Unshod finalUnshod – An anthology of traditional and contemporary western short stories where raw emotions and heartbreaking experiences written by nine female authors will captivate all reading tastes.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the release of this anthology, and it’s a great honor to have my short story “March Forth” placed in the same set with some very talented authors.

From Jan Morrill, Pamela Foster, Staci Troilo, Joan Hall, P.C. Zick, Janna Hill, Michele Jones, Francis Guenette, and Lorna Faith, here’s a peek at what’s in store:

Feel the pain of a young Japanese girl who comes home from an internment camp after World War II and learns it’s easier to go with the flow than to fight the current.

Struggle with an expectant mother on the cold winter prairie while she waits for her husband to come home from a hunting trip.

Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.

Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.

Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.

Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.

Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.

Walk the wild western paths and run from unimaginable dangers.

Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.

Nine female authors pen western tales that you’ll want to retell around a campfire. These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good. And the collection is free on all major online retail sites!

    • Thank you for all you did to bring this anthology to publication, Michele. I’m sure Staci and the family missed your presence, but glad you could enjoy it long distance.

  2. Congratulations, you prolific author, you!

    A question and an observation:

    Do you find that anthologies are popular sellers? I’m just curious.
    Maybe it’s just my computer, but the comments of others are coming out in yellow and are next to impossible to read. I do enjoy reading what others have to say, so you might want to look at the template you selected or the color palate. Just a suggestion… I hope you don’t mind. I know I like to be told when something isn’t working on my site, so I just assume others would appreciate knowing as well. 🙂

  3. Anthologies are a good way to go – shared costs and shared promoting. Thank you for lettting me know about the comments! I’ve been working on my website today and changed some things but didn’t check what the colors did to the comments! Please, always tell me when I’ve made a boo boo!
