I wanted to give you an update on my short story collection! First, here’s some info on what the collection is about:
- 8 stories with Female main characters!
- Planned release date is in May 2021.
- Genre’s of the stories include Horror, Romance, Crime Fiction, Adventure and Sci-Fi.
- These stories illustrate that women are powerful, and can be rational thinkers under pressure. They can also be devious. They can fight, they can protect, and they can win… and it can still be interesting to read about.
SOOOOO! Remmeber when I said I was going to get some illustrations done for the book? Well…. my illustrator, Ashlee Griffin, a lovely, amazing woman, has convinced me to share some of the art before my planned publicity date.
I have to admit this idea made me nervous at first. Some authors (me) are VERY meticulous about how we release sneak peeks and reveal things. Ashlee is a fine artist so she knows a lot about teasing and holding back her work for suspense but she often chronicles her journey through a project. It’s very different from releasing a book so I wasn’t sure… I talked to my partner at Rebellion LIT (where we are publishing the book) and he thought it was a good idea.
So! Here is a LITTLE snip of one of the characters from my upcoming new release: Anna Holstein!
Here is s short blurb from her story:
Anna moved at the rate of a trained sprinter, but as fast as her legs were moving, Anna felt she was at a standstill. The feeling resembled a nightmare. Stiff legs, feet weighted like sandbags. Moving, but seeming to go nowhere. — 5.28.21 #HelplessShortStories #OwnVoices
What do you think??? This is just the beginning of the Sneak Peeks and the shares that I’m planning. Also, if you’re feeling festive, please click the link and share my Tweet so I can show more people this amazing art!
