Cassette From My Ex: Officially a Contributor
Got a nice email from Jason and the folks at Cassette From My Ex – I’m officially a contributor, and got a nice sneak peek at the cover art.
Funny that, over a year ago, I happened across the site randomly, only to find out Jason was involved. On top of that, when I first got offered to chance to submit a story… I ended up turning him down.
At the time, I was way into working on my Colourful Echo project, and wasn’t sure I could make the deadline. I got a bit of an extension, and ended up writing up my story while visiting family over Christmas vacation.
I’m very excited to see the final thing, and to hold the book in my hands. While I’ve been published before (I’ve had a few poems here and there accepted in literary journals), this is likely the most “public” thing I’ve been involved with.
Here’s a little exchange I had with Liz, that kinda sums it up:
Liz: You’re published!
Me: Well, I’ve been published before…
Liz: But people are going to read this!
I’ll post more when the book’s available. It’s due out in October, from St. Martin’s Press. You can also pre-order it on Amazon here: Cassette from My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves
