Published Story Spotlight: 'Running Out of Wax'

The Rose Red Review is a great new publication. Read their mission statement here.

They were kind enough to accept my strange, epistolary tale 'Running Out of Wax' for their Winter 2012 issue, published January 1st, 2013.

I had been sending this story around for almost a year in various forms, with the last revision adding to its length and adding in the dates to the mad narrator's diary. It is perhaps the most experimental of all my short stories - and it certainly doesn't make oodles of tightly plotted sense. Rather, it seems to produce a bizarre emotional effect - if anything.

I hope you enjoy reading 'Running Out of Wax' as much as I enjoyed writing it.
