Still Life with Iguana

My novella, “The Journalist and the Moon,” to be re-titled “Still Life with Iguana,” won the Iron Horse Literary Review Single Author Competition for a Novella, judged by Bill Roorbach. On their blog here. What is it with me and novellas? My first book, The Naughty Yard, was a novella (available now in ebook form from Obelisk Library). Most of my novels are short (under 200 pages) but they are getting longer.

Working on revisions of the novella now, a few days late, the traveling and being a sudden single father gets in the way. “Still Life with Iguana” will be published in two months alone as issue 15.6 of Iron Horse Literary Review.

Wild changes in the old life. I now have custody of my child, extracted her from a horrible future in Tijuana. We are hanging out in Portland for a while and then flying to France for 3 weeks, then will come back and settle into a new life in Los Angeles.
