Shortlisted for the Lightship International Short Story Prize

Very pleased to announce that my as-yet unpublished story, “The Money Pill,” has been shortlisted for Lightship Publishing’s International Short Story Prize 2012! Please keep your fingers crossed. Regardless of whether the story wins, it will appear in a new anthology published in the UK by Alma Books, and I’ve been invited to read at an awards ceremony in Kingston-upon-Hull this November.
