Nightfalls anthology

The Nightfalls anthology is in its final editing cycle and it's a terrific group of stories. The anthology will be priced at $3.99 (a bargain for 29 stories), with all proceeds going to Para Los Ninos, an organization that helps at-risk kids and their parents succeed in education and in life.
The cover design is by Joy Sillesen of Indie Author Services, who donated her work to the project, She will also be designing both the ebook and the print version.  The stories range from speculative fiction to horror to humor with side trips to science fiction and noir-flavored lit fic.

Everybody I asked to participate in this anthology said yes, and then they gave me wonderful stories (and one poem). It's been a pleasure to work with everyone and I hope to do it again soon. More details to come, but just to whet your appetite--here's the TOC:

  1. HOORAY! Looks like an awesome lineup!

  2. It really is...and thanks so much for playing along!

  3. Thanks for all your hard work. Must have been a bear to format so many stories.

  4. It's about the same length as the final issue of Dark Valentine, which I think had close to 40 stories...

  5. Absolute honour to be on that list, and for such a worthy cause too. Thanks for all your hard work and patience bringing this baby to fruition, Katherine.


  6. Can't wait to see all the other stories!

  7. It is an honour to be included with all of these awesomely talented writers... and for a very worthy cause too. I am so looking forward to reading everyone's stories.

    Thank you, Katherine for all the time and hard work you put into this.

  8. Makes it even better to be included in Nightfalls now that I've met the classy lady who put it together. And being included in that list of contributors ain't chopped liver either.
