Well, it’s finally out! Darkly Never After is now available in paperback and ebook formats, and I couldn’t be happier with it. My paperback copy showed up a couple of days ago, and the print quality is really nice. It’s a thick book, nearly 400 pages, and it’s chock-full of all kinds of dark fairy tales, fables, and modern dark fiction. I’m also excited because it is the first time that N J and I have been published together. Patti L. Geesey, one of the contributors, really did a great job with the editing. The anthology’s website is forthcoming, so for now, feel free to visit Amazon or CreateSpace to order a copy (CreateSpace is recommended if you can, since we’ll get double the royalties to send to St. Jude’s for children across the globe).
As you can read from the back cover, Darkly Never After is an anthology that holds the elements of the stories we loved as children, matured to be enjoyed by our minds as they are now. As well, the anthology is a charity work, donating all royalties to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I have been very honored to work on the project, and was delighted that the anthology’s coordinator decided to use my book design service, Country Mouse Design, to format the book. This is an excerpt of my story, “The Lady Koi”. I hope you enjoy it!
