“And the whole town’s waitin’ just to hear me yell”

Over at Jersey Devil Press, we have a whole mess of cool projects in the works. We’re working on a special Halloween-themed issue of the magazine, we have the special novella issue coming out later this summer, and we have not one but two books coming out later this year: Eirik Gumeny’s Exponential Apocalypse: Dead PresidentsContinue reading ““And the whole town’s waitin’ just to hear me yell””

Jersey Devil Press is full of superheros…

Or animals. Because for some reason, our Avengers-inspired assembly of Jersey Devil All-Stars didn’t wind up writing about superheros, but about animals. Every story. Which is awesome, because we’re talking about stories from Kimberly Lojewski,  Ryan Werner, y.t. sumner, and Hilary Gan. Hobos and alligators, lost dogs and too many pudding cups, talking birds and suicide,Continue reading “Jersey Devil Press is full of superheros…”

The Jersey Devil puts on its reading glasses

The April 2012 issue of Jersey Devil Press is online, and this month, we’re getting all cultured. And stuff. Many of the stories deal with writers, literary references, rejection — the grist of the everyday writing mill. And a couple of the stories deal with Art. Capital A. But don’t worry, we’re not looking down ourContinue reading “The Jersey Devil puts on its reading glasses”

Smile like you’re up to something

Over at Jersey Devil Press, we’re at it again. What, exactly, we’re up to, though, is a little harder to pin down — this issue is all about ambiguity! But let’s just say we’ve got the end of the world to worry about, ghosts to interview, cat entrails to clean up, and loads of otherContinue reading “Smile like you’re up to something”

Jersey Devil Press announces its first-ever novella contest

Heads up, writers and readers: Jersey Devil Press, the magazine I work for, is announcing its first-ever novella contest. Which is awesome for two reasons: 1) Even though novellas seem to be coming back into vogue and lots of publishers are dabbling in contests of one sort of another, they still don’t get the attentionContinue reading “Jersey Devil Press announces its first-ever novella contest”

Merry freakin’ Christmas (don’t worry, we do Thanksgiving and New Year’s, too)

It’s been a good week for publications. On Monday, my story “Barefoot in the Guadalupe” appeared in Red Dirt Review, and the same day I got word that I’ll have a story in Scintilla sometime in the future. Then today, Jersey Devil Press‘s special Holiday Half-Issue my colleagues and I have been working on turned upContinue reading “Merry freakin’ Christmas (don’t worry, we do Thanksgiving and New Year’s, too)”

New publication

Remember when I was sitting in at Ryan Werner’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit project? Well, as of today, one of the stories from those sessions appears in issue 24 of the excellent Jersey Devil Press. The story is “Colony.” And I’m super-psyched, because JDP is awesome. You can also download a .pdf ofContinue reading “New publication”
