I’ve been sitting on this news for a couple of months now, but I can finally reveal it. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be contributing a short story to Fantasy for Good: A Charitable Anthology. Proceeds from the anthology will benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.
Two years ago my grandmother was stricken with colon cancer and several years ago my great aunt was, as well. I’m happy to report they’re both healthy and feisty as ever because their cancer was detected early and treated quickly. So I didn’t hesitate to sign up when I was asked to donate a story.
The story I’m contributing is called “The Bluest Hour” and is set in New Orleans. It’s about Soul Singers, people who use music to guide the souls of the departed on to the afterlife. It’s a bit of a departure for me stylistically, but I’m having a ball writing it.
The complete list of contributors to the antho has not yet been announced, but the ones they’ve shared so far are all incredibly talented writers of fantasy. But more names are coming. Big ones. Be sure to like the anthology’s Facebook page to keep up with the latest news.
Here’s a list of the contributors so far:
Michael Moorcock, Piers Anthony, Jay Lake, Alan Dean Foster, Carrie Vaughn, Jane Lindskold, Samit Basu, Nnedi Okorafor, Kelley Armstrong, Jordan Ellinger (co-editor), and Richard Salter (co-editor).
Also, if you’ve ever wanted to know how I write, be sure to check out my post today at Chloe Neill’s blog as part of her Show Your Work series.
Also, also remember that it’s less than a week until the release of RUSTED VEINS!
Halloween in New Orleans is usually a treat. But for Sabina Kane and the rest of Team Awesome, this year’s celebration has its share of nasty tricks. When Brooks’s new waitress goes missing, the Changeling asks Sabina to help him find her.
