The Christmas Angels short story anthology which features a lot of great stories as well as my own called Christmas in Venice, now has a book trailer.  I thought I’d share it here with you.

My story is called Christmas in Venice and is set in the here and now but has a time travel element. It’s a tribute to a beautiful city and the tour guide who escorted us through it.

 

New Christmas Anthology Coming Soon

Standard

Whortleberry Press is at it again. Their Christmas 2011 anthology will be out soon and they have outdone themselves this time on the cover. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and is going to really appeal to a lot of folks.  My story in this one is called Christmas in Venice.  The theme was Christmas Angels and my angels are a little unusual. This press always has themes of stories with scifi, fantasy or horror elements.  Mine is along the fantasy lines this time although there is a scifi element as well.

I can’t write dark so I don’t really do horror. There may horrific things that happen to my characters but they always keep their sense of humor intact. My main character in this story has a tough experience but she bucks up and gets on with things. I like characters who don’t give up. Probably because I’m such a non-quitter in my own life. Sometimes I stick to things way past time to forget it and move on. Write what you know? Right!

Another Short Story Anthology

Standard

Last week, I heard that my story, Christmas in Venice, will be published by Whortleberry Press. I love this press and the editor in chief,  Jean Goldstrom, is a joy to work with. I’m thrilled to be in this next publication with the other great writers over there.

The theme of the anthology is Christmas Angels and the stories are all either sci-fi, horror or fantasy. Mine occurs in Venice, Italy and has a bit of a time travel element. It was a tough one to write. I tinkered and tinkered with it and finally got it to a semblance of something I could be proud of, but for a while, it was kicking my butt.  I hope the folks that read it end up liking it.

I’m not sure when it comes out, but I’ll post the cover as soon as it’s ready.
