BATS IN THE BELFRY anthology




The Bats in the Belfry anthology is moving along nicely! So far I've received about half of approximately twenty-five (pay no attention to number on above cover) submissions, and expect the rest within the next two months. I'd originally planned to publish this myself, but the stories have knocked me out, and I now plan to submit the anthology to real publishers.

What variety! A couple of the stories are laugh-out-loud funny from beginning to end. Others are more along the lines of crime fiction. Some moody and sad and dark. Some paranormal. This is going to be an awesome anthology. On the bummer side, I've had to turn down a couple of stories. That was tough, especially since I issued the invitation. But contributors raised the bar, and I readjusted my expectations and hopes for this project. I might have to do this again, because it's been fun and rewarding.
