If There's a Hell Below, I'll Still Be in the Anthology

Well, since other people have already spread the news before I could, I might as well as announce it here. My short story If There's a Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go will appear in The Best of Thuglit - Volume 1. I received the contract in the mail last night. It was a huge surprise when Big Daddy Thug e-mailed me the news about the book. I couldn't be happier.

For those who don't know, If There's a Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go is a noir piece set in New Orleans after the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. It was my little metophorical commentary on the shameful ignorance of the powers-that-shouldn't-be to the tragedy people had to go through - but with guns and a meat cleaver!

I can't wait for this anthology to come out next Spring. Yeah, we have to wait a year, but it is so going to be worth it.

"It was my little metophorical commentary..."

That's why Bryon calls you Mr. MFA.

I'm not good at keeping secrets either, but I AM good at eating pancakes.

Thanks, guys. It's turned out to be a really really stressful and sad day for me, so I really appreciate it.
