My story, "Tombstone Territory," appears in the first of the four seasonal anthologies from Tending Your Inner Garden, "Winter: Women's Stories, Poems and Inspiration for the Season of Rest and Renewal." The series will continue with volumes inspired by spring, summer and fall. I have submitted essays for those, as well, but have not yet heard if my work has been accepted. But of course I'd love to be represented throughout the contemplative year.
Here are a few facts about the book:
· It features the work of more than three dozen women from around the world.
· The book includes journaling and discussion questions at the back, making it ideal for book clubs or women’s study groups, or for personal reflection.
· It’s the first in a series of four books based on the seasons.
· Contributors to the book beautifully express the value of creativity, stillness, renewal, relationship, and endings and beginnings within the context of the reflective winter season.
Starting later this week, the book will be available for purchase ($16.95 US, plus shipping and handling) at www.tendingyourinnergarden.comand amazon.com. It will also be available after May 1 on Kindle and Nook.
