I’m from Maine and I live in the woods. My email is sporadic and my snail mail is based on the whimsy of the local crows. Thus, I’m always inordinately pleased when those in the big world outside my gate read my words and give me little boosts of encouragement. To wit, thanks are due…
Thanks to the kind folks at the Faulkner-Wisdom Foundation for naming one of my short stories as a semi-finalist this year. Also many thanks to them for choosing the manuscript of my new Maine novella as a semi-finalist as well.
Thanks to Patasola Press for including my work in their upcoming anthology. The ever-amazing Lisa Marie Basile is tireless in her support of writers.
Thanks to “Drunken Boat” for including a portfolio of my works from “A Year in Oblivion” in their current issue.
Thanks to “Gemini” for choosing “Mud Season” as a ‘noteworthy’ story from the one-thousand-plus they received.
For those of us who labor in obscurity, a pat on the back beats a kick in the butt every time. Grateful thanks to those who offer those pats of encouragement.
