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…
Finding Cabo Rojo-recognized by Faulkner Wisdom
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!
I will be writing
This year I signed up for the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction Challenge. I think it is the same challenge I wrote for last year but the name changed. In any case, this weekend is round two, so I plan to be writing. I really like my round one story, and it scored respectably, so hopefully…

I won a flash fiction prize in the Cracked Flash Fiction Competition in December 2016. My piece was entitled “The Understanding.” You can read it HERE, or you can just scroll down the page. I decided to post a screenshot as this news is a couple of years old now, and you just never know…

Only four stories advanced to round three from each heat, and I was number 5. I’m still proud to have made it that far. I’ll certainly participate in this contest again. It…
The Texas Review V36 Fall/Winter 2015
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.
Round 2–NYC Short Story Challenge
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…

My Story Won a Prize!
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…
