Story collection a finalist for the 2012 Autumn House Fiction Prize

Very pleased and honored to announce that my story collection, The Camp at Cutthroat Lake, has been selected as a finalist for Autumn House Press’s 2012 Fiction Prize! Stewart O’Nan is the judge. Winner to be announced in the fall. Many of you heard “Tower Eight,” a story from the collection that I read at the last residency. Short fiction collections are a tough sell, so I’m reveling in this one.
