Here you go, a new story from the Improbable Author:
It’ll be up for the next 10 days or so, and I am actively looking for your comments, critiques, questions, kudos, etc. You can either e-mail me or post a comment here or on the story (I’m easy, whatever works for you).
After that, I’ll pull it down, polish it, and it’ll make the magazine acceptance/rejection rounds. Slushpiles ho!
And, again, this story is dedicated to the memory of Jackie Price Dunn. I’m not sure if I ever shared my stories with her before her tragic accident. She was a beautiful soul. I’m sure my work would have been all the better for her input.
Jackie, hope you enjoy it up there on your cloud, between eternal bike rides.
UPDATE: ILYAMY has expired and is now down. Thank you all for the many comments and suggestions. I’m now tweaking it and will be sending it to the various magazines, where I hope it finds a happy, pro-published home. If you get a hankering to read it before you can see it in a pay setting, just drop me a line. I’m always looking for feedback!
