My story, “All of the Cuddles with None of the Pain,” is available for the listening or the reading at Podcastle.org as of this morning. Personally, I recommend listening — the story has a full cast of ten readers and they all did a wonderful job. Hearing the different voices makes for a unique listening experience and (I think) enhances the emotional impact of the story. Hope you enjoy!
Many thanks to Jen Albert, Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali, Graeme Dunlop, and everyone else at Podcastle for selecting my story and for doing such great justice to it in the reading!
Rhonda Parrish’s newest anthology, and the culmination of her Magical Menageries series, is out today! You can get Equus here in paperback or Kindle edition. My tiny story, “A Mother Unicorn’s Advice to Her Daughter” is among the 19 stories in this collection. If you like horses or speculative fiction or both, check it out!
A big thanks to Rhonda for selecting my story. She was a dream to work with.
I have some news that is fairly good and may even get really good that I’m dying to share, but I don’t want to jinx myself. So I’ll just leave you with that tantalizing, vague statement and ask you to wish me luck!
