“Deadfall” is now up at Hedge Apple

My One-Match Fire story “Deadfall” is now up at Hedge Apple. Actually, it appears to have been up for a month and I didn’t know it; I never received an email about it.

This is the penultimate story of the novel. It is one of two “crisis” chapters near the end and it reveals a great deal of information about one of the characters. I had submitted to the Personal Identity theme they had called for. This was also one of two stories that I had originally intended to part of the inevitable sequel but then found room for in OMF.

So if you have an interest or inclination, click on the link and read the story. You can leave a comment there (effusive ones are nice) if you wish.

Also, they include a photo to accompany the story — I don’t know if you can see it in your browser — and it’s a bit excessive as an example of what is in my story. Still, nice little touch they added.

Anyone know how to modify text in the headline of WordPress posts? I used to be able to make words italic, for example, and even change their color using my rudimentary HTML skills, but that doesn’t seem to be allowed any longer. I suppose I could look it up online somewhere, but it’s so much more pleasant to talk with you.

    Really enjoyed your short story – particularly loved the way it was multi-layered in the way the son’s telling/father’s acceptance occurred – first the verbal acceptance, then followed up with the crucial action. Lovely.
    As for your wordpress issues, when you start typing in the add blog section, the italics/bold and text justify buttons appear in a bar immediately above where you type. Colour and size can be adjusted by clicking on Block on the right hand side, and then opening relevant box.
