Cemetery Riots Celebrates Start of September; It’s About Time Galley Received
It was delayed a couple of months, but, originally listed as published in June, CEMETERY RIOTS (see July 6, et al.) has made its mailbox debut today. It looks worth the wait too, a handsome volume and with an A-list of writers adorning the contents — among whom, it would appear, is me. The cover’s subtitle is “A Collection of Dark Cautionary Tales” and, true to this promise, my entry is “The Re-Possessed” in which it is found it is not a good thing to stiff (to pardon the expression) an undertaker with friends in the right places. If you haven’t gotten a copy of CEMETERY RIOTS already, more information can be found here.
Today was also the first day of the weekend’s local arts fair, of which the Bloomington Writers Guild’s Spoken Word Stage is a part, and in which I will have a reading Sunday, but more on that later. For today’s, or more properly late yesterday’s contribution to The Writing Life we will go instead to Main Street Rag Publishing which, after a brief false start (an attachment sent for a different book), has sent galleys to proofread for IT’S ABOUT TIME (cf. August 12, June 29, et al.), though I may not get to them till Monday, Labor Day. My story in this one is a reprint, originally published in THE FICTION PRIMER, December 1988, about a man who discovers his true love in (ahem!) a timely fashion. For more information on this one press here.
