A short story to be published in Veronica Literary Magazine

Happy New Year to All!

2017 was a very busy year for me, with plenty of research and writing done. Two book contracts signed would be more than enough to satisfy my ego but I was also pleased to see my dystopian short story Means of Production accepted for publication by Veronica Literary Magazine. This was an unexpected Christmas gift!

Here is what the nice people from Veronica said:

From the first line- “The man’s agile body glistened with perspiration”, one might assume they were about to read a piece of romantic fiction. But your story twists that on its head and leaves the reader stunned. This piece was a rollercoaster. You have crafted a story that drip feeds the reader answers to the questions you raise, while ultimately having crafted a world that raises many more questions than you could answer in a short piece. This is short fiction done right.’

I am very much looking forward to seeing the story published. Fingers crossed that 2018 will be as thrilling as 2017!
