Adelaide Literary Magazine Publication!

My short story, “The Story of Henry: Chapter and Verse,” has been published in the July issue of Adelaide Literary Magazine.

I wrote the story a number of years ago, and after countless rejections, it finally found the right editor. (I sent it to Adelaide Literary Magazine from a call for submissions that seemed a good match for it. Subscribing to e-mailed calls for submissions has definitely paid off!)

“The Story of Henry” was inspired by an event that affected my father very deeply and, in turn, me. The typewriter above is the one that appears in the story. (I made mention of it in a prior post about the need some people have, myself included, to hold tight to our “Things.”)
