As usual, everything is happening at once, too much to post on social media, but I'll do it here.
Most exciting, an email from the Sherry Flick, the series editor of BEST SMALL FICTIONS 2018, saying one of my flash is a finalist. I won't know which one until March 23 (three were nominated, by Midway Journal and Black Lawrence Press). Finalists are listed at the back of the annual anthology. This is big news.
Today I have a new short story online at THE GINGER COLLECT, home for the "weird and strange." I've been working for a while on this story, strongly influenced by "The Yellow Wallpaper." The protagonist is a junior professor but she's nothing like me; I write about professors partly because it's so easy to imagine what they do. Here's "Raney's Imaginary Friend." A short interview will follow.
p.s. Here's the interview.
