Anthology News ~ Tales of Tinfoil


Some crazy cool things have been happening behind the scenes with my writing career. And I haven’t shared because I guess it’s just taken me a while to process. Well, I’m done processing. At least with one mega piece of news I cannot wait to share with you today. Last fall, editor extraordinaire, David Gatewood, reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in writing a conspiracy-related short story for an anthology he was working on.

Would I ever!

Let me back up. I read and reread the email. David explained how he edits for Hugh Howey (you know, bestselling author of WOOL, etc.) and I kept having to convince myself David actually meant to email me. Yes, I’d independently put a few of my novels out into the world. But how the heck had he discovered one and liked it enough to invite me to be a part of this irresistible project?

Deeply honored, and always up for a challenge, I signed on.

And I couldn’t be more thrilled. David is a phenomenal editor and I recently had a blast connecting with several of the talented authors included in the anthology during a recent podcast.

In future posts I’ll go into more detail about what it was like to craft a short story verses a full-length novel. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything about this experience. There’s such a rich, genuine camaraderie among indie pubbed authors.

So . . .
