So a friend of mine, Robison Wells, is a very gifted writer and all-around nice guy. He has a beautiful family and a very sweet dog. He suffers from multiple mental illnesses, and has debilitating issues that have stressed his family financially to the breaking point.
I'm pleased to announce that I get to be part of an anthology written by a collection of authors to raise funds for this little family. I'm sharing print space with some amazing people! The authors contributing to the anthology, Altered Perceptions, are:
J. Scott Savage
Nancy Campbell Allen
Jessica Day George
Mary Robinette Kowal
Howard & Sandra Tayler
Awesome company, right? And the theme of the anthology is kind of like a "deleted scenes" thing. Or "bonus scenes." My contribution is a bonus scene from my gothic steampunk romance, Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. The scene was so much fun to write, and is in the point of view of a character who is actually a ghost in the novel itself. The bonus chapter details her last living moments and provides a lead-in to the story. Spooky and wonderful!
So this is the link to the Altered Perceptions:
There are some awesome perks that come along with certain dollar donations, but even just $1 makes a difference! Please contribute if you can, or buy the book! You will love it.
