I'm proud to announce that Inkblot Books has published a short story of mine, Uncle Aleister, in an anthology called Virtual Imaginings. (Smashwords Link Amazon Link)
Here's the book blurb:
It began with “Hey, let’s write a book!” and culminated in Virtual Imaginings, a collection of stories written by popular indie writers frequenting the online message boards at kindleboards.com. An eclectic mix of styles, these writers deliver a book that will leave the reader searching for more. All proceeds will be donated to an organization benefiting breast cancer research and treatment.
The story I offered for this collection of fifteen works was, as you know, Uncle Aleister, about a young boy who has a bogeyman problem. It's set during WWII Britain before the bombing was a constant reality, and he's being taken care of by various relatives while his parents are "in the country" (something adults used to tell children when their parents were missing or dead but they hadn't been remanded into the state or delivered to a new guardian). It's a short among stories of equal and greater quality that cover an eclectic range.
It is an honor to be included amongst many other talented and well known authors. The proceeds go to breast cancer research, and though I haven't had someone in my family affected by the disease, I do believe it's a cause worth supporting. Every cure counts.
