new flash in crack the spine
Pleased to see my three-part flash sequence "Johnsy Seen Her Too" in the new issue of CRACK THE SPINE (click on my name in the table of contents).
This garnered some rejections as a micro (just the first section) and I wondered whether it was because the narrator is so misogynist. So I decided to redo it as three sections, adding two women's voices. Before I could send out that version, CRACK THE SPINE accepted the micro. (Of course!) I sent the new version to them just in case they preferred it,, and the editor-in-chief Kerri Farrell Foley agreed to accept that one. I'm still not completely sure which version I prefer.
It's my first time in CRACK THE SPINE, which has published many authors whose work I love—among them, Kim Magowan, Claire Polders, Minyoung Lee, Christina Dalcher, Sara Siddiqui Chansarker, Madeline Anthes, Sarah Broussard Weaver, and Jan Elman Stout.
