I realized the other day I hadn’t posted anything on this site for a while. The Puppet’s Tattered Clothes is indeed now available from Bartleby Snopes.
There are some short stories “in the hopper” but they need re-vision. I’ve been working hard on a second novel. It’s something I’ve been working on several years, and I’m determined to finish it.
I feel like I write very slowly, that the process is slow. I do a lot of re-vision, and I discover things about the characters as I go.
I’m learning a lot about the characters in the new novel. They’re a randy bunch, and their stories need care. But I’m at the point where I feel they’ve taken on a life of their own, and that’s exciting.
Bartleby Snopes will release my novella “The Puppet’s Tattered Clothes” on August 26th. It’s available for pre-order now at bartleby snopes
“Puppet’ has been in the works for a number of years. It’s about a young man living in Chicago, struggling with the past and his future.
Bartleby Snopes will be publishing my novella The Puppet’s Tattered Clothes in August. They’ve recently published an excerpt. Here’s a link.
Here’s a link to a new story published by Cigale Literary.
Cigale Literary has agreed to publish my short story Embrace. Thank you Cigale.
Embrace has been around a while. Some years ago, I saw an exhibition of photographer Josef Sudek’s work with my son at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I was entranced. Embrace is based on several of his photographs and on Sudek himself—in a completely fictional way. It was interesting to build a story around visual images. I hope anyone who reads it enjoys it.
The story will be published June 30th; I will provide a link at that time.
