Pushcart Prize

I'm honored and tremendously humbled that my short story, NO TEARS FOR CRYING has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.  It's flattering to not only be nominated for the literary prize that honors the best "poetry, short fiction, essays or literary whatnot" (especially the whatnot part in which I clearly fall), but one that has recognized the work of some of my heroes like Junot Diaz, Raymond Carver, Tim O'Brien, and William Monahon.

You can read the story here

Thanks very much.

Well crack open a whole case of Dom Perignon and let's uncork to 'whatnots' ... or author Kevin Michaels, pushin' the lofty PUSHCART.

Takes talent to have your words peddled out on the street likes that. Takes intelligence to nominate you for deserving distinction.

I salute you, my colleague, my friend. *clink*
