I’ve been waiting for the details to be finalized before formally announcing this, and I’m happy I can do so now: my short-story collection Making Love While Levitating Three Feet in the Air has been accepted for publication by the Stephen F. Austin State University Press and is scheduled to appear in March 2016!
This is the same collection that was previously a finalist for the New Rivers Press MVP Award and, earlier this year, the Permafrost Book Prize in Fiction. The endorsements that have already come in have been wonderful, and I’ll be posting those along with details regarding ordering in the next few months as we move toward the official release date.
Some more good publishing news:
I’m honored that two of my poems were selected for inclusion in About Place Journal’s latest issue, with the theme “The Future Imagined Differently.” Those poems are “Black Friday Morning” and “Too Often We Think.” A very special thanks to Patricia Spears Jones, who edited this lovely issue.
My poem “Shotpouch Creek” is available to read in the current issue of Elohi Gadugi Journal with the theme “Rivers.”
The latest edition of Assisi: An Online Journal of Arts & Letters, Volume 4, Issue 1/2, is now available. I have four poems appearing in its pages. You may download a PDF of the issue or view it online here.
My poem “Late Winter, Lookout Creek” is slated to appear in the Winter 2015 issue of Kudzu House Quarterly.
