So as an unaccepted surprise for the weekend I was greeted with an acceptance letter from The J.J. Outre review for my short story Darkrise. This is more of an odd tale where the decedents of a group of humans who punched their way through to another universe must learn to survive where the physical laws are vastly different. It’s weird.

My first published short story, Corporate Property, hit the web on Friday at Literally Stories. Many thanks to the editors for accepting and putting it out there! I have to admit there’s a very vulnerable feeling that came with seeing something you wrote put out there for the world to see. I couldn’t help the notion of being naked and exposed popping up as I read the comments. Thankfully, they’ve been positive.
Also have to give a shout out to the The Writers Center in Bethesda. This story was critiqued in one of their workshops. Great place and great people.

I’m thrilled to say that after a long hard road there’s finally a pinprick of light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve had two short stories accepted by two different markets. When they are up and available I’ll post links here. Very exciting to see something I’ve written out there for the world to see. And also scary. Holy shit, the whole world is going to see what I wrote as a fiction piece? Yikes!
