Psst...guess what

Hello lovelies!

Do any of you know my dear friend, Anne? Well a few weeks ago I got this email from her asking if I'd be interested in participating in a short story anthology she was putting together. After thinking about it for a few days and getting more details, I said yes.

The title of the book will be Winter Wonder and the last time I saw Anne, she showed me a cover that was being worked on, and let me tell you, it pretty much rocks. The fabulous Compass Press will be the publisher and sales of this book will be benefiting Literary, Inc!

Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of this endeavor and also the amount of sheer terror I'm feeling. I mean, I am going to be PUBLISHED and OMG WHAT IF MY STORY IS TERRIBLE? Dreams of showing up to school naked have nothing on this.


I've already begun working on my short story, because let's face it, if I don't start now I'll be stalled at Procrastination Station and I want to get my first draft done before my summer semester begins.

Check out the fabulous company I'll be in come December!

Heather McCorkle, Alexandra Shostak, Christine Fonseca, Connie KellerElle Strauss, Harley May, Jamey Stegmaier, Jen Stayrook, Jessica Naccari, Jodi Burrus, Judith Graves, Karen Amanda Hooper, Krissi Dallas, Mercedes Yardley, Mia Hayson, Natalie Cone, Regan Leigh, Susan Kaye Quinn, Tina Moss, TS Tate, Yelena Casale and, of course, the Brain to our Pinky's, Anne Riley.
