Gifts of the Magi #amwriting

GIFTS OF THE MAGI is now live! It’s an anthology, as I said yesterday, put out by the Speculative Fiction Guild to benefit the literacy program Indy Reads. Submission was by invitation only, so I am, as my British-speaking friends say, quite chuffed to have been included.

Gifts of the MagiMy story, “The Warmth of Midwinter” (excerpt posted yesterday) features Andrin, the Crown Waymaster from my fantasy trilogy, SAGE. I had puttered around and nearly completed a totally different story and THEN I read the guidelines. The story was supposed to revolve around a featured character from my series and was supposed to be feel-good. The story I was working on was not only about a completely new character, it took place in a completely other country than any of those in SAGE.

So I flailed like Kermit for a while, then I opened a new document. I emailed Sara Marian and asked, “Who should I write about?” She said, “ANDRIN!” So I did.

To learn more about the anthology and to see how to buy it (I know you want to buy it. Not you, Jane. Christmas is coming, you know.), follow this link.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a story set in the dead of winter.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
