It’s GENERATION X-ED Pub Day!

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!

GEN-XER? Show your pride with SWAG ahead of the release of GENERATION X-ED!

GENXED T-SHIRT

Me, rockin’ my GenX-ed T-shirt!

The release date of Dark Ink Books’ Generation X-ed —which contains my short story “Nothing to See Here”—is almost here! Hardcover, paperback, Kindle and Audiobook will be available January 26, and if you want to pre-order the print editions, you can do that here: https://bit.ly/GetGenXed

Since it’s the first (and I think, only) anthology featuring GenX horror stories written by real GenX-ers, if you’re a GenX-er (or even if you’re not and you want to know what it was really like?), then this is a must-own for your shelf (yes, even if you’re not a big reader). It’s chock full of references to all things GenX: from rotary phones to the Challenger, from Satanic Panic to leg warmers, it’s all here.

However—here’s something even cooler: show your GenX pride and get some swag! Beer and shot glasses, coffee mugs, stickers and T’s—fun for you or the GenX-er in your life (because they make great gifts). Check it out on the anthology’s official store here.

CROP GEN-X MUG BLOG ART

You can get a mug with all the writers’ names on it, or you can get a mug with just the logo.

Know a GenX-er hitting 50 this year? What’s better than the book, some swag, and maybe one of those great old snacks we used to have that are still around, like (Jeno’s, now Totino’s) Pizza Rolls, Cool Ranch Doritos, or microwave popcorn? Just a thought!

You can also visit the official Generation X-ed page, which has all sorts of treats like advanced reviews, way-back memories from the writers, links for purchase in several countries, trailers, and other goodies. Check that out here: https://rowlandbooks.com/generation-xed

“Nothing to See Here” to appear in GENX-ED: The authentic antho of Gen-X terrors!

Gen-Xed Dark Ink Books Logo

I’m beyond ecstatic to announce that my short story, “Nothing to See Here,” will appear in Dark Ink Books’ anthology GenX-ed … the original horror fiction anthology completely by Gen-Xers—and what we brought home when the streetlights came on will terrify you. If you did things like eat powdered Tang and cookies for dinner, spent hours playing Atari, were awed by a 13-inch TV and/or did dangerous tricks on bicycles without a helmet? Or if you’re not a Gen-Xer and want to see what you missed? You need this book!

In “Nothing to See Here”: On the heels of the Challenger disaster, Doreen’s dying mother warns her of the approach of a deadly cloud—but the real danger lurks in a place she doesn’t expect.

That’s not the only trip down a dangerous memory lane. Edited by Rebecca Rowland, these twenty-two tales by latchkey kids Read the rest of this entry
