Publishing News: My Short Story Gets Flushed

One of my short fiction pieces, The Other Foot, which I just recently read along with a gathering of other authors at Warren County Community College, has been selected to appear in the latest anthology from Portable Press, Uncle John’s Flush Fiction. As they describe it on their Amazon page:

Butcher Knives & Body Counts Update

It looks like the release date for Butcher Knives & Body Counts is looming closer than ever. Galleys and Bio Updates have been received and returned, so it’s safe to say that the book is now on the fast track to publication. I remember submitting my work to this anthology back when I was still working on Performed by Lugosi, and I have been eagerly awaiting its release ever since.

The devious minds over at Dark Scribe Press have cobbled together an amazing selection of writing talents, and the amount of ground this anthology covers in the realm of slasher films is truly inspiring. The last I heard, release signings were being planned in the New York/Long Island area sometime this summer. Rest assured, I will keep you updated.

Actually, Monster Rally has been available on Kindle for about two weeks now, but I wanted to wait until the listing was fully integrated with the rest of Amazon. As of today, the Kindle version of Monster Rally is linked to the print copy, as well as my Amazon Author page, and has a free sample available for instant download. Continue reading

But delayed news is still good news, and the new word is finally out on an eagerly awaited anthology that my work is slated to be included in.
