THE THING THAT TURNED ME


"Luke, you may not remember all the times you carried me on your shoulders.

You may not remember that time you dropped back to tell me it wasn't that much farther.

Or the time you waited at the crossroads to let me catch up with my gimp leg.

But I do.  And I tell you this: no matter what it takes, we ride home together tonight."
 - Loy

I am honored to be in the company of 29 great authors in the anthology, THE THING THAT TURNED ME.

The cover reveal for it will be May 1st.  

And the release date is May 31st.  

Mark your calendar!

Randi Lee Mailloux is the guiding light behind it.  

Give her a round of applause for all the hard work she is doing.  

Harper L. Jameson designed an amazing cover for the anthology.  I tip my Stetson to you.  :-)

Oh, my story in it?

"Wednesday's Child."

Lucanus, the mysterious Greek physician, is the narrator of Loy's story in the anthology.

Guess what? 

 Lucanus is also the ship's physician to the Xanadu, the 1st Air/Steamship in my 1867 Steampunk novel,  

THE NOT-SO-INNOCENTS ABROAD to be released this March.



Think of it as Cross-Pollination. 


 If readers like Lucanus in my novel, they might be tempted to see his adventure in THE THING THAT TURNED ME.  

And the reverse could be true as well.  Hey, bees get a lot done that way.  :-)

What do you think?

    1. Thank you. :-) I sent you an email today. I think I may have fumbled with the original one to you long ago. Sigh, I am such a cyber Wiley E Coyote!

  4. I love the idea of cross-pollination. To see a character in new surroundings and from a different perspective would be very interesting. Congrats on the anthology.

    1. I am so glad that you like my idea of cross-pollination. I, too, thought it would be revealing in what sort of person Lucanus was in 1867.

      You see some dark griefs of the man in my novel.

      Thanks for being happy for me. :-)
