Would you love me if I was a worm/whale/lanternfly?
They came to find love but all they found was death until…
“Full of Sound and Fury” finally available for you to read. I dedicate this to all the spotted lantern flies I’ve killed in an effort to minimize the invasive species and also to my husband. I wouldn’t be able to write love if he didn’t show me how to live it.
I’ve been submitting to the Furious Fiction contests for 3 years now. I was once long-listed (for a short then published in FFM) but today my story went up on the shortlist and was actually showcased on the site!
I have a story coming out Nov 30 in Heartlines Spec I can’t wait to share with you all. It’s a fantasy “epic” told in poetic prose about a pair of lovers rediscovering each other across lifetimes through song.
We are SO close to reaching this stretch goal. Just $6 away! And if you back the kickstarter you don’t only get access to my short but to the amazing stories by Angelique Fawns. Her work is always fun to read. And this is lite-horror so stories you can enjoy with the whole family.
This short flash of mine is ALL about that. Give my story: “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA)” a read, you’ll never think of CAPTCHA’s the same way again: https://www.cosmoramaofficial.com/fiction/captcha
And let me know in the comments how many hydrants do you see?
So proud to say this story of mine will be printed in this anthology all about subverting/place with tropes. Mine is a tropeception.
I play with the trope “it was all a dream” by exploring the idea of dreams as a desire, a fantasy, and a hope that keeps one going in a world where the dreams themselves must be purchased because I fear one day commercialization will bring us there.
I’ll let you all know when it’s available! I also have some other future publications to announce soon.
