My historical, speculative-fiction novelette, “The Beauty of Wynona,” has found a home with Lacuna. When I wrote this sometime ago, I never realized how hard it would be to place such a long work (11,000+ words), so I’m happy that it’s finally found a home, and I couldn’t be happier with where. Lacuna is a small-press publication that specializes in historical fiction, so this story set at a Victorian summer home in the 1870s is a great fit. I have to thank the editor, Megan Arkenberg (whose an accomplished writer herself), for being willing to make room for such a long story—I know her preferences run toward shorter works. “The Beauty of Wynona” is scheduled for issue #7, due in October 2012.
