Nearly three years ago I wrote a flash fiction story about a dog with “issues” and sent it around to a few journals. It was rejected many times. Then in June this year I attended a small press trade show in an Ottawa community centre and found Common Deer Press. Their submission guidelines for the Short Tail section of their website said this,
We tend to prefer work that might be literary if it weren’t so genre….
and I thought “Hmm. Maybe Nelson would like to live here.”
Without further ado, here it is – The Dog Shakes
edited by Emily Stewart. Thank you, Common Deer Press for giving Nelson a home.
