“One Headlight” Accepted for Publication

Four silhouettes against a sunset beach background

Hi all,

A few years ago, I wrote a short story, titled “One Headlight”, about a group of teenage friends forced to cope with the loss of one of their own.

It went through a series of edits and submissions, and I had a tough time with it. I felt it was the best short story I’d ever written, and the fact that I couldn’t find a place to publish it jabbed at my self-esteem.

But the little story that could kept going out to new publishers, kept changing, and eventually, with a little rework of the ending, it has found its place.

“One Headlight” has been accepted for publication in Best New Writing 2017, and it is a finalist for the Gover Story Prize. I will have further details on publication dates, as well as whether or not the the story takes home the big prize, but finalist is more than enough to put a big smile on my face.

More info to come! Thank you, as always, for following along with my career and for all of the love and support you send me!

Yours,

Justine
