  • Really happy and honored to have been invited to write about my experiences as a hybrid press (also called “third way” publishing) author. I always jump at the chance to talk about Booktrope and so, the article “Hybrid Legacy” came to be. Ms. Miller is the author of the fabulous novel OUR ORBIT.
  • Two new flash fiction publications from a collection-in-the-works titled Hair of the Dog–“Caroline Picked Up a Piece of Paper on the Playground” and “Chemo, Then Gainesville”–have been published at Spilt Infinitive Literary Magazine (and yes, that is S-P-I-L-T Infinitive, not S-p-l-i-t):  “Caroline Picked Up a Piece of Paper on the Playground” also appeared in Spilt Infinitive Anthology 2013 by Hubris Press.
  • My short story from the same collection “Somebody Should Have Scolded the Girl” has been accepted for publication by Perceptions: A Magazine of the Arts and will appear in their Spring 2014 volume, which is due out in May
