We all have versions of ourselves that we want to hold on to, or that we dream to become: someone younger, richer, stronger, sexier. Our first of six (yes, six) stories this month set up some very different battle grounds for the same fight: who we are vs. who want to be. 

In Paul Carlucci’s harrowing story, DREAM OF A BETTER SELF, people are literary replaced by better versions of themselves in an unexplained, world-wide phenomenon. They wage war. They win battles and lose each other, along with pieces of themselves. While in Big Hark’s amorous, Spanish-backdropped story, THE CAPING GAME, an American teacher longs to hold on to the younger man he used to be and to the young student that he’s fallen in lust with.

It hopefully goes without saying, but we’re super proud of all the work we publish, and it’s never easy picking the stories and essays to put forward for awards. But we can’t enter them all. So, after a lot of careful thought and a little bit of debate, these are the two fiction and two non-fiction pieces we have chosen to nominate for the Sundress Publications Best of the Net awards:
THE CLINIC by Lindsay Wells »
APARTMENT HUNTING IN THREE ACTS by Jules Archer »
PRETEND WE FELL ASLEEP by Jessica Hendry Nelson »
THE GREY GOOSE AND WILD TURKEY YEARS by Emily Walker »

Good luck to Lindsay, Jules, Jessica, and Emily!Lindsay_Wells_TheClinic.htmlJules_Archer_ApartmentHunting.htmlBigTruths_JessicaNelson.htmlBigTruths_EmilyWalker.htmlshapeimage_29_link_0shapeimage_29_link_1shapeimage_29_link_2shapeimage_29_link_3
BEST OF THE NET NOMINATIONS
Listen to Xe Sands’ brilliant read of Emily Walker’s fearless and heartbreaking essay THE GREY GOOSE AND WILD TURKEY YEARS. It tells the story of Emily’s battle with depression and of time spent with her grandfather following his own diagnosis with dementia. From Xe: “Emily Walker's work always grabs hold and shakes me… This gorgeous and heartbreaking essay pulls no punches. It simply tells the tale as she lived it.”

Julie Paul’s second story collection, THE PULL OF THE MOON, is out now through the awesome folks at Brindle & Glass. To celebrate the book’s release, we asked Julie to put together a mixtape for the collection. Here is the music that Julie chose to soundtrack the fascinating lives of her characters—their secrets and revelations, their pain and their suffering, their losses and their hopes.
