I am so, so thrilled to announce that my story "Florida" will soon appear in Joyland.
There's nothing better than the feeling of finally getting a piece published after sending it around to what felt like a hundred journals! It happened so beautifully, too. The New York editor got back to me two days after I submitted it (!!), saying that she herself is from Florida, and was delighted by that synchronicity. It's amazing how insurmountably difficult things can seem before you have accomplished them—and how easy they seem to have been afterward.
Oh, the trickiness of time.
Stay tuned for "Florida." It's coming soon……………
