"Heart Surgery" up at Mused

My short story, "Heart Surgery" is up at BellaOnline's literary magazine, Mused.

I have to admit, it's pretty cool seeing my name up there. My only regret is that the submissions process stripped the italics out of my work and apparently they didn't make it back in, so I think that makes the time shifts in the story a little more confusing than they need to be. But still, it's pretty awesome to see my story in print and the photo that accompanies the story is just right on.

Check it out if you have some time. I'd love to know what you think.

I pulled it up before I read blogs this morning. I've already got an email in to correct the italics.

I know that story!
And it's just as beautiful this read as it was the last--maybe more so.
Which is a testimony to the story-crafter.

Thanks, H. It's really interesting coming back to a story after a year. I cut a bunch from the beginning and the end, but I think the fact that you didn't seem to miss those parts testifies to the fact that they weren't needed. :)
