I was recently approached by fellow goodreads author, R.T. Kaelin who wanted to do something to help out with the relief efforts for the victims of Hurricanne Sandy. He's putting together an anthology with short stories that demonstrate taking tragedy and turning it into Triumph. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Americal Red Cross. How could I possibly say no to that?

While he'll need some time to get all the author's contributions, he put up a crowd fundy page where you can donate either $7 or $50 now. You can find it here . I've added a story from Elan to the book, but this one has a new character - and a heroine no less. So no Royce and Hadrian but hopefully someone brand new you can fall in love with. Please consider picking up a copy...and please help to spread the word by putting the book on your shelves.



For those interested in knowing more about my entry, it's called "Traditions," and is based in the world of Elan (the setting for my Riyria Revelations series). It features a new never-before-seen heroine (so no Royce and Hadrian in this one). The idea came from Shirley Jackson's famous short story, "The Lottery" where the livelihood of a town is dependent on the sacrifice of one of their own. When Annie is selected, she takes matters into her own hands and dares to challenge the town's traditions in order to move to a new future, which is fraught with potential danger but also possess the possibility for new opportunities.

The Anthology is released. Here are the final details:



It's an anthology of 41 short stories that each author has donated work to, and every penny that it makes will go to The Red Cross to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. Also adding their considerable talents to the project are: Sarah Chorn, Bryan Thomas Schmidt, and Rob H. Bedford who joined R.T. in editing the stories, and Kevin Ward who contributed the cover artwork. It sells for just $6.99 and so for every copy sold The Red Cross will receive $4.89 and you'll get some great reads to boot! You can purchase the ebook at: Amazon | Barnes & Noble.

Here are the goodreads authors who have contributed:
