Nelson and Caleb
I had my projects for this summer planned out, when MLR Press came to me and said, “We want to do a story series with some of our top authors. Will you contribute a novella?” Three guesses on whether I’ve learned to say no to story requests yet… and the first two guesses don’t count.

The series is set to release one novella a week beginning September 5th. I’ll keep you posted on the order and dates, and give you my blurb and cover soon. But I couldn’t resist sharing my guys. It’s rare that I have a face in mind before I start writing something new, but this time it was Nelson’s eyes that pulled me into his story.
