This weekend was mighty busy…and the next few posts are going to cover quite a lot of what has kept this space quiet for the past week…but before I get into that, I need to take a minute to focus on the incredibly awesome thing which happened this weekend which I’ve been too busy to even share at all.
I have a new book out!
Okay, well, to be fair, it’s a book written by a ton of authors and my contribution is but a portion of the short stories included, but Paws & Claws, Cake & Quill’s animal-themed short story anthology dropped on April 1st (no ‘foolin”) and I couldn’t be more excited about it…unfortunately I’ve just been a little more excited about everything else going on that I completely forgot to tell you all.
Now, the question on all your minds is obvious: Why should I buy this book?
I get that you might be concerned that this book is only somewhat written by me. I do. I mean, who wants a book only written in part by their favorite author when they can get any of six whole books written entirely by him?
And the answer is simple. There are some amazing authors our there who don’t have the initials AO…and a great number of them just so happen to be a part of the Cake and Quill Collective.
And to be completely honest here, I absolutely love this book. Like every anthology ever put together, there are pieces which will work for you and pieces which won’t, but overall, this is a spectacular collection of stories to keep you wanting to read more from each and every one of these word artists.
Before I finish my sales pitch, I’m just going to throw out there that my story just so happens to be something of a murder mystery, which just so happens to take place on a farm, which just so happens to be part of the excitement which has been occurring in my very real personal life…but more to come on that soon.
For now, read Cake & Quill’s Paws and Claws to learn about how eating grass can affect sheep’s ability to process information.
