I was thrilled when, recently, Peter D. Schwotzer of Literary Mayhem dropped me an e-mail to tell me about a new feature on his site—original fiction—and asked if I’d provide a story.

I chose the “winter tale” spot for January 24, 2011—I have something in the works horror-wise that I hope will be everything Peter’s looking for! But you don’t have to wait until January to read some great original fiction over at Literary Mayhem—James A. Moore’s story will debut on July 24, and October’s feature is by Lee Thompson.

I’m excited and honored by this opportunity! To read the announcement in Literary Mayhem’s Fiction News, click here:

    • Hey, Gail! Thanks! Things are back on the upswing. I’ve been hiding out getting ready for the move. There’s just so much to do. We’re looking at the Orlando area–and I was thrilled to discover there’s a thriving writing community down in the state of FLA, much more so than here. So I’m really excited.
