Every once in a while you find out something that just makes your day. Recently, I discovered my novel Bad Apple was listed on a couple of Favorites/Best Of Lists (and in all the wedding planning and post-wedding clean-up chaos I missed it). So it was a nice surprise to find out that
Literary Mayhem’s Peter Schwotzer, who reviewed the book last year, named it to his My Favorite Books for 2013 List here and science fiction writer Brady Allen recommended it on his Way Out There blog as 8 Books You Might Like here.
In addition, Elissa Malcohn recommended it in connection with caregiving, as Bad Apple is the story of my experience with youth caregiving told through the lens of fiction. Read her interview over at The Genius Salon here.
My short story, “Growlers”—commissioned by and exclusively written for Literary Mayhem—is now posted on the site. You can read this creepy winter tale about being careful what you wish for here: http://literarymayhem.com/wordpress/kristi-petersen-schoonover-growlers/
Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
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: http://literarymayhem.com/wordpress/2011/05/13/original-fiction-news/
