Kristi Petersen Schoonover WayBack Photo

I’m not so thrilled about that god-awful sweater I’m wearing in that photo, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that Generation X-ed, which contains my short story “Nothing to See Here,” is now available in dust jacket hardcover, paperback, Kindle, and audiobook!

Generation X-ed COVER

Crammed with all sorts of throwback goodies and the original collection written completely by those of us who lived through them, this should definitely be on every GenXer’s shelf (and makes a great gift for that impossible-to-buy-for GenXer in your life because JARTS are hard to find)! Here’s a look at the stellar TOC!

Even better? Check out the page at editor Rebecca Rowland’s website for all sorts of other goodies—for one, the other writers have throwback pix and flashbacks, too. There are teasers for the tales, reviews, links for international purchase, and a store to get your swag.

If you’re a GenXer, then you know that we’re a pretty tough bunch—we may have survived on Tang and canned frosting without parental supervision, but what we brought home when the streetlights came on will terrify you.

  1. The sweater is not bad. We all wore color-blocked stuff back then. I’ve been hearing buzz about this anthology. I think it’ll do well!

    • Ha! Thank you. I actually had LOTS of ugly sweaters back then. What’s funny is, that was one of my FAVORITE sweaters–it had a mock neck, which I still love to this day, and the black on the bottom slimmed me down.
