My story “Weight Loss” is being featured today on Instafiction, a great social media platform that gives you access to online short fiction every day. Check out the overall project, which you can follow on Twitter and Facebook; it’s a great way to be exposed to new authors and venues.
My short fiction piece “Weight Loss” is now live and available to read at Used Furniture Review!
Christopher McCormick of The Review Review has reviewed Monkeybicycle9 and has included some really wonderful things about “Shapeway.” Here’s a preview…
“There is plenty to appreciate in Monkeybicylce9, but “Shapeway” – unbelievably Ms. Morrissey’s fiction debut – demands to be singled out by this reviewer… I’d be surprised if Ms. Morrissey isn’t an avid reader of Alice Munro- she has the same compassion for her characters, imperfect but morally tuned, and a similar ability to write quiet sentences full of longing and heart, vacant of sentimentality. I’d be surprised, too, if I don’t see more stories soon from Colleen Morrissey.”
Read the review in its entirety here. I’m so glad people are enjoying the story. Thanks so much, Christopher!
“Some of the stories are complex, layered narratives, with an early example of this being ‘Shapeway’ by Colleen Morrissey…”
Please read the rest of the review at Chicago Ex-Patriate. Thank you very much, Jamie!
