One of my short stories came out in The Literary Hatchet this week! It's free to read online, or a paper copy can be purchased via Amazon or CreateSpace.
To read the free e-copy go to the website, click on "Issues" at the top of the page, and scroll down until you see the above cover, which is Issue #16.
To purchase a paper copy, go to CreateSpace or Amazon.
My story is Salvation Lottery.
Plus, I had a different story come out in Cheapjack Pulp two weeks ago, which I already posted about. But it doesn't hurt to post again, right?
The paper copy does not come out for three months, but you can read it free online. If that link doesn't work for you, go to the website, scroll down to "detective/horror" under the cover above, and click on For Love of the Hunt, which is my story.
I fiddled around with my blog a bit this past week so I could get the covers of my various publications up on the front page. Plus, I added a "Contact Me" page and a "Search This Blog," which is really mostly for me. Sometimes I want to find a specific post, but I have to search through everything to do so, because I don't remember when I posted it. So now I can search for it.
