Weeks Like Mountains

Weeks have been passing like mountains.

A lot of exciting communications have been taking place this past week. My Hunger Mountain contract came in the mail yesterday on the heels of sending the editor my headshot and bio. Also in the mail yesterday was the Flash: the International Magazine for Short-Short Stories with my story “Do These Horses Bite?” Finally, I received word from Fifth Wednesday Journal that they accepted my story “Hoodlums” about a man who believes he is Al Capone as a means to cope with his fractured life.

Back to the Hunger Mountain news, the first chapter of my unpublished novel Alpha House will publish at the end of this month.

And as if these weren’t enough on my plate: I am reviewing books for The Chapbook Review and New Pages. My first review came out last week on Pocket Finger.

As for collaborations, my wife and I are beginning our journey through the world of Nancy Drew, outlining and writing the first of two trilogies. Also, we are working on a new epic multi-book story. Can;t divulge too much about it, other than to say we are writing extensive outlines, character descriptions, and back story. Once finished, we will take turns writing different sections.

Keep on.
