Blue Cubicle Press and me, whee!



Blue Cubicle Press and me, whee!

Blue Cubicle Press http://www.bluecubiclepress.com/index.htm is best known for its unique literary journal, The First Line, which the BCP describes as the longest running, fully independent journal of 100 pages or less published in North Texas every three months, The First Line has become the literary equivalent of low-budget film that is absent on award night but has a great cult following

Check out the September issue of The Writer for a profile of TFL in their Literary Spotlight.

Among the Blue Cubicle’s other imprints is Workers Write!, an annual literary journal -- theme-oriented collections of the best stories from the workplace. The first issue, Workers Write! Tales from the Cubicle is still on sale.

Their second issue, Workers Write! Tales from the Classroom, is also available as is the most recent issue, Workers Write! Tales from the Cash Register. They can all be purchased at: http://www.bluecubiclepress.com/books.htm

Now for the really big news:

Next April, Blue Cubicle will release, Workers Write! Tales from the Clinic, which will include, The Kiss, a story by, ta-dah, me!

For more information about Blue Cubicle and their imprints, visit their Web site at: http://www.bluecubiclepress.com/index.htm

The news was doubly good for this "yet to be published" inchoate novelist, since the story in question. The Kiss, is the short story version of chapter one from my first novel, A Brief Affair. Now all I need is for some far-sighted editor, publisher, or agent to pick up a copy of, Workers Write! Tales from the Clinic, and be impressed with my contribution.

That’s not much to ask/hope/beg/pray for, is it?
