Today, instead of a Sampling, I will be posting my novella "Genuine" for your delicate perusal. On this piece, it is more important than ever that you talk to me and tell me what you think.
Because "Genuine" brought back Rejection Letter #2, and I may be a little sulky on that still.
Still, this story needs a chance to see the light of day. So here goes nothing.
This note was buried in some of the information I collected when I wrote this piece. I thought it interesting:
“Genuine” is a labor of love on my part. Even if they don’t end up selecting it, I needed to write after some bad news I received… and I needed to keep my mind off things that were developing as I was writing. So this piece is my personal screw-you to the carpel tunnel syndrome in my wrists and to life itself, as it endeavors to steal my escapisms from me.
