So the timing on this one worked out perfectly. Here’s a flash excerpt from The Brother We Share, due out 9/1. I put my whole heart into this, into that entire book. Huge thanks to J. Archer Avary over at Sledgehammer Lit for seeing something in this one. And if you liked this, you might like the book too. Pre-orders are available.
Super stoked to share that I’ll be editing an anthology all about favorite childhood video games with The Daily Drunk! If you’ve got some good nostalgia for me, send it to email@example.com!
Here’s my single sentence flash on coming into a queer enby identity through shifting haircuts over the years & fighting dogma & norms; the accompanying art by Jay Baker is incredible, & huge thanks to Jason Thayer & Complete Sentence for taking this!
Woke up to a super kind acceptance from J. Archer Avary over at Sledgehammer Lit! This is a flash, but it’s also a straight up excerpt from The Brother We Share, so this feels especially fantastic. Encouraging to see that this story is already resonating. This piece drops 6/14!
So stoked about the acceptance I just got from Jason Thayer over at Complete Sentence, accepted 28 minutes after I submitted! 😱 I seriously can’t wait to share my single sentence queer flash “All the Haircuts You Used to Have” with all of you. 😊
I’ve got fiction in here! It’s a piece about nostalgia and sexuality and lost love, and I’m really proud of it. Guest appearances by Angel Olsen, Q101, Gorillaz, and Chicago’s el. Huge thanks to Chris Talbot-Heindl for picking this up, and for fostering such an amazing community. 😊 Check out the full issue here!
My piece on grief through the lens of video game glitching is live in one of my dream journals, Cleaver Magazine! This flash is also an excerpt from my WIP, so it makes this feel even better, and then Cathy Ulrich, one of my all-time favorite flash writers, read and shared this, so that pretty much cinched the great day trifecta for me. 😊 You can read this story here!
Litro just published “Stop Making Sense,” my flash about Talking Heads, gay bar experimentation, and gender identity! I’m really proud of this one, and you can read it here. Huge thanks to Litro for giving this a home! 😊
AHH!! My story “San Andreas Heaven,” a piece on grief through the lens of video game glitching, just got accepted by Cleaver Magazine! This is a dream for me. I’ve been trying them for years, and this story is an offshoot of my WIP novel The Brother We Share. Actual tears of joy.
It took a revision to get there, but we got there. I don’t know what else to say, other than I’m so glad I didn’t give up:
I’ve got a prose piece about grief & longing & fighting small town homophobia that I’m really proud of, just went live in scissors & spackle! Huge thanks to Jenny & Ariana & all the awesome folks at ELJ for seeing something in my words. 😊
