Still Life with Iguana

October 6, 2013

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.
