I have news though, so I have to update this.
I had a story accepted in the September issue of Sparkle and Blink titled "It sings us both to Sleep," which is an excerpt from a story titled "Weak Nights" which will be in the second collection.
I'm still being told the story "What you're waiting for" will appear in the upcoming issue 8 of Instant City. It is also slated a spot in the second collection.
I recently covered an event for LitQuake, link below
More news on the up and coming.
I was recently listening to the album "Help Wanted Nights" by The Good Life and I wanted to tell Tim Kasher if Raymond Carver were in a band he would make this music. Then I wondered if Alice Munro were in a band what would that sound like? Emmylou Harris maybe? Then I wanted to start a forum to double up music with the authors we're reading. I often read in diners while eating breakfast and on my walk back home I can get in maybe two songs, sometimes those songs really sync up like I didn't finish reading, like art and emotion just shifted mediums.
Anyone else put their favorite authors in bands or music genres?
