That short story project I began back in May has finally reached the point of maturation. Or at least, it will reach that point in two weeks.
Tributaries Press is releasing April's Roots, my compilation of short stories relating to the women of Ugly Stick's family tree, on Tuesday, November 19, 2013.
Tuesday, November 19, 2013!
April's Roots will be available on Amazon.com and other online retailers in both beautiful paperback and e-book form ($7.99 and $.99, respectively).
Here's a quick summary of what the book will include!
Long before April Somerfield found out about her family curse, each of
the daughters who came before her had to face it as well. This collection
of short fiction tells the stories of six generations of women in April’s
family tree, spanning two centuries and a rich variety of settings:
A high school reporter about to scoop a decades-old secret...
A new mother learning that beauty comes with a cost...
A confident fourth grader facing bullies for the first time...
A pair of sisters trying to break into the silent film industry...
A guilt-ridden mother about to give birth in a frontier town...
A daughter seeking the strength to start over on her own...
This companion book to Ugly Stick offers a range of perspectives on
family, friendship, and the true meaning of beauty.
I'm super-excited, triple-delighted, and I hope you are too! Please stay tuned to this site and my official Facebook page for exclusives, sneak peeks, and maybe even some giveaways.
Thanks, and Happy Reading!
