I am pleased to announce that my short story “The Devil and the White Room” has been accepted for publication by Down in the Dirt for its July/Aug 2016 issue. This is a flash fiction piece I wrote for a horror-themed submissions call. Glad to see it made its way to a home. Will post more details when it goes up on the site!
Last post of the day, seriously. When do I make all of these posts, lol.
This one was published by 50-Word Stories back in September. Enjoy!
And, Happy Holidays, everyone!
