Wednesday Words: Cactus Heart Press vol. 11

Happy Earth Day, Admin. Professionals Day, and WEDNESDAY!

As an administrative assistant, I am now stuffed with breakfast and presents (I didn't eat the presents), but that won't stop me from sharing with you all what I am reading this week!

This week, I'm finally reading the Speculative Issue of Cactus Heart Press, the edition in which you can find my short story "Origin"! I can't stress enough how much I love the tone of this press, and I'm so glad I was given the opportunity to become a part of it.

But enough about me! Using, I will choose one of the 155 pages in this edition. Random has 148.

LOL. That's the cover page for the Bios. Let's try 86.

That's better. The short story is "The Lies Trees Tell," and Kate mentioned this one in the introduction, so I'd been waiting to read it. A young woman ran into a tree, and the tree seemed to swallow her!

There are about 19 lines on this page, and Random has chosen.......................1. So here's the whole paragraph. lol

Alex had started to cry. She hadn't meant to, but the conversation had turned from one of Aunt Bev's charmingly silly Old World folktales to scary. And her dad was dead, and she didn't want to deal with this.

This was right after her grandmother told her that trees lie, and her father didn't escape them. It's a very interesting and eerie story.


  1. I love that title - "The Lies Trees Tell". I'm intruiged.

  2. That sounds like a really cool story! Congrats on the publish!

  3. Congratulations!
    This Alex doesn't cry. Well, maybe almost never.

  4. How cool that a story of yours is in this magazine! That other story, "The Lies Trees Tell," sounds fascinating, too...

  5. Happy (day late) Administrative Asst. day. I had a great boss who called me his asst on the day instead of property manager so we could all stuff our faces. Worked out well for all of us. :)
