A win for the weekend!

Cemetery Dance Online Review Celebration Pic

An incredible finish to an awesome week! I didn’t think my amazing week could get any better, but the Cemetery Dance reviewer mentioned my story “Nothing to See Here” in Generation X-ed and the praise was mind-blowing. I’m humbled and honored. Then, the Disney’s Robin Hood backpack I have had my eye on for over a year but could never order because it was out of stock finally arrived!! Link to the Generation X-ed review is here, and if you haven’t gotten this book yet, you should! I’m in here with some very talented writers, and if you’re a GenX-er, then this is something you’ll definitely want to own.

I am really pleased that “Nothing to See Here” has been so appreciated, as this story was a tough one to write; the opening scene is pretty much a twist on what was really going on in my house the day of the Challenger disaster, and it was not a pleasant trip down memory lane. The story was mentioned in The Horror Tree review back in December—and that review was the one that just made me realize that I need to keep writing, no matter what. The World According to J! also mentioned it in his review. It’s exciting to get a good review, simply because it tells me I’m doing my job well. I guess I could compare it to, in the non-writing world, getting a merit raise or bonus. It’s something to be proud of, and something to scream to the world.

Cemetery Dance Nothing to See Here Mention

A clip from the Cemetery Dance Online review by Dave Simms. I think the specific story he’s referencing is King’s “The Mist” (how gd cool is THAT? I particularly loved this because I was reading that book back in the summer of 1992 when I was working overnight security at URI, so I have a nostalgic connection to that piece in particular.)
