To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.


1 in a Million, Again

Early this morning David Cranmer cued me to the fact that my Thuglit story "Indirection, In Wait" was nominated for Story South's Million Writers Award. This is for 2010 and I thought maybe it was a typo or something as I received the nod for 2009 as well. Nope. freakin' flattered and amused. Pretty righteous crime fiction company also getting the nod this year...Tafoya, McBride, Davidson, etc. Coolness.
