It may come as no shock or surprise to you that I’m a bit twisted. I’m that person in critique group who points out a character and says, “He’s going to die.” The author might follow up with, “Well, actually, no…” but I shake my head and insist, “Nope, he’s going to die.” Because, you know, someone always dies in the story. Who cares if it’s a romance? Pfft!
You can also hear me cackle maniacally as I kick my characters off cliffs, turn them into sociopaths, and vaporize love interests.
Yeah, I know. I’m twisted.
So when my short story, Happily Ever After, was accepted into an anthology, A Bit of a Twist, it just seemed right.
This is a first for me. See, up to this point, I’ve either self-published my work or contributed to compilations where I was invited to participate. I did submit some of my work to a publisher in the past, and it was rejected, but this story is my first submitted piece that was accepted through the whole gate-keeper process.
Last week, the anthology hit the digital shelves! I’d love it if you picked up a copy on Amazon, because I had fun writing this story, or you can read it for free through Kindle Unlimited if you have it.
Do you like short stories? Are you a bit twisted? P.S. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and wonderful Holiday season.
