I love the way this cover came out. Although I did the layout, I can’t really take credit for the beautiful artwork provided by J. Bob Blacklock. I don’t do a lot of covers at Texas Review Press, but once in a while I get to flex my Photoshop muscles.
I made it to the second round of the 10th Annual NYC Short Story Challenge! My story, “Chumming for Sharks,” is a thriller about assuming a new identity with an unannounced house guest somewhere in it.
I spent last weekend writing my second round story, a fairy tale about breaking a rule with a character who is a pacifist.
This summer I participated once again in the WritersWeekly.com 24-Hour Short Story contest, and I won a prize. Okay, I didn’t place in the top three, so the prize was not of the cash variety, but my story was recognized as “worthy” which is far more important to me. The story is titled, “The Meek Inherit the Earth,” and it offers a glimpse into one young man’s emergence into the wide world, with his chicken under his arm, just as everything is falling apart. I won’t publish it here, since I hope someone else will also find it worthy, but if you would like to read it, please use the contact page to let me know. – Kim 😉
