“The Muscle and the Eye” to be Published by the Southeast Review

I am ecstatic to let you know that my story “The Muscle and the Eye” will appear in a forthcoming issue of The Southeast Review!  I’m honored to be included in such a fine publication.  My story, they tell me, will be part of the fall issue.

Check out the current issue, too, because my good friend Jennifer M. Colatosti has a piece appearing in it.

Upcoming Reading with Paging Columbus

I will be reading some prose (and perhaps poetry) at the upcoming Paging Columbus reading on November 6th from 6-8 p.m. at the OSU Urban Arts Space in Columbus, Ohio. The theme is “Appetite, Hunger, and Craving,” a perfect subject for the first gnawings of winter.

Fellow readers are Maggie Smith and Okla Elliott.  Here’s a link to the Facebook event page— please come by!

“What makes your stomach or your soul growl? Amuse your bouche and brain at Paging Columbus: Appetite, Hunger, and Craving on Thursday, November 6. Tempting you with literary delicacies will be Colleen Morrissey, Maggie Smith, and Okla Elliott.  As usual, our event runs from 6-8 PM at OSU Urban Arts Space, with readings hot off the griddle at 6:30.  There will of course be light refreshments, refreshing company, and absolutely delicious poetry, prose, and art.”

O. Henry Prize Stories 2014 Announced

As a follow-up to my last, very exciting announcement: The full table of contents for the 2014 O. Henry Prize Stories has been announced.  You can read about the collection in Publishers Weekly (which has the new volume’s cover), the L.A. Times, Publishers Marketplace, and Mediabistro.

Needless to say, I am incredibly honored to be among such good company.

The anthology will be released by Anchor Books on September 9, but you can pre-order it here.  You can also read the story that will be included in the collection, “Good Faith,” in its original publication in the Cincinnati Review, Issue 9.2.

“Good Faith” to be in O. Henry Prize Stories 2014!

I’ve had to sit on this incredibly exciting news for months now, and I can finally share: My story “Good Faith” will be included in The O. Henry Prize Stories 2014!

The full table of contents hasn’t been released yet, so there is no official announcement for me to link you to, but you can go ahead and pre-order the anthology from Random House, due out in September.

There will be more fun things like my thoughts on the story and being included in the anthology, to be released by the PEN/O. Henry folks in the coming months. I will keep you updated.

The story was originally published in The Cincinnati Review, issue 9, volume 2 (Winter 2013), so check them out if you can’t wait for the anthology.

Very excited and very honored.
