Another Month

Well, September is upon us and it has ushered into the gulf coast states with a bang. As I write this my children are playing nicely (for the moment) upstairs and Hurricane Gustav is pounding N.O. I am thankful that all I have to worry about where I live are lightening storms and the occational tornado.

On Friday Cindy Crosmus of Yellow Mama e-mailed me and told me my short story, Fire and Brimstone, would be in the Christmas issue #11. It is a dark story about a would-be suicide and the aftermath that plague the man who tried. I hope everyone will check it out.

In other news I received a very short rejection letter for my story, Wine for Two. I will not link to those that rejected me, but I am assuming that it was not what they had in mind when they were looking for thought provoking literary fiction.

I hope everyone in the states enjoys the Labor day holiday and those of you outside of them will enjoy your Monday in spite of the date.

The occasional tornado? They would freak me out as much as a hurricane.

Congrats on your acceptance and thanks for checking out my story. Much appreciated. :)

It's nice to meet you. Thanks for the congrats. Good luck with your own writing and with finishing your house. I'm right there with you. Between dogs and kids, all I manage to do is fix what they tear up.

Congrats on the Yellow Mama acceptance. It's a nice little 'zine.
