Good News: Crab Orchard Review

I’m pleased to report that I have a new piece in the Summer/Fall 2010 edition of Crab Orchard Review. “The Chicago Brother” is a section from my novel-in-progress, but don’t be afraid: it truly does stand on its own. I’m especially pleased to be included in this special “Land of Lincoln: Writing about and from Illinois” issue…and to see a lovely poem about Mary Todd Lincoln by my buddy, Anna Leahy!

The contents are not online at this time (sorry), but for more information, the website is here. And if you’re looking to submit to a very classy, top-notch journal, you should read the FAQ (here) and then send in your work. This journal is truly edited by people who care! Highly recommended.
