I rarely post on the weekends, but I have a new story out today!
“Give Us the Swords” is . . . well. It’s what happens when a little weirdo brain like mine decides to adapt William Shakespeare. In particular, this is a modern adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, which is my very favorite Shakespeare play; it is also a horror comedy about love, friendship, vengeance, fencing, and masked serial killers. Clearly, a very natural progression of the original story.
Honestly, I really like this little oddball thing. “Give Us the Swords” was an awful lot of fun to write, but—for presumably obvious reasons—I never actually thought I’d be able to sell it. Thus you can imagine my delight when I did manage to find it an awesome home at Kaleidotrope. If you do check it out, I hope you enjoy!

Carlie, I’m very proud of you. Congrats on publishing another great story. C J
This was a lot of fun. Congratulations on getting it published!
I could very much feel your irritation at certain parts of Much Ado About Nothing through the page, heh.
Aww, thank you!
And I don’t know what you mean. I definitely didn’t write a whole story because of an intense desire to punch Claudio repeatedly in the face. 😂
