As I mentioned yesterday, I am taking off my “short story” hat and donning my “novelist” hat, but before I could officially do that, I had to finish editing my last short, “State of the Union,” which I have now done.

I sent this piece to an anthology called City Shadows, being published by Cohort Press

Unfortunately, part of the guidelines requested changing the title to the name of the city it takes place in; so “State of the Union” has become “Manhattan.”

It hurt a bit, having to change the title, because that title suggested something about the theme of my story, but I obliged because, well, I had to.

This anthology will remain open until filled; if anyone else has a dark story based around a city they’d like to submit, do it soon. Also, on the top of the page (link above) there is another anthology they currently are accepting submissions for.

Go to it you horror writing fiends.
