It has been far too long since I posted to the blog. Life is busier than ever, but it is getting better. The past month, I have been courting the true love of my life, and it may seem a bit hasty, but on Thanksgiving day we got engaged. There will be more time to discuss that later, but rest assured I have finally found happiness. So, please bear with me if I don’t have as much time for writing at the moment (I also still have 4 children to raise, as well as many work projects to take up my time).
Now, the news many of you came looking for. The Forbidden! anthology is still being put together. I am pleased to say that I’ve accepted a few stories for the collection, but the vast majority remain under consideration, and they will until January, when I will make the final cuts and acceptances. We have a lot of good stories waiting, and to make sure I have room for the best of the best, I might as well wait until the last subs come in this month. I’m sorry for those of you who have been waiting since July-August. I expect it’ll be worth the wait.
As we wait for the final submissions and the forthcoming acceptances, here is the final cover art for the anthology, illustrated by the very talented Christine Leonardi:
If I don’t get back to you beforehand, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Keep reading, and check out Martinus Publishing books for great gift ideas!
