Hot Reads

Hot Reads is a feature I published on my now defunct group blog, NOLAFemmes. I’ve decided to continue it here, from time to time, focusing mainly on the great fiction, flash fiction and poetry I read around the web. I love to share good writing!

First, here’s a little something-something  I recently wrote:


Intimate flaws abandoned
in darkness
feed the hungry impulse
for feeling less
than loved.
A strange bed sets a fluid
stage, transposing
in reflected light, sifting
like sand
through numbed fingers.


“Unwitnessed” is currently up at Fictionaut where it’s joined by a gaggle of good poems and fiction that you really need to read. Such as

Three Micros by Kathy Fish

The Ash Orchard by Lorna Garano

Profession of Faith by James Claffey

Wince by Barry Basden

Bacon’s Blood (1) by Mathew Paust  – The beginning of a new Blow Stone novel (crime/suspense genre). HIs last was great. You can follow this new one on Fictionaut or his website.

Also, Blue Five Notebook has some outstanding work in their January issue. Check it out!

Fnally, I ran across this little piece with some good tips on Zen Habits, The Delightfully Short Guide To Reading More Books.

Have a great reading week!
