‘The Plunge’ to be included in Hate by Black Hare Press!

Hello folks,

I am quite happy to get to post once more before my hiatus fo an announcement. The thriller drabble (100-word story) ‘The Plunge’ that was mentioned in my post on November 13th has been accepted into the anthology Hate by Black Hare Press!

‘The Plunge’ was an experimental piece for me, as it is written in both the second person point-of-view, and in the future tense – both of which are rarely done alone, let alone together.

Hate is slated for publication on March 3rd, 2020.

My thriller drabble ‘The Plunge’ has been submitted to an an anthology. No word yet if it has been accepted.

I will be going on a bit of a hiatus for a couple months to have a much-needed surgery. As a result, the monthly Author Spotlight readings at Elissimo have been suspended, likely until February 2020. We have a lot planned for these events moving forward, so stay tuned for those details. In the meantime, everyone enjoy the Holiday Season with your loved ones, and I’ll see you in 2020!
