I’ve been made a temporary admin over at Dagda Publishing’s Facebook page today — I’ll be sending people invites to “like” their page. Keeping up with Dagda on Facebook is a great way to treat yourself to some great work from new and emerging writers.
If you’re a writer, it’s also a great place to submit your own work and interact with a lot of talented and goodnatured people who also enjoy writing. It really is a warm community of people with a lot to offer.
Also over at Dead Snakes today is a great piece from my friend and fellow poet, Dennis Villelmi. It is entitled “Bad Coffee.” Keep an eye on Dennis — this guy is on the way up.
Three poems of mine are featured today over at the excellent poetry e-zine, Dead Snakes. The first is entitled “And What’s New With You?” The second and third are entitled “Spite” and “Politics (A Haiku).”
Thanks to Stephen Jarrell Williams for once again allowing me to be a part of the community at Dead Snakes. It’s great fun!
Here’s an update by The Free Lance-Star on the “Route 29 Stalker” murder case I covered as a cub reporter in Culpeper, VA in the 1990’s.
It would be amazing to finally discover his identity after 17 years.
My friend Jason Sturner had a great poem published today by Dagda Publishing in the United Kingdom.
Keep up the great work, Jason!
I began my Saturday morning with some very nice news from the gang over at Dead Beats Literary Blog. They will soon publish my first short story, “The Disappearance of Little Tommy Drummond.” The story will appear in the coming months.
“The Disappearance of Little Tommy Drummond” gets us acquainted with Kira Manning, a small business owner in the tiny town of Willibee, Massachusetts. Reflecting on the recent abduction of a local child, she realizes that loss and violence can permanently transform a small town’s identity. The story was inspired by my news coverage of “The Route 29 Stalker” in Culpeper, VA in the 1990’s, and his abduction and apparent murder of Alicia Showalter Reynolds. To date, the case is unsolved.
Thank you for kindly accepting my story, Dead Beats. 🙂
Every Day Poets notified me this morning that they will feature a short poem of mine, entitled “Bumblebee,” in the coming months.
Thanks, Every Day Poets! 🙂
