CHANNILLO
The Deer's Ashes
By Erin McDade

Series Description:

*Chapters One & Two releasing on March 30 & 31!* (Subsequent chapters released on the 15 & 30th of each month!)

The air of the late Southern summer was thick and heavy, more like soup than air, but I didn’t mind. The shade of the trees by the river was cool; the sun barely peeked through their thick leaves to the ground below. I shifted in my hammock, closed my eyes, and took a deep breath. The sounds of the river rushing next to me, the wind rustling through the trees above, and the muffled sounds of voices walking up and down the path always calmed my heart...

Maddie Sam is a twenty-six-year-old bisexual artist, four years out of college and still working at the local coffee shop downtown. She is has a vague relationship with Zadie, who is still in the closet and insists she's going to marry a good ol' boy one day. Suddenly, someone from Maddie Sam's past arrives in town, not entirely by accident.

As I passed the small used bookstore, I saw a faded blue Nissan truck across the street with stickers all along the bumper. I paused and looked at it, and in a rush the memories all came back, bright as day, overwhelming me.

Author Bio For Erin McDade:

My name is Erin McDade—I’m a writer, Assistant Professor of Developmental English, Communications grad school student, mom, wife, & avoid consumer of social media + pop culture. I write short stories, flash fiction, fiction series, personal essays, & articles on both Medium + Channillo.

I’m an introvert that loves people, identify as queer/bisexual, drink a lot of coffee, have a Harry Potter tattoo, and still think Bleed American is the best Jimmy Eat World album (closely followed by Futures). I was briefly famous in the pre-Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes fandom for writing the Baker Street Fanfiction Academy.
