BIG THANKS FOR A SHORT STORY

The act of writing may be solitary, a single brain in a single body in a lonely chair in a dark corner. But stories rarely make it to the shelf without help.

CARNIEPUNK is an anthology which includes 14 authors. Behind those 14 authors are an editor - Adam Wilson - assistant editor, all kinds of lovely bookish people and artists at Simon & Schuster, a stellar agent in Suzie Townsend, and enthusiastic first readers and supportive (or at least begrudgingly accepting) families and friends.

Huge thanks to the early readers of my short story, Recession of the Divine:

Brent Swanson
Alex Reagan
Joshua Roots
Jolanda Jongedijk

THERE'S ART IN HERE!

The five year old happened upon CARNIEPUNK. While I'm thankful that he can't yet read all the words, he was pretty thrilled with the look of the book ("there's art in here!"). You, too, can be thrilled by the look of the book on July 23rd. :)
