Sunset Unseen: two stories in the Offing

2016-07-22_002651

I have two new micro-stories in the Offing! Go read them! And I hope your summer is good, and that you are safe, wherever you are, surrounded by friends and loved ones. It’s been pretty weird around here on planet Earth lately… xxx

Will Be Back After These Captcha Messages

Working on an awesome Book Ex Machina book project. It’s our biggest one  yet! (If you want to find out about it first, subscribe to our Very Occasional Newsletter.)

It’s summer. I mean, SUMMER. Just had survived our first heatwave.

Had a story accepted in one of my favorite literary magazines.

Trying not to read the news.

Trying to remember to breathe.

Here’s some Captcha poetry, see you again  soon.

The Summer: part 2 out of ∞

First beach day of the year! (pretty late) First beach polaroids of the year!

Went at noon like rookies and swam out for too long and got a tiny case of heatstroke.

(Sun too much for the polaroids, too.)

But, summer, yay! I wish I could live there in that blue overexposed moment staring at the water while falling asleep.

Cyprus summer

In Cyprus summer lasts from May to October. July and August should really be called SUMMER, or High Summer (akin to high noon.)

You can hide indoors with the air-conditioning on, or you can embrace the awesome heat, dive into pools and the sea, and then sometimes after sunset drive out to find a nice place to sit outside, far away from all the city lights and look up at the sky.

summer is over. long live the summer.

Summer in Cyprus lasts from May to October.

July and August in the city are kind of insufferable. That’s when you stay in with the air-conditioner on all day and only emerge at night.

Or, if you can, take to the beach or mountains.
