Update on Published Stories

Anthologies for a cause

It’s totally awesome to be able to write. And it feels wonderful to have found my passion… and to have found my readers. 🙂 Thank you.

I’ll be appearing in two charity anthologies. Inspirations Picture It & Write Collection by Ermilia (to be published, so watch out for it! ^^) and Off the KUF volume 2: Short Fiction from the Kindle Users Forum (to be published this December 2013)


Off the KUF volume 1 is now live in Amazon I’m proud to say that I have a couple of Friday Fictioneer friends there.

Why grab a copy?

1) Both anthologies are for a great cause. All proceeds from the Picture It & Write Anthology will be donated to The Girl Effect. And all proceeds from Off the KUF Volumes 1, 2, and 3 will be used to ensure the continuing existence of the Kindle User’s Forum.

2) Discover new authors. I’ve read the work of some of these writers (some are friends that I’ve met here at WordPress) and I can honestly say that the amount of talent here is astounding!

3) Treat yourself to an eclectic collection of stories. Mystery, Suspense, Horror, Romance, Literary Fiction, Humor, Sci-fi… There’s a little something for everyone. And if you’re like me, who’s a fan of almost any genre, including SF, F and WTF, then you’re gonna love these books 😉

Counting on you guys… ^^

And oh wait, there’s more! just found out that one of my stories will be published as a reprint in issue #1 of Blood Reign Literary Magazine. I’m really proud to be a part of the debut issue of this super cool publication. I wanna thank the editors for believing in my work. Mark your calendars, loves! The date is on December 13, 2013.

And lastly, THANK YOU for reading my stories every week. It’s been a little less than a year since I wrote my first 100-word story. And all these silly ideas about getting my stuff published, it all started here with you. 🙂
