I am so, SO happy to share my story “Lightning My Pilot” with you now that it’s up at Bartleby Snopes today. It’s easily the happiest, most pleasant story I’ve ever written. Like, my mom loves this story. It’s that pleasant. But I love it, too — it’s definitely up on my top five list right now — so don’t think it’s all sunshine and roses. In fact, it’s all clouds and brooding.
Which is why I love it.
The other reason I’m so thrilled to share this publication with you is that it puts me in the company of so many great writers who’ve published in Bartleby Snopes, especially the excellent Sarah Rose Etter, whose beautiful story “Koala Tide” appeared here, and Ethel Rohan, whose awesome “A Family Outing” is also here. I can’t tell you how honored I am to be in the same digital pages as these two amazing writers, easily two of my favorite three writers this year.
But this is about my story. “Lightning My Pilot.” Out on Bartleby Snopes today. Go read it. And I sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 🙂

Sam, both Haddington and Athelstaneford are in East Lothian, Scotland. Just saying.
Oh, I know! I looked at a lot of cloud pics on Zemanta, but I couldn’t pass up a photo of Scotland! 🙂
Aye, but it’s tagged ‘English’ up there!
I think it’s labeling the caption as being written in English.
