Two New Publications to Start the New Year

Exciting start to 2018 – I have two new publications up today!

First is a poem entitled Urban Hobo Signs in issue 5 of the awesome Riggwelter Journal. Managing Editor Amy Kinsman does an amazing job putting together a quality journal every month, so check them out!

Second, a short fiction piece called Road Rash, in the inaugural issue of Coffin Bell, a new online journal of dark literature edited by Tamara Burross Grisanti and Sarah V. Parson. I was very excited that my creepy little story fit so well into their beautiful malevolency. Another great journal to watch out for!
