Publication Flood

Posted by on Apr 17, 2015 in anthology:poem, anthology:story, Blog, holy taco church, public speaking | 2 comments

I’ve commented before that publishing events seem to happen in odd little bursts. I’ll hear nothing for months, then have a torrent of acceptances/rejections. The same goes for publications. Up until last week, I had zero stories published in 2014. Then in about a week, I had three out, two of them pro. Plus two poems.

Need to procrastinate and read? Well, here you go:
– My story “Bread of Life” is up at Nature. This is my third story in Nature, and the tale is… appropriately me. There’s also a blog post with the story behind the story.

– Daily Science Fiction published “From the Ashes,” one of those rare, uplifting post-apocalyptic stories.

– At Fantasy Scroll Magazine you can read my longer story, “My Brother’s Keeper.” It features southern-fried magic, family love, and pie.

As for poetry:
– Devilfish Review published “The Migration of Winged Jukeboxes.” More poetry should mention Steve Perry, I think.

– Kaleidotrope has a more whimsical poem, “Squished Things.”

I’ve also popped up elsewhere online:
– I took part in an SF Signal Mind Meld on The City and Epic Road Trips.

– I had a new recipe at the Holy Taco Church: Bacon Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies.

– I also asked one of my favorite authors, C.E. Murphy, about how she plotted series. She answered, and it’s interesting stuff.


  1. When they cluster like that it’s really fun, but very hard to get the word out! Thanks for the comprehensive list – very helpful!
