Short Story News

I used to write short stories, didn’t I..?

Apparently I still do, and three of them have recently been accepted for publication:

Permanently Legless (m/m) is the story of a casualty of the war in Afghanistan:

The Taliban may have taken both Chris’s legs, but he came back from Afghanistan with his sense of humour and his lust for life firmly intact. The one thing that can shake his confidence is meeting Josh, the one-night stand from before his tour of duty he hasn’t been able to forget.
It turns out Josh hasn’t forgotten Chris, either. But with Chris such a changed man, can they still have a future?

Due out from Amber Allure on January 22nd, 2012.


And I’m delighted to say that Nine Days and Seven Tears and Belling the Kat (both f/f) will both be appearing in She Shifters, a Cleis Press anthology of lesbian shapeshifters. More details on the anthology when I have them! Open-mouthed smile

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:

    Oh congratulations! Such exciting news. I am definitely excited about Permanently Legless. I am always looking for stories with characters with a bit of diversity (racial, physical), etc. Sounds really interesting!
