Love animals? Love Anne Rice? Thrilled to announce “Haint Gonna Happen” in ANNE RICE BENEFIT ANTHO on May 22!

I’m proud to announce that I can finally let the proverbial cat out of the bag: my story, “Haint Gonna Happen,” is coming MAY 22 in Dancing in the Shadows: An Anne Rice Tribute Anthology! ALL PROCEEDS—100%—will benefit ANIMAL RESCUE OF NEW ORLEANS, which was founded within days of Katrina and saved thousands of animals post-disaster—kitties and puppies lived because of these fine volunteers, and their work continues today.

Excited? The publisher’s got a page with fun supplemental materials here.

Edited by Elaine Pascale and Rebecca Rowland, many amazing writers contributed to this project because we believe in supporting our community, and we received no compensation for this. It’s the only place you can read “Haint Gonna Happen,” get great horror by some of my favorite writers (a couple of whom appearing in 34 Orchard in the fall)—and help lots of distressed adorable animals. Please help—this organization is close to my heart!

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!

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
