It's tough to keep up with all the changes in the publishing world. Sometimes it feels like it's changing daily! Yikes!
As a newly published author it's super tough for me to keep up. We hear "diverisfy", "build your brand", "backlist is everything", and the list goes on and on.
Then you plop time management and multi-tasking writing projects on top of that list and my head can start spinning! LOL
Before Night Walker sold, I had been working on my own short story anthology. It's dedicated to Ray Bradbury. He changed my life when he challenged me to write a new short story every week for a year. Not only did I fall in love with writing again, but I kept it up for over a year and half.
Needless to say, I have almost 100 short stories written now. Not all of them are masterpieces, but I learned from each and every one.
But once my Night Series sold, I found myself buried in a whirldwind of book edits and book promotion, and my short story anthology languished.
Until Now! LOL
So my editing partner & I have finished polishing, the layout is almost complete, and I just received the cover from the cover designer. (Self-Publishing is HARD! But we can blog about that another day... :)
I realize a short story anthology will never be a best-seller, but for me it's a labor of love. I'm excited to share Forgotten Treasures with you!
Here's the back cover blurb...
Spooky tales told while huddled around a campfire.
Memories of "the good old days" shared by grandparents.
Alien invasions by flashlight, under the covers, after bedtime.
Short stories are like Forgotten Treasures you find in a trunk in the attic, just waiting to be discovered.
Inside this book lurks a Christmas loving demon, a pirate ghost who becomes flesh only one night a year, and an ancient Egyptian god who longs to be a god of rock-n-roll.
These tales, and many more, are anxious for you to open the cover and dust them off.
I'll have more release information soon, but for now you can add it to your to-read list on Goodreads! Yay! :)
Thanks for all the support this year!
