Meanwhile, here’s some 2013 NEWS:
First – my partner and I had twins - Rosie Margaret and Cedar Helene Stoner!
On the business side: I wrote a craftless craft essay for Brave on the Page, which was a Powell’s Pick and received a great Los Angeles Review blurb. Also, my micro-fiction “A Moment of Relief” is up at Pif Magazine and “A Confession” just came out in Folio. In May 2014, my story “The Last Time” will be included in Forest Avenue Press’s Short Story Anthology!
This year I read with Unchaste Readers at Blue Monk on May 21, 2013; July 9th with Unshod Quills (editor Dena Rash Gazman’s book release!) at Crush in Portland, OR; August 28 in a Queer reading of novels-in-progress show at Floyds in Portland; and September 27 with Gertrude Press to celebrate their 20th issue! The Gertrude show featured two poets, two fiction folks (me and Carter Sickle), and a short film. This might be it for the year since I’m focusing on pitching my novel Secrets & Sightings… wish me luck!
