Grey Sparrow and Noctua–“Not for the Birds”

Grey Sparrow, Winter 2013 Grey Sparrow and Noctua Review are both digital and print (hybrid) publications featuring new artists and writers (both short story and flash fiction). Because of the expense of producing print media or “hard copy”, the proliferation of digital journals allows new writers and artists more venues than ever before.  Journals such as Grey Sparrow and Noctua Review offer both, with the “hard copy” delayed but also available for those who are not quite used to reading almost everything online or in e-book format,  or who just need something for the...

“Shadow Dad”– Flash Fiction in “The Story Shack”

“Shadow Dad” was just published in the online literary journal, The Story Shack.  The inspiration for the work came to me during a creative writers’ group exercise involving writing within a 15-minute time period.  It was fun and revealed how sometimes “over thinking” can detract from the power  of the original thought. Go to The Story Shack online to read “Shadow Dad”. Let me know your comments!

“For Independent Minds”–Grey Sparrow Press

The Internet has created vast new horizons for first-time artists and writers–for new voices.  And indie publishers and self-publishing companies help create and reach new audiences for these voices.  But it still is a daily battle to prove that the new distribution channels for creativity are just as good (or better?) than the traditional black-and-white print media. Small presses have become  a new and legitimate publishing force. Today these small publishers comprise approximately half of market share in the industry. One such innovative and dynamic literary journal and press is Grey...

“Go for Broke”

Hi, Let me introduce myself to the followers of “Unhealed Wound.” I am Susie Berteaux, friend of Diana and Doug, who has a blog of my own – “S&J’s Big Adventure(s).” I guess, since I have my own blog, Diana thought that qualified me to be the  substitute blogger while she and Doug are traveling the vast, beautiful and  fascinating country of China.  When she gets back, we will all be waiting for her discoveries of art, culture and …food. I hope you all will find my postings as interesting and educational as Diana’s.   For this posting, I will “GO FOR BROKE!” as I attended the 11th Annual...

“The Net”–Captured in Each Other’s Minds

I always let my blog followers know about my recent art and fiction publications.  Just two days ago my short story, “The Net”, was published in an online literary journal (www.orionheadless.com). The Buddhist metaphor of the net underpins not only this short story but also my writing, art and philosophy of life. Read the short story in tandem with this post for a fuller back-story to the Buddhist values implied in “The Net”. The Buddhist concept of perception was front and center in an art class on Color Fundamentals. I learned that human vision is limited in terms of...

“Letting Go”–A short story published in “Blood and Thunder”

In the fall issue 2011 of Blood and Thunder, a literary journal published by the University of Oklahoma Medical School, my short story “Letting Go” appears, exploring the theme of the ill and dying.  Blood and Thunder does not publish issues online and I could not scan the published version for my blog. Consequently, click on the cover image above and you will be taken to the fourteen-page document published in its entirety in the current issue.  A version of this short story is being included in the final draft of my novel, Unhealed Wound.  I would be very, very interested in receiving...
