So a long time ago in a galaxy far away I was nominated by Midwestern Gothic contributor and all-around good guy, Lee Krecklow, for the Writing Process Blog…
Midwestern Gothic’s latest venture, This Jealous Earth by Scott Dominic Carpenter, is here and ready for you to read. Even though you could make a strong argument that I’m biased, I loved this collection of short stories. (if I didn’t, why would I be publishing it?)
When Rob and I first talked about starting MG Press, the imprint putting out this book, we wanted to find a piece of work that reflected all the values of Midwestern Gothic, one that really showcased not just the region, but the talent residing here. Scott’s book fit the bill perfectly. It blew away the bill. We couldn’t have hoped for a better submission.
It’s been a lot of hard work to get to here – but it’s been worth it. And there’s a lot more ahead, as we try to bring this collection of 16 short fictions to readers. But we’re extremely thrilled to share this with the world and hear what people think.
