I am honored to have been invited to speak in the beautiful Ecuadorian city of Cuenca at the Cuenca International Writers Conference May 28-June 1, 2018.
I wrote this review for JASAT, the Journal of the American Studies Association of Texas. It appears in Volume 46: November, 2016.
While still feeling smug about the Faulkner-Wisdom folks saying they liked my novel-in-progress, I logged into Submittable to see what I still have in the active column, with a view to submitting something somewhere. I clicked the “Accepted” tab by accident, knowing I have received no notifications, but three of my story titles were there with a bright green “accepted” tag beside them. Apparently, The Helix Literature and Art Magazine emailed me two weeks ago, but I never received the emails. I could have been happy about this all this time! For whatever reason, I suppose the time wasn’t right yet.
Look for these stories in the Fall 2017 issue:
- “Chumming for Sharks”
- “Sea Legs”
- “The Messenger”
I was pleased to learn today that my novel-in-progress, Finding Cabo Rojo, received some recognition from the judges of the 2017 Faulkner-Wisdom competition. It made it to the semi-finals, and I heard through the grapevine they had more submissions this year than they have ever had before. I’ll consider it a win. I’m thrilled!
