I am ridiculously pleased to announce my short-story, “Snowbound,” received a second publication! I only learned about the surprise selection a few weeks ago, on my birthday of all days. Happy birthday indeed!
Originally published under the short-story collective, Texas’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction, by Z Publishing, “Snowbound,” alongside a shortlist of other up-and-coming authors (also from the original series), were selected to appear in the new collective, America’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction. “Snowbound” is published in Volume II.
Thank you all for your ongoing support! I dare say it, I may actually have a shot at getting the attention of a literary agent or publisher for my novel, Ruth Rises (originally titled as, Ruth).
From Z Publishing’s Website:
“There is a troubling catch-22 that exists in the world of publishing: in order to be published—at least by any of the major houses—you must already have been published. Inevitably, this cycle leaves the aspiring writer with the pressing question of where to begin. This is why, in the winter of 2017, we started our Emerging Writers series—to showcase the work of talented writers and poets across the nation who may otherwise not have had the opportunity.
Nearly two years later, those efforts have culminated in perhaps our most ambitious project to date. In America’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction, 127 of our favorite up-and-coming writers (representing all 50 states) join together to share their words. Covering a wide array of genres ranging from satire, mystery, comedy, literary fiction and more, these young talents will amaze you. Containing one story per writer, this anthology is a compelling introduction to the great wordsmiths of tomorrow.”
