My short story, Filthy Lucre was selected to be included in the anthology, IT’S ALL IN THE STORY.
I hope many of my Southern California friends will find time to attend the book launch at the Book Carnival bookstore in Orange November 2. Signed copies of the book will be available at the launch.
IT’S ALL IN THE STORY
The SCWA Anthology project has moved from story submission and selection, to production, on schedule for an October publication.
Sixty-four stories were submitted for evaluation. The quality of these submissions was exceptional. An editorial committee read and ranked each manuscript, and though each was worthy of inclusion, ultimately 24 were chosen for publication in this edition. During the ranking process, author identities were carefully hidden from the committee, and all rankings were based solely on merit. The result is an amazing collection of stories.
In addition, every author of a story that we were not able to include has been offered an hour of free story consultation by Pam Sheppard, a professional who served on our editorial committee. Our hope is that sales of our anthology justify publishing another one, and that this is just the beginning for SCWA. We are grateful for the tremendous response and support, and look forward to branching out in new ways that will add value to our writing community.
The book launch is scheduled for November 2nd, 2017, at Book Carnival in Orange, CA, at 7pm. For more information visit the SCWA Anthology website at: www.SCWAanthology.com.
