This was a fun story to write. I tried to imagine how someone would communicate in the modern world during a zombie crisis at the end of civilization. I took inspiration from this article about <a href="http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1905125,00.html">twitter and the Iranian Protests.</a>
I constructed the story in the form of tweets.  This gave the story a really personal slant and I love stories that play with the form that we imagine that fiction must have.
This story is presented in reverse chronological order just as tweets would appear on Twitter, but I think it works even better this way.
The print version of the anthology comes out next week sometimes.
The Kindle version of the anthology is available now.  You can check it out here: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Quick-Bite-Flesh-Anthology-ebook/dp/B009EIK4UK/">http://www.amazon.com/Quick-Bite-Flesh-Anthology-ebook/dp/B009EIK4UK/</a>

My story “Asenath” has been accepted for publication in the anthology Cthulhu: A Love Story to be published by Loyal Stone Press.

This story retells certain aspects of Lovecraft’s “The Thing on the Doorstep” from the point of view of Asenath Waite. Such a wasted character!
