Crack The Spine Fall 2013 Now Available on Amazon!

The (ahem) highly anticipated Crack The Spine Fall 2013 Anthology is now available at Imageamazon.com

Official Release: http://www.crackthespine.com/2013/11/fall-2013-anthology.html

My Pushcart Prize-nominated story Burn, Baby, Burn is featured in the depths of some pretty outstanding literary fiction – all compiled into one fantastic anthology. I’m honored to be amongst them. 

If you are looking for a Christmas present for someone….or, if you really love great fiction….or, if you are one of my family members who have a biological imperative to support my artistic endeavors then I proudly suggest purchasing a copy!

I’d like to also send out a special shout out to Crack The Spine’s editor, Kerri Farrell Foley – perhaps the hardest working and most dedicated editor I’ve worked with to date. It has been an absolute pleasure working with her. Her support has been invaluable! 

If you find yourself reading through the pages and thinking, “Wow. These writers DO.NOT.SUCK” please consider leaving feedback on amazon’s page. So often, I’ve found myself loving something I’ve read and keeping those thoughts to myself. But, the success of these kinds of publications rely on reader’s feedback. Writers supporting other writers is a great way to increase your publishing karma (says me) and to support an industry we all want to see succeed. 

And, if you read it and think, “Wow. These writers SURE.DO.SUCK” then you could maybe go ahead and keep that to yourself. I won’t mind. 

Amazon Description: Crack the Spine. Bend a fresh book until your hands meet beneath its stressed strings. Feel the weight of words snap free.

I was chosen based on the reactions my story “Burn, Baby Burn” received when it was released in Issue 74 last month. Thanks to everyone that read it and spoke out in their comments and Facebook page. If you haven’t read my story, please take a moment to head over to their site! You can read my story and their interview where I sound brilliant, self assured and amazingly attractive. Yep. 

Come on, you know you are bored at work anyways!

I have a new short story called Burn Baby, Burn published

at Crack The Spine Literary Magazine.

Please read it.  Please love it.

Our little Burn Baby needs your love.

Note: I mentioned this once before, but it really is worth repeating:  My story will be published in their online journal but it is now eligible for inclusion in one of their print publications. They take into account feedback left on their website and social media sites. So, if you like my story, please tell them. I would love the opportunity to reach a wider audience and for my story to be published in one of their esteemed anthologies.

New fiction forthcoming from Crack the Spine

I have a new story coming out this week at Crack the Spine Literary Magazine. It is a dark tale called Burn Baby, Burn. It was inspired, partly, by the novel We Have Always Lived In the Castle by Shirley Jackson – who, in my opinion had a way of writing Gothic Claustrophobia like no one else.

I will be published in Issue 74 and I could not be more delighted that Burn Baby found such a perfect home. Please look for it later this week. In the meantime, check out their “Meet the Contributors” section for more information.
