Root is out

I've been so busy doing edits and redrafting that short story, not to mention playing with my son, that I'm a little late announcing this. My story, Root, is out in Shiny Issue 5. I originally wrote that story to submit to Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling's The Coyote Road. Ellen liked it and was very positive. Terri thought it was too similar to another story by a big name author, so in the end they passed on it. I'm always grateful for positive feedback in a rejection; it helps me keep subbing and subbing until I can sell a piece. Ellen's been very generous to me over the years.

It took me several years to find a home for Root, but Shiny seems like the perfect place for it.
