Final Edits, Parker Fritz's "In the Fall", Pushcarts and Best of the Web...Oh my!

Some news in the past couple weeks:

Aside from continued work on my upcoming book The Same Terrible Storm, there's been some other news I'd be happy to share.

Parker Fritz has a photo-essay called "In the Fall" from Foxhead Books that was just the subject of a launch party. Visit here to see images from that launch, and buy Parker's book. Wonderful photography.

I'll take some time to thank Blue Fifth Review and their editorial staff for nominating my short story "Coming By It Honest" for both the Best of the Web anthology and for a Pushcart Prize last week. Congrats also to the others nominated by this consistently intriguing publication.

And just last night I was pleased to learn that Thunderclap Magazine nominated another of my stories from last year "From the Ground up in Four Movements" for a second Pushcart Prize for this past year. It goes without saying I'm more than grateful and humbled to have been considered along with so many fine writers.

Best of luck to all.
