Parallel Lines Update and More Sneaksy Peeksies!

We have a Publication date MAY 3!!!!  and pre-order links!!!


Barnes and Noble

I know, right?  So exciting!!!

And if you are a bit confused as to what exactly speculative fiction, LG Keltner launched our group blog for promoting Parallels: Felix Was Here with a great post explaining it.

So today I am sharing two more authors and story teasers with you... anyone around the blogosphere knows both of these ladies, and I'm thrilled and honored to be in an anthology with them (the whole group honestly--we've been collaborating on this promotey thing and it is so awesome to not be doing this in a vacuum. Love being part of a team.

First up Is Crystal Collier

The Mirror People:  We think no one is watching, but what if they are? Meet the Mirror People.

Jak Ralston leads an ordinary life. Home, work, church. Repeat.

Unremarkable in every way, except for one. Every day Jak stares into the eyes of a serial killer.

We think no one is watching, but what if they are? Meet the Mirror People.

Crystal Collier is an eclectic author who pens clean fantasy/sci-fi, historical, and romance stories with the occasional touch of humor, horror or inspiration. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, four littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese.

And next we have Cherie Reich

Folds in Life and Death: In 2001, the Curse of Tippecanoe strikes again.

Allyson Moore loves using her gift of paper magics. With precise folds and an incantation, she brings paper creatures to life.

But being a Paperist has its downsides too. She sees spirits, but she can’t revive them. She folds paper lanterns to release souls, but she can’t stomach sending another family member from this earthly realm.

The Curse of Tippecanoe, conceived nearly two centuries before, claims her brother, the President of the United States. She must journey to Washington, DC to be with her orphaned niece and nephew, but nothing—not even magic—can prepare her to see the brother she hasn’t spoken to in two years and release his soul to the sky.

Cherie Reich owns more books than she can ever read and thinks up more ideas than she can ever write, but that doesn’t stop this bookworm from trying to complete her goals, even if it means curbing her TV addiction. A library assistant living in Virginia, she writes speculative fiction. Her books include the paranormal horror collection Once upon a Nightmare and the fantasy series The Foxwick Chronicles and The Fate Challenges. She is a member of the Virginia Writers Club, Valley Writers, and Untethered Realms.

Exciting news. This books sounds like it will contain some fine stories and with the authors included I'm sure we can't go wrong with it.

Hi Hart - that's good news you've got the deadline and publication date ... in the early summer - lovely time of year.

I've enjoyed the two snippets - Crystal's Mirror People and then Cherie's Folds in Life and Death - interesting title from Cherie ...

Cheers and good luck to you all and happy weekend - Hilary
