New releases–not all mine!

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.

Frank Ross might seem like any other young man who’s struggling to care for a disabled sibling on low pay in a bad economy. But Frank’s in a bigger pickle than most: his brother Toby bears the stigmata, the marks of Christ’s Crucifixion, and bleeds in the presence of evil. When white supremacists riot in their neighborhood, Toby lands in the hospital alongside the best friend he’s never met and her three flatmates, all of whom are prophets. Yet this one day of intense suffering may bring all six of them a happy ending none of them have foreseen.

Of Myths and Men: An Anthology is coming soon (mid-May, tenatively) from Witty Word Press. I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to this project, not only because it gives me a chance to call Enola my writing partner in an official capacity, but also because my dear friend Caitlin is organizing it and her sisters are pitching in with copy-editing and illustration! The rest of the stories in the anthology sound intriguing, too, so don’t buy it just on my account. 😀
