Cover Reveal: A Quiet Shelter There Anthology

Squeeee! The cover art for A Quiet Shelter There just arrived in my inbox, and is absolutely perfect for a collection of speculative fiction (fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, etc.) stories all about animals. This is a benefit anthology for homeless animals, and I am honored that my story, "Charlie", will be included. To see all the contributors, click here. You will see the very talented Cat Rambo among them.

The cover for A Quiet Shelter There was designed by Heather McDougal. The anthology is forthcoming from Hadley Rille Books, edited by Gerri Leen.

The Stories Behind the Stories

I find the creative process fascinating—how it differs from person to person, and even from one work to another. Gregory L. Norris, one of my fellow contributors to the anthology, Ocean Stories, has gathered the backstories and inspirations for some of the tales, with a note from the editor about the creation of the anthology. Read about it on his blog.

Ocean Stories is available now!

Ocean Stories anthology available now!

Two researchers set off to explore the mysteries of the deep, but what they find is beyond their imagining . . . a lobsterman, concerned with the changes in his recent haul, calls upon an old friend to help him unlock the mystery . . . A woman, wagered in a game of chance, seeks her fortune on a very special ship. 

Ocean Stories offers 22 tales of the deep ranging from fantasy to horror to humor. Filled with selkies and mermaids, sirens and sea monsters, myth and magic, these tales explore both the immeasurable beauty and the danger found lurking below the surface of the sea.

My short story, "Save Pinkeye", the tale of a mermaid lawyer defending a shark accused of overfeeding, is included in the anthology.

Ocean Stories is available now from:  Amazon.com  Barnes & Noble  Elektrik Milk Bath Press 
Coming soon from Amazon.ca
