:) Sold A New Story
Hi Folks,
Just learned a few weeks ago that a new story of mine has been bought for an upcoming anthology being released in the Fall 2014 by Exile Editions, a Canadian publishing company with a 40+ year literary history. This anthology is called "Fractured: Tales of the Canadian Post-Apocolypse". My story is called "Last Man Standing". Oddly and happily I wrote this story "on the fly" for submission to this while finishing another story called: "My Last Story: Hemingway's Cigar or It Must Have Been in the Water" :) . This writing happened while in Las Vegas last August on a holiday seeing Celine Dion's and Rod Stewart's stellar shows. Didn't gamble, didn't drink (well one glass of wine) or carouse… but got a couple good stories :), lots of sunshine and some good walking and exploring… plus a tad of thinkin' . Am so pleased with this evolution… and so so grateful for the Angel, the Muse, My Muse, continuing to land on my shoulder once-in-awhile… albeit in the strangest of places, moments and juxtapositions with life. The creative "way" I suppose... Best wishes to all here… and thank you for reading, and most of all... be good to you…

For Frank
Sending along a hearty congratulations to you Frank!

I just found this thread. Let us know where we can find your story when the book is published!

And...what? No "carousing"...in Vegas?

Best to you,

FrankFromCanada 02-11-2014 06:08 PM

Tnx WolfDog
Ah,,, thanks Wolfdog.
Very kind. Yes I will let everyone know where/how it can be bought when book comes out. Sometime in fall 2014. I know the publisher has a U.S.A/International distribution programme. Kind of exciting to have a story selected for this anthology.
Yes I know… no carousing in Vegas of all places ! I just seem to slip into a nice creative zone while there… get invigorated… inspired… and re-charged… odd eh… But I do love seeing the shows by the musicians/singers/performers on stage there… I love that… Be good to you and thank you again for your note. Means a lot to me.
