I have put together a collection of many of my short stories, and started the process of submitting the manuscript for publication. I have found Black Lawrence Press and after reviewing their work, found it to be a great place to submit my work. They are also involved with Chapbooks, which is a new form for me. I have put a portion of my favorite story to date into chapter form and submitted it to their chapbook contest. I am really interested in pursuing this type of writing, which requires concise wording and strong structure. It was fun to enter into this new form. I plan to keep working on shorter works, while also trying to finish another novel. I think there is a new outlet opening for shorter works, up to the novella level. Some prominent authors are starting to work in these areas. More to come.
