Coming Soon: I am not Frazzle! And other stories for grown-ups

I mentioned in my newsletter last month, that I was busy writing a short story for an anthology which would be out by the end of the year. At that time, I wasn't able to divulge any more information than that. However, that situation has now changed!

The anthology is called "I am not Frazzle! And other stories for grown-ups". As the title implies, these stories are for adults (but they're absolutely not erotica, so get that out of your dirty little minds), but they all feature children and children's issues as important themes. It should be out by Christmas, and I'm pleased to announce that all proceeds from sale of this book will go to a local charity in the UK, called Devizes Opportunity Centre. Go check them out; I'm told that they do awesome work with kids with disabilities and other difficulties.

For this project, I'm really pleased to be in the company of some very talented authors, not to mention great people. The volume will contain the following stories:

  • "A Wish for Lucie" by Maria Miller
  • "I Am Not Frazzle!" By Darren Worrow
  • "Simon" by Dave Derby
  • "The Storekeeper" by Cecily Magnon
  • "Stingers" by Graham Downs (That's me!)
  • "The Beauty of Ugh" by Richelle E. Goodrich
  • "The Candy Vendor's Story" by Nancy Brooks
  • "Mirror Image" by Holly M. Kothe
At this moment, I must confess that I have no idea how much the final product is going to cost, but with such a fantastic line-up, I am very sure that you will not be feeling like you over-paid, should you buy this book!

Please consider supporting this worthy cause, by Liking the book's Facebook Page to stay up to date with new developments, interviews with the authors, and information about when and where it will be available as we get closer to release.

Oh, and while you're about it, don't forget to Like my Facebook Page as well. (That is, unless you already Like it, in which case, well done!)

One more thing: Don't forget that Heritage of Deceit releases on 1 December 2013. It's currently on pre-order, so reserve your copy today!
