I am thankful to you and want to inform you of my success in the anthology world:
1. 31 Days of October, Shae Hamrick, is a collection of ghostly tales to celebrate Halloween. My story takes a slightly different take on this occasion, Living Sacrifice. It is available through Amazon and Goodreads.com.
2. Additional Christmas Moments by Yvonne Lehman. This is a faith-based collection of stories and reflections for the Christmas season. My story, No Room in the Sky, is about a plane trip to visit in-laws in a neighboring state. Weather forces the trip to be by bus instead.
Hey, I'm in the smiling-speaker lineup for the Okanagan Valley Writers Festival in Penticton, BC, Canada, April 9-7, 2017.
I'm slated to give 3 workshops: Catching Readers' Attention: Hooks and Bait; Fiction Flaws: Find Them, Fix Them; Fictionalizing Real Life. Please pass this info on to folks who may be interested.
Released "Paper or Plastic? The Grocery Store Chronicles," my memoir of working as a senior-citizen night cashier chronicling the odd, uplifting, and sometimes sad slices of life in a chain-based grocery store in the 'hood’ from July 2013 to November 2014.
It's up on Amazon and will be up on other sites shortly. Note the paperback and Kindle versions are not linked as of yet.
Began my tenure as a member of the steering committee for the Central Carolina Community College Creative Writing Committee, one of only two junior colleges with a writing degree program in the U.S.A.
Was asked for ten copies of “Kill All Cats,” for the Wake County Library System (North Carolina) after they reviewed it. “We love it.”
A story of mine, "The Visitor," is up in the October issue of Front Porch Review.
Those who've been here for some time may recall helping me with the thriller First Tuesday last year. It will be available free on Amazon Monday as part of a promotion. You're included on the Acknowledgments page, too, of course!
