I was surprised and delighted to learn Steven McDermott, editor of Storyglossia, has nominated my story "Snake Dreams" along with five other stories from the Fiction Prize Issue. Thank you, Steven! And congratulations to Kirsten, Steven, Theresa, Christiana and Gabrielle.
I was also honored with a Pushcart nomination from Rebel Press. Thank you Rebel Press! And congratulations to Susan DiPlacido, Tom Saunders, Don Capone, T.J. Forester and Marcus Grimm.
I also picked up the 2007 Pushcart and read Kim Chinquee's "Formation" and noticed Xujun Eberlein received special mention for her piece, "The Death of a Red Guard." Both women are extremely talented and I'm happy to see they've been recognized with this honor.
