BIG BIG NEWS-Pushcart Nom!


I still can't believe that someone out there in the ether read my story, Spring Melt and somehow put it together with these words, PUSHCART NOMINATION. I owe Every Day Fiction (and that means Jordan Lapp, Camille Gooderham Campbell, and that tech-whiz Steven Smethurst, the salty one) a huge hug of gratitude for submitting my story. And all my buds at EDF who've been so encouraging to me. I won't list them for fear of leaving someone out in my own excitement, but you know who you are.

Oh, and CONGRATS TO MY FELLOW EDF NOMINEES. I'm honored to be among your number. Find links to their work at EDF:

Congratulations, Gay! Do you know, is it a trophy or money? And whichever it is, are you making room for it?

This is a major coup, Gay, and a terrific step forward for your career. Spring Melt is an amazing story and I'm so pleased that EDF chose it to put forward for Pushcart. Everything crossed for you to win.
