PicFic: One Man's Long, Hard Journey to Glory

Well, it's hard to believe I've finally found myself on this stage.

First off, I'd like to thank my family for their sometimes wavering but ultimately steadfast support. I love you guys. I'd also like to thank my friends for their encouragement and also for their razzes. I hate most of you guys. No, that's not true- I hate ALL of you guys. Especially you, Eddie Socko. You've been a real jerk for years.

Of course, I'd like to thank the Academy for recognizing greatness in all of its forms, from the expansive to the microscopic.

Lastly, I'd like to thank PicFic's founder and editor, J.S. Graustein, without whom none of this would've been possible. I applaud your bravery and vision. Thank you for taking a chance on a poor kid from the east coast.

That being said, do bring your attention here. And also here.

Thank you, all.

I Am(The)Legend(ary)

....alright, that looked much funnier in my head...

The Legendary! New Moon! Issue #2!

There you will find a new story by yours truly.

The Legendary is a great (newish) Ezine with a colorful mix of content and extremely easy-to-work-with editors. Many thanks to Jim Parks for cracking the door open for me. So be sure to check out The Wealth of the Meager. And the picture of the awesome boxing kangaroo on The Legendary's title page. It makes me smile every time I see it.

Happy Spring, all.

RPM Premiere Issue...Outstanding.

Ruthless Peoples Magazine.

New, fun, smart, sassy. All things good. Exactly what a premiere issue should be.

The issue is offered in a wonderful, free PDF download, and I am flattered and honored to have my little story, "Hambone Sizzlewitt," resting comfortably in its electronic pages among so many great pieces.

Thanks to all those involved, and especially to the editor, Dom, for his patience and hard work. I can't wait to see what's next.

Do check it out: Ruthless Peoples Magazine
