New anthology available: Etched in Memory
Readers of this blog are surely aware that I'm a member of a very active writing group, the Writers of Chantilly. What they may not know is that this year I edited the group's annual anthology, which just in the past week became available on Amazon and Kindle.
I am quite proud of my work on this, and I learned a lot from my first time as editor, about both the editing process and about writing. Unfortunately, I do not have any stories appearing in this anthology, though I tried writing two. The first took a twist (into erotica, oddly--never had that happen before) that I felt made it inappropriate for the book, and the second I was unable to finish.
For fans of my writing (all two of you!) I promise that next year's anthology will definitely have one or more of my stories. In the meantime, I can heartily recommend this book as being crammed full of fascinating short stories and essays. Here's the book's description from its back cover:
In this latest anthology from the renowned Writers of Chantilly, you will discover a variety of unforgettable stories describing incidents that have left an indelible mark on their participants. Some are from the past, some from the imagination, all are Etched in Memory.
