More Alums at the Reunion

And two more have been added to our wonderful party!!
What kind of woman buries her husband in the morning and sleeps with his best friend that night? And so begins Glad Tidings, a delightful Class of 85 story with a holiday flair to it will come out 12/1/10.

An Inn Decent Proposal, which features the old and glorious Summerville Inn, with a fabulous cast of out-there characters, including a New Jersey mobster wannabe, comes out 12/29/10.

In each case the cover art is gorgeous; I am thrilled to have both stories join the party.

On a sadder note, our extremely talented cover artist Nicola Martinez is no longer with us. We will miss having her beautiful covers for the stories. And... we have come to the decision to close submissions to the Reunion effective December 31st. We are hoping to have enough submissions between now and then to take us well into 2011.

I hope you enjoy some if not all of these stories.

Things are looking up

Today is Monday. I've not needed narcotics for pain control since Saturday. I've also learned, painfully, not to overdo on computer work. "Light" typing means exactly that: not hours on end spent at the keyboard editing class of 85 stories.
In my defense, I overworked because of an inner compulsion to send three more class of 85 stories on the road toward release. I shall hold off on announcing the titles and authors until we are closer to the actual date but I am pleased to say two are from repeat authors Sharon Buchbinder and Jannine Gallant. Great stories. Really great. Lots of laughter.

Since my last post regarding the Class of 85, two more stories have been scheduled for release:
STAR POWER by MJ Fredrick comes out this week. It is a fun story about a Brad Pitt type movie hero who wasn't much in high school but turns into a hunk on screen. His mother shames him into attending the reunion. He can't say no to Mama--and to stave off potential groupies [and there is a few hysterical funny scenes about this very thing]--he brings along his personal assistant. Both are secretly in love with each other; it's interesting to see how each comes to grip with that fact.
Simply gorgeous cover art features the real deal Charlotte-Genesee lighthouse which stands on the bank of the Genesee River as it feeds into Lake Ontario. The art work is lovely as you'll see to the left.

SOMETHING MORE by Keena Kincaid, a November release, is all about secrets and how avoiding them like the elephant in the middle of the living room can bring families down. this is a very strong story. I am proud to be part of it.
I hope you'll enjoy them too!
