The anthology includes my sassy flash fiction, “Dressed Left.”
It is my first inclusion in a Best Of, and it is a printed thing; an honest-to-goodness book. Goodness gracious.
Time for ALOG (Another Letter of Gratitude):
In tooting my horn as part of applying for two grants, I realized that since November of 2017, I have had a new literary publication almost ever other month. This schedule continues through September of 2018, what with the upcoming publication of the flash fiction “The Summers of Carefully” in Right Hand Pointing; plus an acceptance I COMPLETELY FORGOT to mention:
The short-short published last November in Crack the Spine. That whacky flash, Dressed Left, was selected by the editors for their upcoming “Best Of” anthology. That’s in a book, Ladies and Gentlemen. A book.
When “Dressed Left” published, I asked for your letters to the editor. Many of you complied. Editors love letters to the editor. I believe that those letters helped with the selection of “Dressed Left.” Many, many thanks.
Here’s a video I made for Dressed Left.
The recently published Dressed Left was rejected 24 times before hitting the target with the 25th submission to Crack the Spine.
Not to brag (too much), but Crack the Spine is among the top ten magazines for short fiction.
Dressed Left is the second story in the issue. If you click to my piece, you can with ease read the rest of the magazine.
You have zero excuse not to read 223 words. Also, you love me.
Also, it is the teeniest bit filthy. With that:
