Short story upcoming from MLR

September 6, 2011

MLR Press let me know that my short story Full Circle has gone to proofreading, which means it should release in a couple of weeks if all goes well. I’m grateful to MLR for being willing to publish this story, because it isn’t a typical romance short. It has romance and love and sadness, and the ending is happy, but the main character/narrator doesn’t settle down to a happy ever after with his lover. I had one beta reader upset about this. She’s a purist on the HEA front. My other readers loved the story as it stood, so I’m expecting a mixed reaction but hopefully most people will like it.

I also found out the cover for Full Circle will be MLR’s “Got 20 Minutes” standard with two naked guys. Can’t complain, as I understand the finances of a separate cover for every short story would be prohibitive. Hopefully people will read the blurb and not expect angst-free hot sex from this story, based on a glance at the cover. So I’m excited and a little nervous to see Full Circle approaching its release date.
