There will be a great variety of authors, including fantasy, dystopian, romance, and multi-genre authors (you’ve heard of Rocky Rochford, right?!). I’ll be giving away a signed paperback copy of my book along with a bookmark, a tea book and pin, and an Amazon gift card. Here’s the link for you to attend. I hope to see you there!

New Short Story in a Dark Anthology

This year has been a very productive writing year for me, and to finish it out, you The December Awethology - Dark Volumecan read my short story “Piece and Quiet” for FREE in The December Awethology – Dark Volume. It’s a wonderful holiday anthology filled with short dark writings by plenty of fantastic authors, including Rocky Rochford, William Frank Lloyd, Rebecca McCray, Paul White, and many more. What kind of darkness are we talking about? Every kind! That’s what’s so great about this anthology: the only themes that connect these pieces are “dark” and “holiday”. Download your Kindle copy for free and enjoy.

If you’re looking for lighter stories, there’s also a light volume of The December Awethology that is just as packed but with diverse light holiday stories. It features excellent authors like Kelly Hall, Chrissy Moon, Chess Desalls, Sharon Lipman, and loads of others. And most importantly, it’s also free!

My advice? Download both versions and alternate between the dark and light volumes. You’re bound to discover new favorite authors you hadn’t heard of before!

Sixteen-year-old Emily Haven, heroine of the girls’ hockey team at Lindsey High, has spent her young life keeping two secrets: her rapidly deteriorating home life and the seemingly supernatural power that makes her a star on the ice. When she begins seeing visions of a lost and ragged boy reflected in mirrors and shop windows, a series of events unfolds that tears her from 21st-century Minneapolis and leaves her stranded in another world with horrors to rival those she has left behind. Lost amidst creatures of fantasy and legend, she’s forced to confront the demons of both her past and future to unravel the riddle of the mysterious boy and embark upon a journey to uncover long forgotten histories and the dark, cloaked figure in the shadows behind them all. Caught between opposing forces of a war she doesn’t understand, Emily must find new strength within herself and, above all, the will to remember her friends.
