Holy Guacamole, it's Damned Near July!

What happened to June? I guess I wasn't paying attention.

Here's me, and some of the distractions of the month.

I'm sure you can see why the month just flew by. I didn't even post pics of all the ding-dangled kids I've had running around the yard.

Love our flowers. Love 'em.

So, it being just about July, Every Day Fiction's Table of Contents has been posted.

My story, To Save the Disco, comes out on the sixth. I really had a great time writing it--it's all dialogue and totally crazy. I hope everyone has as much fun reading it as I did writing it. It comes out on a Sunday, so I know a lot of you will be away from your computers, but please do read it on Monday. As always, comments are greatly appreciated. You're all helping me write better!

Here's July's ToC at Every Day Fiction--new writers and the returns of many established EDF greats:

Table of Contents and What's That? Podcasts?

Okay, so Every Day Fiction has pretty much rocked since its inception. I stumbled upon it not long after its launch, and I've been very impressed with the zine, and happy to be a part of it.

Well, it seems I'll be even more a part of it. I'll be working with EDF to compile, edit, and publish podcasts of the stories they publish there. I'm very excited about it. It's all just in the works for now, and I'm not sure when the podcasts will launch, but I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of it. I even get to do podcasts!

Here's the ToC at EDF for June. I've got one coming out on the 19th. It's called, Mail. Hope you get a chance to read it.
