Lots of news from yesterday. My short story, "No Farther," is included in Fiction River: Editor's Choice. It came out yesterday and is available as an ebook and paperback.
While I don't really have a favorite story that I've written (that's like asking which child is your favorite) this is a story I am glad is getting out there. There are some people I hope it touches in a special way. Anyway, it's one I hope you check out.
And then I got a surprise in my email box. My story, "The Flare," was selected to be included in Fiction River: Reader's Choice. This particular volume has stories that readers voted for.
I admit when I got the email my first thought was, "this is a mistake." I had to read the Table of Contents to be convinced. And I am thrilled.
My thanks to readers who voted for the story. And I hope you check THAT volume out as well.
