2013 has been a slow year for me publication-wise but I’m pleased to reported by flash tale, “Revenge is a Star in the Sky,” appears in the April issue of Bard and Sages Quarterly alongside several of my writing friends, which is pretty cool. Here’s an excerpt:
She looked at the darkened sky that lay beyond her bedroom window. The stars mocked her with their twinkling. She lifted an eyebrow. I’ll grow up, I’ll get over it, she thought, smirking. Her eyes fell on one star in particular. It shone brighter than the rest and she knew why. She would make them pay.

This post is super delayed, but I definitely wanted to take a moment to jot down my thoughts about the latest story I’ve had published. It’s called “Carapace” and you can check it out right now at Ray Gun Revival.
This story actually started as a very brief flash piece. I think I wrote it for a 100-word flash competition but I can’t remember when or what for. Needless to say, I didn’t win. The story sat on my hard drive for several months until I revisited it and decided to expand it. A whole world came out in the revision and I was pretty pleased with the result. I got excellent feedback from beta readers too, including Lydia S. Gray.
It’s super pulpy and not very much like other things I write, but that may be why it was so fun. I hope you enjoy it!
