Fruit Cake Blues up at (b)oink

My flash fiction “Fruit Cake Blues” is up at (b)oink this month. A zine of flash fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction and art, I’m pleased to share the stage with so many other amazing stories. Thanks to the editors, Robert Vaughan, Chelsea Laine Wells, and Rob Parrish for digging on this piece. It’s my first published story since last July, so I’m pleased to get back into the short fiction game.

If you have a few minutes to spare, go and give it a read. It’s about cake, so I know you can get behind that.

Read “Fruit Cake Blues” here.

The funny thing about the inspiration for this piece is that a few years ago my cousin sent me a pinterest link to the below photo. We were both horrified and via gchat the two of us started to riff on a scenario where some guy goes ape-shit bananas for being served this goddamn sham of a cake. I mean, c’mon. Like you could keep your cool at the dinner table if some jabroni straight up served this mockery of a cake.

COME ON.

Again. You can read it here.

The real cakes of the world will thank you.
