I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and discovered new stories to tell through their celebrations and gatherings. I know watching my family interact definitely inspired some new character types!
The anthology I mentioned that I am a part of is now live on Amazon! It is $2.99 and can be bought for your Kindle device or downloaded to read through the Kindle app on your smartphones and tablets.
Again, this is a charity anthology. All profits received go directly to Sandy Hook Elementary. The theme and title of this book is Everyday Heroes.
My personal contribution is a short story about a teenage Reaper who interferes with the balance of life and death. His disruption with fate turns the world into chaos, and he sets out to make things right and save those he put in danger. It is called Reaper’s Redemption.
This is a pretty cool feeling to be a part of a book for sale. Typing in the title of the book brings up my name and typing in my name on Amazon brings up the title of the book. It makes me proud and thankful to be involved in this project and also hopeful for any future projects. I’m happy not only to get my name and work out there, but to be amongst such awesome fellow students and writers and give back in our own way to a worthy cause.
Thank you for following my journey with this, and I hope you will check out our book!
Alright so a few months ago I contributed a short story to an upcoming anthology book. It was conceived, written, and created by students in the Masters of Writing program at my school, Southern New Hampshire University. Remember Patrick Donovan, the author I interviewed? He came up with idea and brought us all together to create this anthology. Here’s what he had to say on his author FB page.
“This past summer, I had the idea to try and make it a regular thing to collaborate and do a Charity Anthology for a worthy cause. I wanted to get some talented folks together, write some stories, and earn a little scratch for a worthy cause. Well, this is the first one. If all goes well (and this is a tentative date) it’s going to go on sale around Dec 23rd. All of the profits, and I do mean all, will go to benefit Sandy Hook Elementary School. It may only raise a hundred bucks, but that hundred bucks can plant a few flowers, take a few of those kids to a movie. Point is, if anyone could use a little magic and a little cheer, it’s those kids. Also, I wanted to give a big shout out and thank you to S Ravynheart for the cover artwork. He donated his time and energy to the cause, and for that I am mucho thankful.”
And here’s that beautiful cover!
I’m so happy to be a part of this project. I really hope we can continue to create more charity anthologies for other tragedies and help bring some light and relief to the people affected. This installment will consist of ten short stories and a poem, and any and all proceeds will be donated to Sandy Hook. My story is titled Reaper’s Redemption and follows a teenage Reaper as he witnesses the world falling into chaos because of a decision he made to alter the balance of life and death and interfere with fate. This collection of stories is set to release by the end of the month if all goes according to plan. If you have the money or feel compelled I hope you’ll pick up a copy to help contribute to this cause. Keep checking back here for updates on the release date, and thank you for stopping by my blog!
