Medusa's Lament to be published in September Issue of Niteblade
I am so excited to report that my short story, Medusa's Lament will be published in Nightblade for their September edition online! I need to thank my two critique partners, Christine Rains and Cherie Reich for their suggestions and continued support! I couldn't have done it without you!
Here is the link.
Medusa's Lament is a fantasy short story about the sense of isolation and inner turmoil facing a cursed woman. When a warrior comes to slay her for a prize, she embraces his triumph and welcomes an end to her suffering. But the warrior is consumed with curiosity and, at the last moment of the fight, takes off his blindfold to look in her eyes. The irony is that he becomes her greatest prize.
