September 22, 2021 – Received word today that one of the three short stories, “When Blood Wants Blood”, will be reprinted in The Hallowzine’s second issue, along with seven of my horror haikus in October. Thrilled to see that story making the rounds, again, though this will be its last run. Time to finally lay it to rest, along with “Roadkill” and “Windows”. Many thanks to Laura and Lindsay for my second acceptance!

David A. Estringel will be “Featured Artist of the Month” for November 2019 at Alien Buddha Press!!!

August 12, 2019 – Thrilled to announce that along with having my short story “Windows” and three haiku poems (“The Story of Us”, “Stop & Recalibrate”, and “Moment of Clarity”) reprinted in Alien Buddha Zine’s November Issue (#12), I will also be “Featured Artist of the Month” at their WordPress site. Rounding off the year properly, I would say!

Two short stories accepted for reprint at Logos Literature!!!

August 5, 2019 –  Short stories “Windows” (about dealing with a parent with Alzheimer’s Disease) and “When Blood Wants Blood” (about Santeria, ancestor worship, and life struggles) were accepted for reprint today at Logos Literature (publication on 85/5/19 and 8/6/19, respectively). They have been INCREDIBLY supportive of “Roadkill” and I, so it was a “no-brainer” in deciding to give my remaining two short stories one last “go-round” with Logos Literature and Founder & Lead Editor Kaiter Enless before they are FINALLY “put out to pasture” (excluding any current submissions that are pending review/publication).  

“Windows” scheduled for reprint (and its last hoorah) at Alien Buddha Zine for Issue #12!!!

July 4, 2019 – Short story “Windows” accepted for reprint at Alien Buddha Zine for their November 2019 issue (#12). Looking forward to appearing in ABZ, again, and happy that those will be the pages this story will be put to pasture in. “Windows”, along with “Roadkill” and “When Blood Wants Blood”, is one of the first short stories I ever penned and got published and has had a really great run. Time for these ‘lil’ darlings’ to be put to bed, though…Bigger and better stuff coming.

“When Blood Wants Blood” at Fishbowl Press!!!

June 14, 2019 – Santeria-themed short story “When Blood Wants Blood” reprinted at Fishbowl Press today. Many thanks to Josh Rodriguez, Fishbowl’s editor-in-chief, for all his support and the hook-up with the amazing graphic art that accompanies the story. Glad “When Blood…” continues to attract editors and readers, finding its way to the most amazing and coolest publications.
