Changes for the New Year

Alex Rio Brazil

Happy 2013 everyone! I was talking to a dear friend on the phone the other day, and he commented that I'd never even mentioned here at Bareback Alchemy that my story "Terminal" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by The Hoot & Hare Review. It made me wonder what other author news I may have neglected. So in 2013, I resolve to be more frequent with my updates. Another change for the upcoming year is that The Mnemosyne Weekly will become the Mnemosyne Monthly to allow for more variety in the blog posts. You can look for the Mnemosyne Posts towards the beginning of the month, starting with January's post next week. Additionally, I plan to post more about inspiration, upcoming Tiferet Talks, and other exciting writerly topics. Please stay tuned for more later, and have a wonderful week!


  1. Congratulations on your prestigious Pushcart Prize nomination for your story "Terminal" Melissa! Looking forward to more wonderful posts on your marvelous Mnemosyne Monthly series. And, more exciting 'writerly' topics here at Bareback Alchemy!

    Warmest regards,
    R Jeffreys
