Last week, before I travelled to New York (more on that in the next post!), I was carrying on an interview with the talented and illustrious Gessy Alvarez. There are many writers with whom we maintain "cyber" relationships. I had the great fortune of meeting Gessy, among many other friends, at the AWP Writer's Conference in Boston, MA in March, 2013. If you are interested in checking out her fabulous writing, Gessy and I also connected and support one another's work through Fictionaut, an online writer's community: Gessy Alvarez — Fictionaut.
Last week, Gessy published our Communcation #8, in a series she hosts at Digging Through the Fat, her blog in which she gives so much of her valuable time back to the writer’s in our community. I am deeply grateful to her for this, for our friendship, her amazing prose, and so much more. Here is our chat:

Thanks a ton, Gessy! You’re simply the best.
Today, Jeremy Hauck's astute review of MICROTONES is up at Heavy Feather Review!
Once again, I am blown away by the depth of what this writer reveals in his review, "Think of your Kid," one of the lines from my poem, "Buried," in the collection.
You can read the review here:

Thanks, editors Jason Teal and Nathan Floom.
And writer Jeremy Houck!]]>
The fantastic new issue of Uno Kudo 3 has finally arrived! My piece, "Six Glimpses of the Uncouth" is included with the original images by Andre Schmucki that prompted each of the six shards.
Also there are some other amazing pieces by lots of talented writers, including Heather Dorn, Kenneth Pobo, Meg Tuite, Timothy Gager, Jen Knox, Frankie Metro, Susan Lewis, Kyle Hemmings and many more. The art in this issue is SICK!
Check it all out here:

<![CDATA[Hi friends! When writer Tom Hazuka asked me for a potential submission to be in the proposed anthology, Flash Fiction Funny, I was thrilled. I decided on a send-up of the Three Stooges that I originally wrote in 2011, and with Tom's expert editing advice and input, we came up with a very fresh, original, and yes, funnier version of "Three Stooges Explain Relativity." I am super stoked, to be included in this seminal anthology, Flash Fiction Funny, edited by the original Renaissance Man himself, Tom Hazuka!
Here is what Robert Shopard, co-editor of Flash Fiction Forward had to say about it: ‘Tom Hazuka’s Flash Fiction Funny is a delight. Comical, silly, absurd, slapstick, quirky and always fun, it tickles.’ (and plenty more at the Amazon site!) And here is the Amazon link for the laughs: Flash Fiction Funny: Tom Hazuka: 9781595408822: Amazon.com: Books Thanks Tom, for thinking of me!
