Story Sale!

From the Speakers: SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN by Harry Connick Jr.

Ever wonder how people who get away with terrible crimes can live without guilt? Well, not all of them can.

That's an attempt at a teaser for my latest story sale--what do you think? Enticing? Would you read on?

"Ten Stories Up, Ten Years Later" originated as a submission for a flash fiction contest my senior year at UNC. It didn't place, so I started sending it around to magazines, and after some helpful feedback and revisions, it landed a home at Misfit Magazine! Here's the link: It's due to come out in the April 2012 issue.

(Head over there now and see a story by Milo James Fowler, who I appeared beside in Ray Gun Revival this summer, when "Good Business, with Guns" was published. Click the link to the left to read that one!)

What a great early Christmas present! And don't worry--I'll be sure to post several reminders in April, when it comes out. The best part is I still have a handful (or two) of stories floating around out there. If one gets accepted before Christmas, I just might have to bake twice as many cookies for Santa.

Woohoo! Nothing like a sale to get the writing juices flowing. Ready... set... WRITE!


  1. Congrats Devin!!! It's a great story :)

  2. Way to go, Devin! I look forward to reading it.

  3. Thanks guys! Can't wait to send y'all the link! PS--sorry for the delay. See today's post to learn the reason . . . :/
