There is much to savour (and spit out, of course) in the writing life, but every so often something happens that is so awesome you just can't help but sing it out.
Today my story "Skinks," which was the winner of the 2016 Fiddlehead Best Story Award and appeared the journal, is the 11th entry into the sublime 2017 Short Story Advent Calendar, a supercool initiative by the good folks over at Hingston & Olsen. The stories are fantastic, the design one of a kind, and the pride (and gratitude) I'm feeling at being a part of it is indescribable.
If you like stories, there's almost nothing better. And if you haven't gotten yours, don't worry, you still can and just use it next year! Sure, the cover says 2017 but the stories are numbered 1-25: who needs to know?
