As far as publishing goes, this year has not been a good one. You may have noticed that summer and fall have come and gone, and no stories of mine have appeared in the Ginger Collect, sadly this is because that website has closed and will not be publishing anything anymore, they’ve published 8 of my stories in the 9 issues they’ve published, and I will be doing a lengthy blog post on that sometime next year.
But enough about that. I do have 3 new stories for your enjoyment if you’re interested.
“Our Daily Bread” published in the Short Humour Site (the first place I was ever published, and a site I’ve vowed to publish at least one story in per year). I know everyone is probably really busy this time of year, I completely understand. But if you’re interested, this cute little story should only take about 2 minutes to read at the most. About as long as this post. It’s a Semi-fiction, i.e. part of the story is a true story, but not all of it. Kind of a new genre for me.
If you’re interested in helping out the Downingtown Library. The new Downingtown Doo-Writers Anthology is available on Amazon. I would say that it would make a good Christmas Gift, but it’s a little late for that. My apologies. If money is a little tight, but you’d still like to read the stories, let me know, and I can see what I can do about that. I have 5 stories in it under 3 different names.
“Bonanza N37947N” based on the infamous Day the Music Died, written in the postmodern metafictional magical realist way that I write.
“Pancake Mountain” a heavy and very literary story about a woman returning to the town and family she ran away from years before.
Lastly, if you have some time to kill, now or perhaps after the holidays settle down, head on over to my friend Josh Mavis’s site, and enjoy his spicy fairytale: “Merry Christmas,” based around several different Christmas traditions. I read this one before anyone else, and I got to say, it may be my new favorite Christmas story (well maybe not, A Christmas Carol is nearly if not beyond perfect) I would recommend letting this video play in the background while you read. Josh also contributed to the Doo-Writer’s Anthology.
Hopefully, you will see more posts next year with more published works.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
