So, this happened…..

Once upon a time

Back in May, I submitted a short story to be considered for inclusion in the third volume of Precipice, a literary anthology put out by the writing community Write on Edge in collaboration with independent publishers Bannerwing Books. Earlier this month, I got an email letting me know that my story, The Space Between Our Names, was chosen to be included in the anthology.

The book (book!) is due to be published (published!) in October and will be available on Amazon (Amazon!) as an e-book and in paperback format. More details will follow.

Several of the authors (authors!) included in this year’s anthology have blogs here on WordPress, and some have books published or about to be published with Bannerwing. Though I haven’t had time to look up all of the authors (authors!) who will feature in this volume of Precipice, there are others whose adventures in writing I have been following; some since the beginning of my time here and some only as of recently.

Andra Watkins writes at The Accidental Coochie Mama is the author of To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis.

Ericka Clay is the founding editor of Tipsy Lit and is the author of the upcoming novel Unkept, which is due to be released in early 2015.

Valerie Boersma blogs beautiful words at The Word Pirate.

If you haven’t already, they are all worth checking out. For more information on any of the authors (authors!) included in the volume itself, please go to Bannerwing’s web page. Of course, if you need any information about me, just ask ;-).

This is a pretty big deal for me, enough so that I finally felt justified updating my work profile on Facebook to ‘writer at Wine and Cheese (Doodles)’. Self promotion has never been my strong point. Hopefully this will be the beginning of my ability to justify my new position.

For those of you that have read and encouraged me here on WordPress, I thank you heartily. I’m excited to share the story with you all.

Add yours

      1. THANK YOU! Definitely check out Andra’s blog. She is a force to be reckoned with and full of ideas that she actually follows through with.


  1. Now I can say loudly to anyone that…”I follow the blog of this AUTHOR who writes fabulously,” Congratulations once again 🙂


    1. Thank you, truly. Sometimes I think it’s enough for someone to read something and say “this doesn’t suck.” Sometimes you want a bit more. Right now, I’m happy with the ‘this doesn’t suck’. 🙂


    1. The blog has a FB page, but I shudder to think anyone would call it a ‘fan’ page. I’m getting embarrassed just typing that! Seriously, it was a big deal to put ‘writer’ on my FB page, something that only friends see. Generational thing, guess. I need some millennial entitlement to see me through. Thank you, sincerely. I did do some celebrating, which lasted all of ten minutes before the self deprecation kicked in.


  2. Congratulations!!! And thanks for the shout out! So incredibly excited about the book! As is evident by all the exclamation points!!!! 🙂


Talk to me, Goose.
