The Tick Nominated for PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize

My short story THE TICK was nominated by the excellent people at Barrelhouse for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers.

Each journal is allowed to nominate four first-time writers, and there are a lot of journals out there, so the odds are much longer than that graphic implies, but I’m happy just to be nominated. After struggling so long to get anything published at all, to have my first story selected for this is a great encouragement.

Now I need to get back to writing more fiction–and better.
