction Collection Competition really encouraged me to keep submitting. So here’s to another round of chapbook submissions! I’m subbing to three places this time and keeping my fingers crossed.

Chapbook Selected as Highly Commended

Well, it’s the end of the road for the Ellipsis Zine Flash Collection Competition. It was great while it lasted. While I wasn’t named as one of the top three finalists, my chapbook was selected as one of the three Highly Commended collections, which in itself is an honor. Many thanks to Steve and Stephanie and the Ellipsis Zine team for such a great journey.

Ellipsis Zine Longlist

While I’ve garnered several rejections for my chapbook so far, I just found out that it made the longlist for Ellipsis Zine’s Flash Collection Competition! I should find out if I make the shortlist in just a couple more weeks. Crossing my fingers!
