Coffee and Critique Anthology Release on Christmas Eve

This morning I received the exciting news that the hot-off-the-press Coffee and Critique Anthology will be available for pick up tomorrow morning.

Lou Turner, CEO and Publisher of High Hill Press, will be distributing contributor copies tomorrow at the Rendezvous CafĂ© (pictured in the photo cover on the left) at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning (Christmas Eve day).

A limited number of additional copies will be available for sale.

Several contributors will be on hand to sign copies tomorrow, but the official  release date and party/signing will occur early next year.

In addition to the stories and essays, the anthology also includes group and individual photos and "Take Ten" interviews from several members, including the late Nick Nixon.

Additional copies of the anthology will be available for sale from High Hill Press soon. I'll post more about the anthology early next year.


  1. Donna--I'm sure you have at least a few stories in this collection. Congratulations on yet another notch in your publication belt...

    (And have a great holiday.)

  2. Sounds exciting for all involved! What a Christmas gift. Enjoy the holidays, Donna.
    Merry Christmas!

  3. Hi Sioux,
    There are 20 contributors in the anthology. I have one essay and an interview included.

  6. If what's inside is half as cool as that cover, you've got a winner. Congratulations!

  7. Just had to drop in to say "Happy New Year" and wish you all the best in 2014, Donna! Love your writing and I'm pretty darn crazy about YOU, too. :-)

  8. Hi Val,
    Thank you. Hope your holidays are filled with joy.

    Hi Pat,
    You are welcome. It was great to see you there, and I love your story.

    Hi Tammy,
    Thanks! I took the photo for the cover, but Lou Photoshopped it to make it brighter.

    Hi Cathy,
    You are so sweet. I feel the same way about you. Hope 2014 is a fantastic year for you and yours

  9. Congratulations, Donna. How wonderful and exiting for you. I also agree with Tammy's comment above: what a beautiful cover.

    Be well, and Happy New Year!

  10. Hi Janette Dolores,
    Thanks. The cover is a photo of the outdoor garden where our critique group meets.
