I’m Late! The Story is Up!

I was traveling when the acceptance came, and just very, very muddled with the arrival of October–yes, these are excuses, but wait! It’s good news–I’m very excited to announce that my story, “The Giveaway Box,” is now up at Abyss & Apex! (picture me grinning from ear to ear!)

This story started with the title as a prompt. That made me wonder What giveaway box? What’s inside? Who’s looking? Of course, giveaway boxes are common at yard sales, and that’s where this one went. This story is set in my former neighborhood of Clintonville, a part of Columbus with sidewalks that come and go, large trees, and lots and lots of pedestrians and cyclists–all ideal for yard sales. And for little bits of magic infusing life around the edges.

I’m so happy that this story found it’s home here, at a magazine known for the beauty of its stories, and I hope you’ll read and enjoy it. If so, please consider dropping a tip in A&A’s donate jar, won’t you? Thanks.
