Giant multi-author anthology on sale Tuesday, August 7 to benefit cancer fighter.

My story "Tangled Lines" is part of the charity anthology, Hazard Yet Forward. I'm glad to be asked to be part of such an elite group for a great cause. And I am in excellent company.

Matt Duvall, Natalie Duvall, and Deanna Lepsch compiled the nearly 700 page, multi-genre eBook with stories from seventy-six writers who are connected to the Seton Hill University Writing Popular Fiction program. 

All proceeds from this project will benefit Donna Munro, a 2004 graduate of the program.  Munro, a teacher living in St. Louis, Missouri, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  An active member of the SHU WPF alumni committee, Munro helps organize the school’s annual writing conference, the In Your Write Mind Workshop.

To aid Munro and her family, faculty members, alumni, students and friends of the Writing Popular Fiction program quickly responded to compile this massive anthology.  The book features flash fiction, short stories and even a full-length novella.  In total, there are 75 works from various genres, which makes this anthology one that features something for everyone. Genres represented in the book range from horror to romance to mystery – and everything in between. 

Some of the notable writers in the anthology are:

World Fantasy Award winner Nalo Hopkinson

Bram Stoker winner Michael A. Arnzen

Bram Stoker winner Michael Knost

Bram Stoker nominee Lawrence C. Connolly

ALA/YALSA Best Book for Young Adults winner Jessica Warman

Rhysling nominees John Edward Lawson and K. Ceres Wright

Rita finalist Dana Marton

Spur winner Meg Mims

Asimov’s Readers’ Award winner Timons Esaias

WV Arts and Humanities literary fellowships winner Geoffrey Cameron Fuller.

Hazard Yet Forward co-compiler Matt Duvall says, "It’s an unprecedented collection of stories from every genre imaginable." 

This large volume is available for purchase on Kindle through Amazon starting August 7 for just $9.99.
