My first short story to be published

I am very happy to announce that my short story Heavy Things will be featured in the forthcoming Guns and Romances Anthology by Dark Continents Publishing!!!

I hadn’t written a short story in many, many years, and I had only started experimenting with flash fiction for the first time about a month before I started working on Heavy Things.  I wasn’t sure when I started writing it whether I was even capable of putting together a good short story.  I took the challenge on with the attitude that it would be a learning experience that would help me to focus my storytelling and plotting and help me in eventually finishing my novel The Lesser Evil.  So it was a major milestone to finish something like this and actually be able to submit it.

In this story a bartender grapples with a shocking discovery about her lover before finding out they both have something far, far more dangerous to deal with.  It was a blast writing it, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what other tales my fellow anthologists will be serving up.
