Seven years on, 'Lines in the Snow' finds a home

I've just heard from Jill Brennan that my melancholic love story "Lines in the Snow" will appear on Espresso Fiction on August 14.

This is very gratifying because "Lines" was one of those stories you love but just can't find a market for.

I wrote the first draft way back in 1999 (pretty sure it was '99) as a title game entry on the now defunct British writing group Getoutthere.

I've tinkered with it ever since, sending it out, getting rejected, and so on.

When Cafe Doom started its crit group recently I thought it might be worth a shot. Based on feedback I received, I did quite a significant re-write, and it seems to have done the trick.

So kudos to the Cafe Doom critters!
