"Things I Realized on Finding an Alien in the Passenger Seat of My Car" appears in Flash Fiction Online

My short story Things I Realized on Finding an Alien in the Passenger Seat of My Car has been published in the April 2018 issue of Flash Fiction Online. I've been waiting for this for about six months. This is my second sale at a professional rate, and my first SFWA-qualifying sale.

I've been having a great time with this one. It's pretty great to have a story in an online magazine where you can share it with everyone and they don't have the barrier of having to locate and purchase a copy before they can read it. Tons of people at my office have told me they read and enjoyed it, and then they cite details proving they really did read it.

Some reviews of my story "Daughter of Mettle"

I did some vanity googling and found these brief mentions of the story. The story itself (which came out way back in 2013) can be read at http://dailysciencefiction.com/science-fiction/superhero/aaron-damommio/daughter-of-mettle

It's rewarding to find people posting about it. In several cases below, you'll want to search for the word 'mettle' as the story gets only a paragraph in an article.

My story "Road Trip" to appear in anthology

My story "Road Trip" will appear in the Fell Beasts and Fair anthology from Spring Song Press.  The anthology collects stories about magical creatures. This'll be my longest published piece so far, at about 3500 words, and my first one to feature a werewolf, and a sandwich. 

It's available for preorder now, shipping March 20, 2018. The link above takes you the Amazon page; it's available as a Kindle ebook and a paperback, though the paperback may trail the ebook in availability. 

As a result, I now have an Amazon author page, and you can search Amazon for 'damommio' and find the book, which somehow thrills me a lot.
