A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

This is the picture. Just Another Day in Paradise is a collection of 28 of my stories, some published, some not. The epub version will be available this week; with the print version available before Halloween.

Christopher Grant was kind enough to give me a blurb and the blurb was enough to make me blush, so thanks to him. I also owe a huge debt to my publisher and epublishing mentor, G. Wells Taylor. If you haven't checked out his novel Bent Steeple, you must. Thanks also to my editor, Joy Sillesen who is also my colleague at Dark Valentine Magazine.

The cover photograph was taken by Keith Cullom, a former firefighter whose photos of fires are available at fire-image.com. I first saw the picture in a news story and it haunted me.


  1. Congratulations, and on the best book cover ever, as well.

  2. Congrats on the release, Katherine.

  3. Thank you so much.
    @Cormac--Yes, it is the best cover ever. It took me almost a day to track that image down. I remembered seeing it on the front page of the LA TIMES. I saw some startling images--one of a house totally engulfed in flames that looked like a dwelling in hell.
