FROM THE HEART – an anthology for a good cause

I’m excited to be able to announce that the public presale of the Writers for Charity anthology From the Heart, edited by Beth Davis, is now open. All the profits from this book will go to children’s charities (specifically, Children’s Hospital and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Foundation).

Don’t feel pressured to buy, of course, but it is a good cause and I’m happy to have a previous column reprinted in within its pages–“Simple Things” an ode to my then little son and his song about, of all things, cud!

Public Pre-Sale Prices:
Single Book: $22.50 + S&H
Carton (six books): $130 + S&H

Books are regularly priced at $25 each.

“On the Wall” will be up at everydayfiction.com tomorrow!

I’ve been writing a fair amount of short stories lately–very short, like under 1000 words. These little tales are fun to write and also beneficial from a craft point-of-view. (I usually write them as a form of exercise, practicing something specific in each one.) Then, as more “exercise,” I’ve been taking the stories a few steps further–through an edit and polish and then submission (when I like what I’ve come up with that is. I don’t rework/submit every one).

Tomorrow (Friday, May 7) one of my short stories will be the story of the day at Every Day Fiction Magazine.Please go and read it and leave a comment: “On the Wall” by Ev Bishop. I’d love to receive responses!

Happy writing and reading this week, everyone!

Every Day Fiction

April has been an incredibly hectic month for me. I keep thinking I’ll be able to post all about it–and then something else happens. Oh well, that’s life sometimes. I do have a little something in the works though . . . maybe it’ll get put up Monday?

Happy news for today though–I had a leisurely writing morning, yay! Complete with warm, delicious coffee after coffee, time to play on the Internet and about 800 words in my WIP. 800 words isn’t much to get excited about, I realize, but they were good words and I was excited by how quickly and HARD I fell back into the story.

In other good news: Every Day Fiction accepted a short story I wrote today, which was very fun for me, since I go to their site and read the day’s short story, pretty much every day. If you don’t already, check them out at: http://www.everydayfiction.com

When I know the publication date, I will post it here.

And . . . well, that’s it for today. Have a lovely weekend, everyone. I hope you’re out enjoying sunshine or inside curled up with a good book–or right, you could be writing–that’d be great too! 😀
