I HAVE PUBLISHING NEWS!
I am so excited. I have a story in an anthology available on Amazon with 12 other authors. I was also co-editor of the anthology Grumpy Old Gods Volume 1. We have a second Grumpy Old Gods with tentative publication date in June 2019. Plus we have a call for submission for a 3rd Grumpy Old Gods with a Halloween theme tentative publication date September 2019.
My Story Blurb: In Grumpy Old Gods Volume 1
Playing Hooky by Juneta Key: Death’s FA can’t catch a break; the head reaper himself has gone AWOL and someone placed an ad in the Paranormal Chronicles implying that the position was open! Now Alister has a waiting room full of deities who are demanding to interview for the position, a position he’s fairly certain can’t be filled by anyone except Death himself!
What happens when gods wane, retire, or just decide they need a change of employment?
13 writers took up the challenge and let their imaginations run wild in this anthology that is nearly-always amusing, somewhat insightful, and completely irreverent as we imagine the gods of yore in retirement. Volume 1.
We are adding an author a day to this Meet the Author series starting March 23-April 4th as a kick off to our launch. Grumpy Old Gods vol. 1 releasing March 30th.
So be sure to check back and read about each of the authors. We have all kinds of surprises and fun tidbits that show up randomly. Don’t miss them.
Meet the 13 Authors of Grumpy Old Gods Volume 1–read about them HERE.

IWSG ANTHOLOGY RELEASE DATE APRIL 30TH
Find love at the ball…
Can a fake dating game show lead to love? Will a missing key free a clock-bound prince? Can a softball pitcher and a baseball catcher work together? Is there a vampire living in Paradise, Newfoundland? What’s more important—a virtual Traveler or a virtual date to the ball?
Ten authors explore young love in all its facets, from heartbreak to budding passion. An Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology Release date – April 30, 2019 Young Adult Fiction: Romance –General/Paranormal/Contemporary
OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question:
If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)
Answer: Definitely the Middle Chapter as that is where I always lose steam or get lost or hit problems.
I did not expect planning and organizing to be such a learning curve, but it ain’t easy with all the moving parts of publishing, setting up, launching, interacting and keeping up with your authors. Plus you add in the doing and getting it done, Wowsa! I love it but I gots a lot to learn. *yes the s on got is on purpose*
