Lots happening on the publishing front in the near future! Of Myths and Men: An Anthology is now available for pre-order and will officially release on July 21. I’m hoping GR8 Greeks will follow in the next month or two, but I haven’t heard definitely. Our lovely and gracious editor, Caitlin L. McCulloch, has also just published the third book in her Francine the Monster children’s series, Francine Appreciates Art, illustrated by Rayan Turner.
In further Witty Word Press news, I’m involved in several more anthologies coming out in the next year:
- FOUR, in which my character suddenly finds herself one of only four people left on Earth;
- BC Now, modern adaptations of Bible stories–mine will be based on the Book of Daniel;
- The Day Before, differing perspectives on August 5, 1945, the day before the bombing of Hiroshima;
- and The Rough, a space Western anthology (YEEHAW!).
I do hope to get Loyal Valley: Diversion finished in there somewhere, but a lot depends on health and other work demands. (Your pledge on Patreon or donation through Ko-fi can help make it happen faster–the less I have to scrape for a living, the more time I have to write!) If you’d like to see some fun Loyal Valley content sooner, however, I’m participating in #WIPJoy on Facebook this month, hosted by Bethany A. Jennings.
I also want to plug a couple of non-fiction books by friends of mine that are also available for pre-order. If you already follow my Facebook page, you’ve probably seen a few videos I’ve shared in which O. Alan Noble discusses his new book Distruptive Witness: Speaking Truth in a Distracted Age, published by InterVarsity Press. That comes out on July 17. And on December 6, Our Sunday Visitor will be releasing Amanda Martinez Beck’s memoir Lovely: How I Learned to Embrace the Body God Gave Me.
