Order up a copy of Press 53 Spotlight! It’s got five amazing poets and two killer short story writers, and hell they even published three of my stories too.
- Whorehouse Piano
- Kingdom Come
On January 23, Press 53’s Kevin Watson organized and hosted an awesome book launch at the Gallery of the Arts in Winston-Salem. It was awesome, though my reading of “Kingdom Come” had to be smoothed over by generous helpings of white wine
More great news. My short story “Kingdom Come,” a moonshining story I wrote longingly from San Francisco before we moved here to Asheville, has received 2nd prize in the 2009 Open Awards.
Press 53, an indie press out of Winston-Salem that focuses largely on short story collections (and God bless them for that), sponsors the contest. The judge was Rusty Barnes, founder of Night Train Magazine and author of the flash fiction collection Breaking it Down.
The story will be published in the Press 53 Open Award Anthology, due out this fall.
