Happy Halloween and Holiday Sampler book

Happy Halloween!

Hope you’re having a great fall.  Leaves are just starting to change colors here and the weather is getting just a touch colder.  I’ve been going to concerts and writer events.  The latest ones being the First Aid concert at the Paramount with my family and the Festival of Books at the Puyallup Library.

Whew!  I’ve been busy.

Still working on Book 3 of Shredded Orphans, but I got sidetracked by putting together a Holiday book for the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest.  I can hardly begin to tell you how excited I am about this book.  I have a short story and a poem in it AND I got to edit the entire collection, which means I read  everything and I have to say they’re pretty great!

It’s a collection of short stories, essays and poetry to get you in the mood for the holidays.  My story is called Gift of the Stars and it’s set on the Space Station.  I had so much fun researching for this story, ie. watching hours of space station videos on YouTube.  If you haven’t seen any, I highly recommend it.  So educational.  Here’s a link to one I got a lot of information from.

Did I mention it was illustrated?  Author and illustrator Roland Trenary did this awesome illustration for my story and one each for the seven other authors in the anthology.  I’m so pleased with how it turned out and feel he completely captured the essence of my story.  What do you think?

If you want to know what everything in the picture is, then you can get the entire anthology for just 99¢ on Kindle or for $9.99 in paperback with bonus Kindle ebook matching included.  It’s a gorgeous book, perfect for the holidays and makes a great gift.

The cover for this is so pretty and done by Heather McIntyre.  You can order an ebook or print copy of Holiday Sampler by the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest here.
