When beetles crawled out of my mouth, I closed my eyes and let them scuttle away. She stayed near the water. She ran her toe through the sand and watched the water smooth the rut…
Over-the-moon ecstatic to have this new story (“Ghost Mountain Island Murder Mystery”) in The American Reader. Many, many, excessive, embarrassing thanks to the talented and brilliant crew at The Reader.
You can purchase the issue here, or, as of this morning, read the full story online here.
Friends, lovers, haters, wife, give this one a glance. It’s one of my favorites, and one of the most enjoyable and painful things I’ve ever written.
Also, it may be a good time to announce that this story, along with one other and a short novella will be released later this Spring from Publishing Genius, in an eBook titled NO NO NO.
Keep an eye out for it?

Many thanks to Melanie Page over at JMWW for reading and writing a bit about Fondly.
"[Winnette] creates hints of plot and deviates or starts all over again, but then the reader is so wrapped up in narrative it’s hard to notice.”

I’m reading here, a couple of times on Friday. Then there’s something on Saturday. Lots of people selling books. I’ll be with Spork and PANK. There’s too much shit to list here—it’s going to be a really jam-packed, awesome and insane few days—but if you can make it to Iowa, or if for some reason you live in Iowa, let’s hang out. Brian Evenson’ll be there, and Phillip Glass, so…
Here’s the lineup. I’m on this page. Just way down there by a band called Samuel Locke Ward and the Garbage Boys XXL.
