On July 17, 2010, The Short Humour Site published Amanda LaPera's humorous short story "Justice is Served."




The short story "Absence of Mind," which examines the effects of Alzheimer's Disease on a family, was selected for publication in the electronic version of the Midwest Literary Magazine (April 2010). "Absence of Mind" was also selected for inclusion in Midwest Literary Magazine's Spring 2010 Anthology which was available for purchase through June 2010.





"Secrets," a short story that explores the dark side of humanity and questions childhood innocence was selected for inclusion in Pill Hill Press's Anthology: Daily Flash 2011: 365 Days of Flash Fiction. "Secrets" was featured for March 28 on page 154. This anthology is currently available for purchase at (ISBN-13: 978-1617060106).



And entered just for fun, a one-line story was accepted and posted on (archive story #3266). Kindly ignore the terrible lapse in judgment in regards to spelling.
