Cassette From My Ex: Story Accepted

Found out late last night from Jason that my story submission got accepted for the book version of Cassette From My Ex. Woohoo!

Currently, there are sixty stories slated for the anthology… and mine is among that list (Jason sent out an email to all the folks who were in the 60). The book comes out later this Fall, though depending on how the layouts go… there’s not a 100% guarantee that all sixty will make the final cut.

Here are a few opening lines that Jason included in his email, as an example of some of the stories to be found in the book:

“At first, I thought she was an alcoholic lesbian.”

“He smelled like a bagel–a garlic bagel with vanilla nut raisin cream cheese.”

“I was an Asian guy with long hair who was into Heavy Metal; she was a Latvian dancer who liked to chain-smoke Camels.”

“It started with some letters in the mail from a tall redheaded sailor.”

“My first kiss ended in bloodshed.”

“At nineteen, I had violently violet hair and ate mostly egg whites, grapefruit, and cheese.”

“Long ago, in a city I will not name, I loved a woman, and she punished me for it.”

Can’t wait for the final list. Really looking forward to seeing the cover and the insides… and really hoping I make this last cut.
