Isn’t that gorgeous?!
I am, frankly, freaking out about this.
First… There’s the cover. Up there. Go look again. I’ll wait.
Second… This is something I’ve had waiting in the wings for years. I was fortunate enough to have a bit of time and decided to go for it. It’s an anthology of short fiction and I’ve had the privilege of working with seven amazing authors to create this book.
Third… I am over-the-moon thrilled to announce The Shadows We Breathe will be out in August! Stay tuned.
A huge thanks to all the authors who added their words to this collection of beautifully-written stories. 🖤 To Loni Townsend for the cover art. To Allie Potts for getting this cover print-ready (and creating that lovely 3D image up there).
WE ARE ALL PART SHADOW
Life promises joy and sorrow. Alongside the light, there will always be traces of darkness. It is the nature of being human.
In this anthology, we explore relationships—how they sculpt us, hurt us, help us, and reveal our deepest desires.
Eight artists, whose words paint worlds, bring you stories of heartache, loss, hope, and forgiveness. They unveil the intimacy and complexity of relationships.
Whether family, friend, or lover, connections to others can hold us up or break us down.
Within these pages, beautiful words are spun into tales threaded with darkness.
Discover the shadows we breathe.
