Story Is Up!

Hurray! It's a day to celebrate when one's story becomes available to the public. No matter how many times this has happened, there's always something extra special in the knowledge that one's labor of love may now be enjoyed by others.

If you're interested, my story "The Wall" is now available from A Fly In Amber: here. Or you may click the link to the magazine's home page under "Publications and Activities" to the right. Leave a comment about the story on the zine's site or here in my blog. I look forward to hearing what you think. I won't even be upset if you tell me you didn't like it. No writer should suffer from the delusion that she can enchant every reader. However, I do hope you'll enjoy it in some capacity.

Hey, congrats! I was looking for that at the beginning of the month, was beginning to think they'd forgotten.

And yay for pimpage ;)

Wow! You've got a penchant for description- the driftwood pier, the burrowing clams. You tossed me right into the scene and caught my attention right away!

Thanks so much to both of you! I'm thrilled you enjoyed reading, Stephanie. Martin, who commented above you, had the questionable joy of critiquing the story way back when. The goal was to interpret "dark glass" however you wanted and write about it in less than 5k words, which is SOOO hard for me, but it was a wonderful challenge because of that.
