I received word today that my short story collection The Geography of Love was named a semi-finalist in the Iowa Short Fiction Prize. While it didn't win, it was named a semi-finalist (one of the top twenty) out of three hundred plus manuscripts. Close, but no cigar. The letter was sweet and incredibly encouraging though. Hopefully something will come of it. Keep your fingers crossed.
