news FLASH! (anthology)

Got the notice this morning that two of my flash stories have been accepted into their upcoming FLASH! anthology.

"A Dream of Peonies" and "Something Different" were both originally published on MicroHorror.

Another anthology, Elements of Horror, publishes next week on April 1.

I've got one story per "element":

Fire: Love and Arson
Water: Down for the Third Time
Earth: Earthworks
Air: Air in the Line

So ... totally stoked about that.

In other news ... Troll is derailed. I'm working diligently, but I'm either going to turn it into a pure fantasy novel (which genre I've never touched) or switch horses yet again. My high school protagonists are currently swimming in a soup of cliche and boring, coincidental plot. Not saying this story is dead, but it currently appears to have been nailed to the perch.

Thanks for reading.

  2. Congrats on your accepted stories—the elemental works sounds interesting.
    Keep up with your novel. I almost deleted mine out of frustration, and I'm glad I didn't—it is finished today and I started querying for agents this March. I'm stoked about that.
