Two Reprints Out Today in Luna Station Quarterly & Flash Fiction Online

It’s a double news kind of day! I have two reprints out today: “Forestborn” in Luna Station Quarterly #046 and “The Bones and Their Girl” in Flash Fiction Online.

Forestborn” will always be special to me because it was my first pro-published story (originally appearing in Gamut). Years later, I still consider it one of my better stories. It’s a tale of love, persistence, homemaking, and letting go, taking place in a cabin in the forest.

I’m so happy to share it with you now—this is the first time it’s available to read online for free.

Read “Forestborn” on the Luna Station Quarterly website and/or buy the beautiful issue on Amazon, Weightless Books, or from the Publisher on Gumroad.

The Bones and Their Girl” first appeared in Syntax & Salt, and now you can read it again in the Special Reprint Issue of Flash Fiction Online (June 2021) edited by Samantha L. Strong. This story deals with love, secrets, death, vulnerability, and hidden hope, featuring two lovers, art, and bones.

Each month, Flash Fiction Online posts a new story on their website on Fridays, and mine will be up on June 11. If you can’t wait, grab a copy of the issue on Amazon, Weightless Books, or directly from the Publisher.
