Minus Spine: Review of “The Path to Mental Health” by Brandy Langenwalter:

It’s much quirkier and wryly funny (or funnily wry) than the clunky title suggests–and brings up an interesting question that I’ve been wondering about (not for the sake of my mental health but something that I’m writing): can supreme sanity and the subsequent lack of drama in fact cause insanity?

And a Few Blog Mentions…

So I got lucky about five years ago and managed to get the first short story I ever wrote published in a respected online literary journal called Toasted Cheese. … the fact that Writer’s Digest routinely names TC as one of the best websites for writers meant I was bouncing off the walls when I found out TC was publishing my story. Basically, it gave me the confidence to keep my butt in the writing chair and keep plugging away. … Over the next few years, I had several other stories published here and there, but for some strange reason I told myself I would never blog about writing until I sold my first novel. Well, I recently did just that. –Ryan Potter [Congratulations! -TC Editors]

“Me? I decided to write in the genre that’s published in about six publications, mostly online, mostly with offbeat names like Toasted Cheese (I can just hear that conversation with my mother now: ‘Hey, Mom! I’ve been published!’ ‘Where? Esquire? Atlantic Monthly?’ ‘Um. It’s an online journal. Called Toasted Cheese.’ ‘….’).” –zonkered.net [Looking forward to seeing a submission! -TC Editors]

Kristi Petersen (2nd place, Dead of Winter 2006) suggests checking out Toasted Cheese “if you like well-crafted short fiction. I’m NEVER disappointed in what I find there, and Toasted Cheese has become a must-read every few months.” Pencils! Writing Workshop

“I also found this superb literary e-zine called Toasted Cheese. Has writing prompts, forums and contests. Very very nice.” The I’mPerfect Mom
