Acceptance of "The Tiger Earring"

My short story "The Tiger Earring" has been accepted for publication by Sliver of Stone Magazine. I'm really excited about this because of my fondness for the story. It's a love story told in reverse. It starts in the year 2067 and ends in the year 1985.

The tone of "The Tiger Earring" is wistful and reflective. I very much enjoyed writing it in reverse and having the story unfold in this way. I will post when it's available!
