 … NAMING CEREMONY …

.

 

Fiction writing was my first love, so it’s a real joy for me that this new book – my third thanks to a lot of help, work, and support – is short stories (with a few essays thrown in for confusion as to what really happened). Through some serendipitous connections via previously publications, the smart, caring Lethe Press brought my stories into book form. Much gratitude for publisher Steve Berman, book designer Toby Johnson, and cover designer Niki Smith (I love the cover!) for making this happen. And gratitude to some of my favorite writers who lent their supportive words in blurbs: Carolina De Robertis, Cyrus Cassells, and Manuel Muñoz. And thanks to the editors of the journals who first brought these stories into print (or web), including Ploughshares, Crazyhorse, A&U, Jonathan, Platte Valley Review, Blue Stem, Boulder Planet, Blithe House Review, Apalachee Review, South Pacific Review, POUI, Drunken Boat, and The James White Review. And thanks to my love, Gabriel Padilha, for the author photo. And clearly to the readers, for whom it’s all created. Enjoy NAMING CEREMONY.  Chip Livingston (photo © 2012 Gabriel Padilha).
