My story, "Not the Same Holiday Inn," has been accepted for publication in The Foliate Oak.
This story is a piece of flash fiction drawn from my unpublished novel, Some Day. It is the only scene from the pov of Tater Bud - a partially-deaf young man who is the youngest of the seven Nettle brothers and the only one of the seven with a job (at the hammer handle factory in Walnut Ridge).
In the story, he recalls his first and only love. He only loved once, but he loved completely.
