My review of A Reckoning in the Back Country, a Samuel Craddock Mystery by Terry Shames, has been published by the Internet Review of Books.
The Sunlight Press has accepted my short story, "Turn Around," for its online journal. It will be featured in four to six months. I wrote this in three different flashes for Practice and the connected full story was critiqued in Fiction, so I have a lot of people to thank.
Good professional editors who respond promptly, and they pay They're looking for short stories, flash, creative nonfiction with unsentimental but upbeat endings, despite what the character goes through.

I have two poems up at Shot Glass Journal, issue #24. Many thanks to the Poetry list for helping me with these.
