Amanda by the Cattails (and Anthology News)

I've been a bit remiss in letting you know that I'm going to be published in a Halloween anthology edited by uber-cool bestselling writer Anne Frasier. She invited me and a group of highly talented folks to contribute stories. The anthology, by Nodin Press, will be released in September 2011.

However, I've got a more current surprise! I've been itching to revisit my original genre (the one that made me want to write): ghosts and the supernatural. If you're not ready to let summer go and would enjoy a ghost story with a touch of Clarity-of-Night dark sensuality, I've got just the thing for you! AMANDA BY THE CATTAILS (4000 words) is now available at Smashwords for $0.99.



Synopsis: Amanda's erotic awakening in the darkness of a summer night has changed more than her perception of her own body and the world around her. She is drawn by an odd allure to the pond behind her house. When Amanda is seen talking to a young man standing in the fields, she has no memory of the encounter. She must learn the identity of this ghost before the dark yearning for him destroys her.

Tabitha, awesome!

Walking Man, thanks! We're pleased with the Nook. You can read ebooks on your computer, but I couldn't see doing that for a novel.

Deb, thanks!

Szelsofa, I rushed out and snapped that picture by a nearby lake. I like how it turned out.

Kaye, it should be fun for next year's Halloween. As for Amanda, yes, it's a bit creepy!

Sere, much appreciated! Now I have to get cracking on my novel again.
