Second Storyville column is up at Lit Reactor

My second column is now up at Litreactor.com, and it talks about how to write a cover letter, your bio, and the ways that you can stand out when you submit your stories to editors at magazines and journals around the world. Hope it helps you out a little bit. More columns and review to come.

My review of Shannon Cain’s The Necessity of Certain Behaviors is live at The Nervous Breakdown

My review of Shannon Cain’s collection of dark, sexy, humorous stories is live up at The Nervous Breakdown. This book was the winner of the 2011 Drue Heinz prize, which yielded us the fantastic The Physics of Imaginary Objects by Tina May Hall last year. Shannon really put together a compelling book, one that should definitely be on your list of titles “to-read.”
