I hate my garden nemesis a little less after learning the creative non-fiction tale of my armadillo exploits was chosen for publication in the spring 2011 edition of The Binnacle.
The Binnacle’s editor, Gerard NeCastro, said he enjoyed my work and I should be proud because they received nearly 500 submissions for the edition and selected about thirty for publication.
Am I proud? Yes. This is my first non-fiction publication. (My shoulder might hurt a little from bending my arm backwards to pat myself on the back.) The piece will be published in The Binnacle’s print and e-book editions, as well as a limited presentation and audio presentation on their website.
The Binnacle’s spring edition will be ready around May 16th. To purchase a copy and read a new, longer version of Dirty Hands, go here.
I almost hope my armadillo comes back this year. If he does, I might name him—perhaps Arnie or Alex. Or maybe I’ll just stick with asshole.
