Poutine and The Taste of Summer
Brief Encounters, a site for M/M short story reviews, has been profiling Canadian authors over the last week, and today, July 3rd, is my turn. You can find a review of my short story Like the Taste of Summer. If you are interested on my take on many things Canadian, there is also an interview. I hope you enjoy a look at my Canadian side, still waving a bit of a maple-leaf flag despite 26 years in my well-loved Minnesota adopted home. (Although if that damned marriage-restriction amendment passes, putting a ban on gay marriage in our MN state constitution, then moving back to Canada is going to look tempting. If you’re a fellow Minnesotan, get out in November and vote “No”.) And if you come by Brief Encounters, don’t forget to stop in at the giveaway post and register for a chance to win books from the listed authors, including a chance at one book from my backlist.
I’ve been busy writing, since I got caught up by a call for an Olympics story – it needs a little polishing before I submit it to MLR, but maybe you’ll see an unanticipated short story coming out soon. No dates yet on the stuff I have in press. When I know, you’ll know.
I hope everyone north of the longest undefended border had a happy Canada Day and that everyone south of it will enjoy their holiday on the Fourth. Have fun watching things go boom and sparkle, and keep everyone’s fingers safe. May the heat abate, the power stay on, and may you all have an enjoyable holiday week.
