I’m reading at Book Soup tomorrow evening for Queen’s Ferry Press’ Best Small Fictions of 2015 Anthology. On the roster are fellow West Coast writers, Lauren Becker, Yennie Cheung, and Chris Terry. Hope to see some familiar faces in the audience…
Today is the official launch day for the Queen’s Ferry Press’s anthology, Best Small Fictions 2015. I’m so excited to be included in the fifty-five stories, chosen by editor, Robert Olen Butler. The story I wrote, “The Third Time My Father Tried to Kill Me,” was published originally by Mojave River Review. The anthology is stuffed to the gills with work from sensational fiction writers such as Stuart Dybek, Ron Carlson,and Bobbie Ann Mason, to name but a few. Two of my favorite stories are Naomi Telushkin’s “Object,” and Jeff Streeby’s “El Paso: July.” All of the writers would be grateful if you’d consider buying a copy on launch day to help propel the anthology to the higher reaches of the Amazon and Barnes & Noble rankings. You can purchase a copy a the following places:
I am so grateful to the editing team of Tara Masih, Kathy Fish, Robert Shapard, Claudia Smith, Michelle Elvy, Claire MacQueen, and Guest Editor, Robert Olen Butler, and if you buy a copy and bump into me I’ll happily sign it for you.
Delighted to report my story, “The Third Time My Father Tried to Kill Me,” originally published at the Mojave River Review was chosen by Robert Olen Butler as a winner in the Queensferry Press’s “Best Small Fictions 2015.”—http://t.co/bAt90vmHPh. It’s amazing to be included in the mix with writers of the caliber of Bobbie Ann Mason, Stuart Dybek, Ron Carlson, and so many others.
