Special Announcements: Free E-book and a Call for Submissions

Because of the time-senstive nature of these announcements, I didn't want to wait until Monday to share them with my blog readers. 
 
The first announcements comes from Pat Smith, publisher of Welkin Press.
 
For a limited time, Pat is giving away copies of Shadows After Midnight e-book through the Amazon Kindle store. The promotion runs through Tuesday, March 26. The anthology features "12 spooky tales," including my short story "Stairway to Heaven." 
 
The second announcement comes by way of Colleen Sell, former editor ofthe Cup of Comfort Series.
 
Although Colleen is not involved in this project, she is helping spread the word about a call for submissions for Grammy-award winning songwriter Gloria Gaynor's anthology, How I Survived.

The editors are looking for "personal narrative essays that tell the story of how you survived the experience and how the song influenced your life. We’re looking for real-life stories that read like fiction—similar to the stories in the Cup of Comfort book series, compiled and edited by Colleen Sell."
 
The book will include 50 real-life stories of 1,000-1,500 words each.
 
Contributors whose essays are selected will receive a payment of $75, a complimentary copy of the book signed by Gloria Gaynor, and a signed photo of Ms. Gaynor.
 
Note the short deadline: April 20, 2013.
 
Send submissions to: glolo2004@me.com or susancarswell@aol.com

  11. Congrats on your story being in Pat's spooky anthology! :) I got the Santa one, so I'll have to check out the spooky one too.

    Interesting anthology idea--I have a couple ideas in my head. I need to really work on my whole narrative essay thing. There's a Chicken Soup book about engagements or something like that and really, I have a great engagement story--Rick asked me to marry him in a voodoo temple! :) Anyway, I digress. Thanks for the info.
