HUMP it up!

Hello friends! It’s that time of year for lists, prizes, for nominations, holiday music and ribbon candy. And there is lots going on in the literary world. So much to read! So little time!

To honor World AIDS Day on December 1, 2012, I added my poem, “What Some Boys Do” to the Fictionaut site: http://fictionaut.com/stories/robert-vaughan/what-some-boys-do
