Just a quick note to say I have a new story out in Scintilla Magazine, which just went live today. Huge props to editor Timothy A. Lepczyk for making the issue look so awesome!
I mentioned a week and a half ago that this story actually came to me as a suggestion from a coworker, but to be honest, it’s an amalgamation of a lot of things, including a couple of kitchens I used to work in and some people I knew in high school and in college, all of it kind of mashed together and re-imagined. (No, that character in this story isn’t you.) But the thing about the pregnant girl is the part of the story that someone else suggested. (It’s supposed to be a true story!)
Also, in case anyone’s into connected stories, this story is one of a trilogy of connected stories, which live in a little chapbook I call There Is No Other Way to Worship Them. I haven’t put out the chapbook yet because I’m still looking for a home for the third story, but if you want to read the first story in the trilogy, it’s up at SOL: English Writing in Mexico.

getting published never gets old – congrats
I know, right? Thanks for the congrats! Stay tuned, too — just today I recorded an audio version of another story that’ll be in Fiction Circus soon. It’s my first audio story, so I’m looking forward to it.
Thanks for the duel purpose plug and great story, Samuel.
Hey, Tim! Thanks for popping in! Seriously, great work on the issue — that cover rules, and I love the set-up of the reading interface. Really cool to arrange the magazine that way.
