Publishing News For The New Year

2016 looks like it will be a busy year in Timmy Reed-land. I have a number of projects forthcoming and I am excited to tell you about them. I have three novels coming out from three different presses, for starters.

My mother/daughter novel of sainthood and cross-country travel in a tear-drop trailer, Miraculous Fauna, is coming out this Spring from Los Angeles press Underground Voices (http://www.undergroundvoices.com).

This Summer I have another novel, a satire of reality television and celebrity culture in the early years of the 2000’s, Star Backwards, entering the world courtesy of the British outfit Dostoyevsky Wannabe Press (http://www.dostoyevskywannabe.co.uk)

And, finally, in the Fall, I have a novella about social media, vacationing from the Internet, and mound-building in an east Baltimore vacant lot. The novella is called I.R.L. and will be featured as part of San Francisco press Outfit 19’s (http://www.outpost19.com/index.html) Short-ish series of novellas and extended essays.

Also my short story Birds and Other Things We Placed In Our Hearts, which was featured included in last year’s Wigleaf Top 50 among other places, is being adapted into a short film by a film crew from Columbia in Chicago.

Below are a few links where you can learn about the film, see some early footage, and help support it as well.
