Our newest anthology is live!!! And we’ve got a new format, too! You can get this book in Kindle, for KU, in paperback, and . . . drumroll please, in HARDCOVER!! Woohoo!! This is a collection of stories that take on the Brothers Grimm, re-imagine familiar fairytales and introduce new characters and worlds that will make your heart race with excitement. The stories range from sweet to sinister. From new love to revenge and horror. There’s something for everyone. Check it out!
Throughout the year I host Short Story writing Challenges. These are generally two week long events designed around a theme. The participants are challenged to write a short story, poem, essay, letter, etc that fits with that theme. Entries that are accepted are published in an anthology!
