Make That Four

The results of the 5th Annual Micro Award have been announced, and the winner is ... not me. That title goes to Bruce Holland Rogers for his story “Divestiture." Runner-up this year is Aubrey Hirsch for her story “Certainty” which appeared in PANK ... the same great magazine that also published my story "Seven Items In Jason Reynolds’ Jacket Pocket, Two Days After His Suicide, As Found By His Eight-Year-Old Brother, Grady," which was the runner-up last year. So congrats to Bruce and Aubrey, and congrats to PANK! What about the finalists? you ask. Well, there were a few finalists, one of them being my story "Fright X," which now makes this four years in a row I've been recognized by the Micro Award. Am I bummed I didn't win? Not at all. As they say, it's just an honor to be nominated.

Anyway, if you haven't already, you can check out "Fright X" here, as well as an interview I did about the award and flash fiction here.
