Couple of pieces of news:

1. Tin House just accepted one of my short stories, “You’re Making It Sound Like Something It’s Not,” for publication in their Flash Fridays section! I’ll let you know when it goes live.

2. I’ve written a few more of my weekly posts for the Ploughshares blog, and created a page to keep track of them all. Check it the “Reviews” section above.

Couple bits of news!

1. I’m thrilled to have a story in the new print issue of Redivider, called “Fit to Scale.” Grateful to the editors!

2. My first few lit journal reviews for the Ploughshares blog are up. You can see them here, here, and here.

3. Yesterday I got an incredibly insightful editorial letter, along with annotations on my novel manuscript, The Hummingbirds, from my agent Reiko Davis. I’m gathering my wits and over the next few months will be tuning the novel up and getting it ready to (hopefully) sell. Wish me luck!
