Release: 2021 BOULD Awards Anthology Available Now!

“In this fourth annual edition, you’ll find 100 of the weirdest, most outrageous, wackiest, scariest, puzzlingest (is that really a word?) short stories submitted for this anthology in 2021.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be shocked, scared, and maybe even perflutzed by some of the stories you’ll find, in many different genres and styles. But with nearly every story, we know you’ll be surprised.

But now it’s time for you to quit reading these promo bits, brace yourself and dig in. Have fun!”

I have two stories featured in this anthology, A Mother’s Heart and Rare Reception ~ and was amazed to learn that out of the 100 stories featured in this year’s anthology, A Mother’s Heart was awarded 2nd place! This year’s volume is so thick that the print version had to be split into two editions, but there’s a Kindle version available!

Publication Announcement: Short Story Anthology

If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, this won’t be a surprise for you.

Last year I was contacted by an acquisitions editor in Russia who had stumbled upon a story of mine that appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, wanting to know if I’d be willing to consider working with the publishing company she represented on a book. They were specifically interested if I had more short fiction featuring Detective Shaw, the main character from the piece It’s All About The Cat.

Well, I did. Detective Shaw is a reoccurring character who’s stories have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies. But I felt a little sketchy about the offer, because, at least in my experience, this isn’t the way it usually goes . . . it seemed to me like it could have been a scam.

It turns out it wasn’t!

The publishing company purchased the use of all my previously published pieces featuring Detective Shaw to use in a book intended to help Russian speakers learn to speak English, and vice versa. This would be achieved, they explained, by presenting the stories in both languages. It was simple enough on my end – all I had to do was sit back while they performed the translation, the formatting and design. Easy peasy.

And now . . . the book was just released and I have my contributor copies in hand!!!

But it got me thinking . . . why not release a version in the US?

So guess what? I am!

Check back later this week for the cover reveal! And if you don’t feel like waiting, join my mailing list and be among the first to check it out and get a copy for FREE!
