Although I am sorely disappointed at the cancellation of the anthology, I am very excited that I can put “Jolene” back on the market, a haunted vision of Dolly Parton’s classic song.  The story was on hold for an entire year.  It is true that my newest piece “They” met a sound rejection in only 11 days by the good folks at Apex, still I do believe that I have grown tremendously as an author.  I look forward to bringing to bear the last year of experience on one of the first pieces that I wrote for the professional market.

With trouble brewing on every front, I could sure use a win right about now.  Then again, if there is one thing that I’ve learned in this last year, it’s that success is elusive, even when you do everything right.  The only thing we can do is keep reading, keep learning and keep writing!
