I’ve been horrible about keeping this blog updated through the month of October, but I’m back with some significant news:
My flash piece “The Rising Son” won first place over at Cease, Cows in their 2013 Hallow/Hallowed Contest! You can read it over here. Oh, and the finalists were guest-judged by Stephen Graham Jones. NBD.
It’s a quick read – just a hair over 500 words, I think. I say that because I had originally intended it to be exactly 500 words and then realized that I only made the mark because I’d left out the word “the” somewhere. So really, you have no excuse not to read it.
If you aren’t familiar with Cease, Cows, you really should be. Taking their name from a Gabriel Garcia Marquez sentence, they update all the time with some really gorgeous/weird/awesome/indescribable flash pieces.
Check them out!
