I'm thrilled to officially announce that I have sold my short story collection, Night Beast and Other Stories, to Grove Atlantic! Thanks so much to my fabulous agent, Ross Harris, and my editor at Grove, Nicole Nyhan. Also thanks to the many friends who helped me get this far and to Kelly Link for selecting the title story ("Night Beast") as the winner of The Masters Review's 2016 Fall Fiction Contest. I'm very excited about this deal and can't wait to have the physical book in my hands. Meanwhile, I've got a novel to write! More about that later.
