Damn, just when I was sitting down to do some honest writing on this novel that I’m way far behind on (on my admittedly self-appointed deadline), I get the news that my story “We’ll Learn Together” is now live in the new issue of The Dying Goose, meaning I’ve got to announce the publication to the world. #egoproblems. Be sure to read the rest of the stories, too, especially “Commute” by my fellow The Velvet Born Chris Deal.
I suppose it’s fitting though that if time is being robbed by this publication announcement post that it would be for “We’ll Learn Together” as the story will likely make its way into the very novel that I’m not currently writing. So, I guess you faithful readers out there can consider this story the first glimpse at what will become my first novel in 3 years (minimum; it’s impossible to say how long the novel will take to write, let alone actually get published).
The story focuses on a single encounter between Michael, a reporter; Iola, a source for a book Michael is writing; and a professor from Michael’s University days. But this is no casual encounter. Michael, having just learned that his book project may be responsible for sending a man to his death, turns to his professor for some ethical guidance. The professor, unfortunately for Michael, isn’t very helpful. Also, Iola just minutes prior, stabbed a guy and left him to die on her front porch.
I’m excited by the novel. I swear, I think this will be my masterpiece.
