Two New Stories Published!

Hi all, I’m back from my trip to Mexico, and I will have numerous postings and pictures to share – BUT – in the meantime while I was away, I’ve had two new stories that had been accepted for publication get put up on their respective online journal sites.

I’d love to know what you may think of them, PLEASE FEEL FREE to leave comments here on either of the stories.

The first story is a flash fiction piece called The Return of the Lone Ranger, published by Bartleby Snopes. This story is a kind of snapshot character study, and a bit of a melancholic homage to the kinds of innocent shows that were on television in the 1950’s and 60’s.

The second story is also flash fiction. Lancaster has been published by Halfway Down the Stairs.  I have visited the city of Lancaster, PA many times, and it is nothing like the Amish farming community nearby. It is more gritty and urban. In the center of Lancaster you will find an art school, and there are many art galleries sprinkled around the downtown area. This story is about a man who comes in contact with a free spirited artist, and what happens as a result.

Thanks for reading!!

  1. Big congratulations to you on your publications. I will read them soon and let you know what I think. Woohoo!

  2. Awesome news, CD. You continue to inspire.

  3. Really liked both of them. But the Lone Ranger had me thinking about it after, wondering what had happened in those lost years: why his sidekick left, the changing landscape of the west during that time period, and today’s different perceptions of what a hero is. Thanks for sharing them!

    • Thanks so much Wren, I really appreciate your comments. It’s always a little nerve wracking when new stories go up – it’s so hard just to get them accepted to begin with, then you never know if people are actually reading them. Thanks for your readership and support!

  4. Your stories are great. Have you ever considered to publish them or self-publish them as a literary collection?

    • Hey George, thanks for your comment. In addition to the 5 stories that have been published so far, I’ve posted some of my flash fiction stories here on my blog. I haven’t really considered self-publishing a book of my short stories, but if enough of them get published by small journals… maybe I would. 🙂

  5. Well done Carol! It’s always so exciting to get work published – makes it all worthwhile!
