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.
