My short story “The Lace in the Window” was accepted this morning at Rose Red Review (go read their current issue at This ghost story is set in the 1970s at Howe Caverns in upstate New York and was written in honor of our wedding back in 2012 (psst! If you’re looking for a great getaway, check out Howe Caverns here: They’ve also started a new Haunted Tour (which I don’t see listed on the site yet), so if that’s something that interests you, definitely call and ask about it. Nathan and I are going up there to do it on October 25 and we can’t wait!

In other news that needed to be kept under wraps for awhile (but I think now it should be okay), my flash piece “skin&hair, teeth&bones” has been accepted for The Four Horsemen’s Anthology: Year Three. These anthologies usually debut at AnthoCon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which next year will take place from June 5-7. It’s a great time, so check it out here: I plan on being there in June and will be registering shortly.

When the stories are available I’ll let you know, and watch this site soon for some pretty amazing video of Austin’s Bat Festival…unless you plan on heading to the city, this may be your only chance to witness 1.5 million bats filling the dusky sky!
