So, as you know, I have received Honorable Mentions in the last two Word Weaver Writing Contests I entered. Of course, I would have liked a higher ranking, but I was perfectly Okay with it, because I knew this would lead to other opportunities, and it has!!
The host of the contest, Dan Alatorre, has decided to gather a bunch of authors together and compile an anthology. I was invited to submit a story for consideration. And….
I made the cut!! I’m in!!
What does this mean for me?
This will be my FIRST published story
It will be published in a book along with 20+ other authors who will also be promoting the book. One author sold over 20,000 copies of her debut novel. Many other contributing authors have huge blog followings, or massive Twitter followings and have appeared in magazines, and other published books. The editor has 18 published titles and has been translated into over a dozen languages, and is read all over the globe. A fantastic opportunity for a new author, such as myself, to be included in a project like this.
It will be an awesome learning experience of self-publishing a novel and all that goes into it.
Did I mention this will be my FIRST published story? Of course I did, that’s a pretty big deal!!
What is it about?
It’s an anthology of scary stories about ghost ships, eerie daydreams, haunted houses and much more. Entitled:
The Box Under the Bed
Other than be super excited for me? I’m glad you are, because I am beyond excited!! You can support not just me, but all of the authors, by pre-ordering the Kindle version of the book. It will be released October 1, 2017, and be automatically delivered to you then. More formats will be available at a later date. Click the link below:

this is just the beginning!!
