Stories are pigeons. Flapping up out of nowhere, gobbling up scraps and crumbs, cooing frantically. And way way too often, they wing their way back home from thousands of miles away. You send them off, and curr-hee, currr-hee! they reappear on your doorstep, fluffing their feathers and glaring at you with a ruby-red eye.
So when a story that's been sent out into the world actually does land someplace else –– published! –– it's a happy day.
My "At My Back I Always Here" appears in the Fiction section of Stone Coast Review Literary Journal, Issue #3, which came out yesterday. <Insert sound of stadium cheering because, after all, fiction.>
