Now available: Found

I am happy to announce that the winter edition of Allegory is up and it includes my short story, Found.

For more about this story, check out my recent Next Big Thing post.

Beyond that exciting news, I'm enjoying NyQuil filled days and nights as I recover from this evil cough/cold thing that has been haunting my chest and lungs since New Year's Day. Thank you to the person who decided to come out to celebrate New Year's Eve despite the fact they weren't feeling quite right. I am now feeling quite wrong. Blech.

Beyond that, I'm making time to continue my reading spree, and I managed to edit a short and get it back out in submissions. I have two more short stories to put back into my juggling routine and then I'm set to dive into novel submissions. And revisions on several more.

One thing at a time. And right now...I think that thing is a nap.


  1. Congratulations on getting your story published. That's super exciting. Also, I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Just snuck over here from the CC "what did you blog about today" thread, and glad I did. Read your story. Beautifully written, and the POV is perfect; lots of writers (like me) struggle creating poignant stories from a small child's point of view. "Found" reminded me of Zenna Henderson's classic sci-fi stories about children. Are you familiar with her -- granted, very old -- work?

    As a nit-picky CCer, I can't resist criticizing something, so here goes: under "Discarded Darlings," above, shouldn't it read "the adventures OF a writer..." Hee hee -- but that's me. I gotta pick! All the best luck with your writing. I loved it.

    Feel free to stop by at "Belly-up!" and nit-pick my bouncing baby blog to death. When you're feeling better, of course!

    1. Thanks for pointing out the typo! I swear it didn't used to be there, but I probably tweaked the line at some point...and you know how that goes.

      Glad you enjoyed Found. It was a fun one to write. I haven't read Henderson. I'll have to look that up.

  3. That's a great story. Of course, being a writer, the first thing that popped in my head when I saw the grey place was 50 Shades of....Yeah, I know, I'm sick.

    1. Ha! I read anything with Grey in it and that's what first comes to mind for me too. Blarg!

      Glad to see you back around, Fred. :)


Join the conversation. It gets lonely in here without you.
