New fiction collection

I’m pleased to announce that Dzanc Books will be publishing my second fiction collection in 2013, tentatively titled, You Were Only Waiting for This Moment. This collection includes the novella, “I Can Make It to California Before It’s Time for Dinner,” parts of which have been featured in Avatar Review and Lamination Colony.
