What were you doing in high school? September 12, 2012

What were you doing in high school? I was on the swim team, learning to navigate the awkward byways of boy vs girl relationships, and occasionally paying attention to my studies.  What I wasn’t doing was starting a story editing enterprise.  There is however a young man who has started such an endeavour.  His name is Jake Johnson and he has amassed an impressive line up of authors for his year-long project to publish a series of themed anthologies which can be found at Smashwords (https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/jakesmonthly). Two of my short stories were in his first anthology compiled around the Science Fiction theme.  He has since collected and published anthologies each month for these other themes:  Horror, Post Apocalyptic, Science Fantasy, Punk, Bizarro, Mystery, Thriller, Alternate History, Magic Realism, and Slipstream.

All in all, it is a very impressive collection this young man has been able to put together.  His last of this year’s anthology collection project will be an anthology featuring novellas.  I was pleasantly surprised recently when he contacted me wanting to know if he could publish my story, Fall of the Faithful. After having been pulled away from my writing for months now, it was good to be remembered and I agreed to be in the anthology if his final edit still has room.  But regardless of whether I do end up in his last anthology, I am still impressed by this young man’s enthusiasm and talent for drawing together all of these works in fiction and producing a high quality collection of stories.  You should go now to check them out.
