Baby Made a List!

I'm beyond thrilled that Baby has made it onto a list of recommended flash fiction provided by the editors of 100 Word Story and curated by The Millions. The list includes stellar writers such as Leesa Cross-Smith, Kim Chinquee, Meg Pokrass, Kara Vernor, Stuart Dybek, and Joy Williams. Also on the list are a few anthologies including The Best Small Fictions, for which I was a consulting editor last year. It's a great list, and I couldn't be happier that Other Household Toxins is included.

Honored and thrilled.

If you're just now realizing that I've published a collection of flash fiction, welcome to the party! You can read some reviews and interviews related to the Baby HERE

If you have bought the book on Amazon, how about leaving a review (after you've read it of course). This review does not have to be positive. If you hate my Baby (monster), you can write that as well. Honest reviews are always the best reviews.

If you are a professional reviewer and would like a pdf, just send me a private message. 

If you have bought the book and also reviewed it on Amazon or elsewhere, how about sending me some gluten-free cupcakes that you've baked yourself? This is a fun activity for the whole family.

If you have already done all the above, you are a saint. Take a break.  

I must be off,
