So, it turns out I have a new short story out right now. I was lucky enough to be chosen for an anthology called Little Visible Delight. It was edited by Kate Jonez and S.P. Miskowski, published by Omnium Gatherum. Buy it on Amazon HERE.
In a collection of stories about obsession, I could only think of one thing to write about.
It’s JP!!!!! Here’s another one of JP with Daddy:
It was an honor to be included in this collection. Man, I’m in there with a whole cavalcade of fancy authors, and that rocks. JP is sitting on my lap right now, snuggling with approval. My story about him (us!) is dark and endearing and creepy and weird. Good ol’ JP.
Here’s the description of the anthology:
Often the most powerful and moving stories are generated by writers who return time and again to a particular idea, theme, or image. Obsession in a writer’s imagination can lead to accomplishment or to self-destruction. Consider Poe and his pale, dead bride; his fascination with confinement and mortality; his illness and premature death. Or Flannery O’Connor’s far less soul-crushing fondness for peacocks. Some writers pay a high price for their obsessions, while others maintain a crucial distance. Whichever the case, obsessions can produce compelling fiction.
Little Visible Delight is an anthology of original stories in which eleven authors of dark fiction explore some their most intimate, writerly obsessions.
