Lex Talionis

Postcard Shorts has published one of my short stories Lex Talionis, which means an eye for an eye.  The exact Latin to English translation is "law of retaliation."

Postcard Shorts publishes stories short enough to fit on a postcard- 250 words max.  If you are a writer, you might consider submitting a story to them. 

Lex Talionis is unlike anything I have ever written. I am not quite sure where it came from, but I think you might find it interesting.  Good or bad, I'd love a comment from you.  Don't worry about what you say.  I asked Pete if he liked it and he said, "No."  Nothing can be much worse than that (even though he
quickly added that he thought it was written well).  Lex Talionis!

Dear Sweet Laurie

Always a delight when a sweet girl writes a really delicious piece of maleovent revenge. So piercing a piece and your love of red, from cardinals now on to blood continues! Good fun, like the engorgment of the tongue, that stays with me. Nice link and always a wonderful to see you being acknowledged! Congratulations :)
