Pre-order the CHOOSE WISELY anthology!

Most excellent CC fans,

I’m writing to you this evening to share something I’ve worked on for nearly two years (!). Almost twenty-four months of labor to push this baby into the world. A labor of love and discovery of so many very talented women writers who do their thing every. single. day.

This baby is the Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up to No Good  anthology, and it is available now for pre-order. It will be out for real (in ten days!) on March 31st. Dark fiction stories by Joyce Carol Oates, Aimee Bender, Diane Cook, Cat Rambo, Rachel Swirsky, plus a bunch more. The full table of contents is below, plus links to a few of the stories available online.

Choose Wisely

Joanne Merriam of Upper Rubber Boot brought it aboard, helped collect a few remaining stories, co-edited it with me, and made it beautiful. (Writers, she’ll be at AWP showing it off to everyone, so if you’ll be in attendance, make sure to drop by and stroke its perfect cover.)

Below are various links for you to click and spread around (pretty please?). We want this anthology to be seen. It’s THAT good (if we do say so ourselves).
