I am proud to announce that the Burnt Tongues anthology, in which my short story Paper appears, not only won the 2014 This Is Horror award for Anthology of the Year, but is also nominated for a 2014 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in an Anthology!
My short story “Dirt” just won the 2014 Willamette Writers Kay Snow fiction contest! “Dirt” is based on an excerpt from the second novel in my Moron and X series. I get to be all fancy and attend an awards banquet on August 2nd. Pardon me while I let it go to my head (and subsequently forget how many rejections I’ve received in the last month…)
Turns out I’m the first place winner of the Women’s National Book Association 2013 writing contest with my short story “Uncertainty.” Please enjoy this picture of me being happy:
