Published! Word came in today that I'm going to be published in the September issue of Toasted Cheese. I will, of course, remind y'all on THE DAY. The story is the flash fiction piece, "Games."

The other good news is that my brothers are in town.

Ray took one look at the older (and now, shorter!) of the two, Matt, who'd buzzed his head a couple of days ago, and bawled. And bawled and bawled and bawled. And bawled. While her mother held her tightly and laughed. And laughed and laughed and laughed. And laughed. Eventually Matt charmed her out of it.

Andy, sixteen, on the other hand was accepted immediately. He is Shaggy. No, I mean, he's Shaggy. I got used to the idea of the youngest son of my clean-cut father...well, being Shaggy after about half an hour.

They left here a little after ten, saying that they'd call when they got back from Mountain Biking, there being Mountains available in the area.

No news yet.
