Publishing News: "Downhill" published today in Eschatology Journal
After a prolonged break from the blurg-er-sphere, during which time I was tending to a garden of deadlines, I'm back to announce some pretty exciting publishing news over the next few days.
It all kicks off with my flash fiction piece, "Downhill," which emerged from the oven just this morning and is now sitting on the breezy window sill at the Eschatology Journal, the online publication of Lovecraftian and apocalyptic flash fiction, birthing forth new stories of bleakness and dread every Wednesday.
"Downhill" was fun to write, and came from just a simple scene that I've had rattling around my gourd for years. Luckily, "flash fiction" came along (or, I came along to "flash fiction"), and allowed me to explore that scene without inorganically shoe horning it into a larger work. For those whom have never tried it, flash fiction is a fantastic way to explore those ideas that don't demand the Joycean treatment.
