The August issue of Mermaids Monthly became available over the weekend, and happy news for me: I have two (very, very tiny) stories in there! Mermaids Monthly has this super neat collaborative feature called Each to Each where writers can submit 250-word-or-less stories and (if accepted) get paired with an artist who subbed their own mermaid sketches. The artist draws something for the writer’s fic, and the writer writes something for the artist’s work, and boom, two tiny stories and neat pieces of artwork.
I got paired with Clare McCanna, whose mermaid drawings are awesome. If you’re interested, you can check them out (as well as my writing) here:
(Your unofficial Radiohead pairing for both stories is “Bloom.” I thought it’d be cool to try and find one song for both pieces, especially considering they’re both so short. This ended up being a much greater challenge than I anticipated, but I ended up happy with the results! As always, you can listen to all my super serious Radiohead pairings HERE.)

These were short but lovely. Congrats on getting two stories into this mermaid magazine!
Thanks! They are SO short, which is funny because flash is not what I consider my wheelhouse but is also, oddly, what I’ve had the most success with this year. I was really happy when I got in. 🙂
