Picture A Day June 10, 2009 - Guadalupe River ...

Just a quick note about a new story of mine, though “new” is a bit misleading — I actually wrote the first draft of this one something like a decade ago and have been revising and retooling it ever since. A while back I finally got it where I wanted it, and it’s been making the rounds, and this past week Red Dirt Review picked it up (and praised the hell out of it, which feels great).

Seriously, I’m pretty damned proud of this one, folks.

The story is “Barefoot in the Guadalupe.”

And bonus points to anyone who figures out where I got the idea. (Friends who already know: no fair cheating and letting the secret out. Let the other kids play for a change.)

Also, a couple of previews: a lot of my literary friends have been really, really busy lately, and tomorrow I want to plug some of the awesomeness they’ve been up to. So, more publication news to come. And, while I’m on the subject, I’ve had another story picked up just this morning, but I’ll wait and announce it once it’s actually in print.
