NYC Midnight Short Story Round 2 Results

The results were out earlier this month for Round 2 of the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge. Unfortunately, my story (details here: Round 2) didn't make it into the top 5 stories for my group, so I won't be moving on to Round 3.

I'm looking forward to results from the 100-Word Microfiction contest and the prompts I will get for the first round of the Flash Fiction competition!

This month has been so busy with my kids' end of school year activities. I'm finally getting some breathing room this weekend. Preparing for summer activities and fitting in writing time again! I'll be posting about my latest short story publication soon, as well as my plans for finishing my novel this summer!

Happy writing, everyone!

Micro Fiction Acceptance! "Dental Hygiene on Orbital Station #57"

I'm excited to announce that my tiny 250-word story "Dental Hygiene on Orbital Station #57" was accepted by Solarpunk Magazine for their April Micro Fiction Contest!
This is a story I literally started writing while brushing my teeth one night. It's also a story for everyone who loves caring for animals and knows the grief when pets are gone. There's a lot packed in to a small story. I'm thrilled that Solarpunk Magazine will be publishing it!
