The best short stories stick with you, and the stories in this book especially, are meant to cast long shadows. The authors who contributed to this anthology are not only familiar with what lurks among the shadows, we choose to spend time there. Our monsters all live in different places—under beds, beside peaceful streams, inside ourselves, down mine shafts, in the sky. The darkness you’ll find in these pages knows no boundaries, so it’s only fitting that these stories cover many genres. So set aside an hour or two, switch on some lights and come join us… among the shadows. Preorder in print and download.
To be human is to have regrets, to question decisions, even to doubt our own abilities and capacities. Whether it’s because of a path not taken or a decision made for selfish or – perhaps worse – unselfish reasons, we all have had moments and decisions we regret. We might regret not recognizing an opportunity. In the end, the choices we make help shape our future. Mindy's short "Perfection" is included in this collection. Available in print and download.
The newest anthology release from Elephant's Bookshelf Press is a double issue for summer reading. Mindy's story "Anesthetic" appears in SUMMER'S DOUBLE EDGE. Summer's Edge and Summer's Double Edge examine relationships in transition, perhaps at an end. Indeed, not all relationships are meant to last. The second in the two-book summer anthology from Elephant's Bookshelf Press, Summer's Double Edge contains some of the collection's darker tales. Readers of horror as well as romance will find stories that appeal to them, as will those who enjoy a dash of humor or who keep a box of tissues nearby to wipe away a tear. Available in print and download.
An anthology of short stories, Spring Fevers is an exploration of relationships in their varied states: love -- requited and unrequited -- friendships discovered and lost, family in its many guises, and the myriad places in between. Mindy's short story, "First Kiss" is the lead story. SPRING FEVERS is available in print and download.
An anthology of short stories, The Fall explores different visions of the apocalypse. Ancient prophecies, technological Armageddon, failures of government, a distracted deity, and yes, zombies all have their moments in this collection, but so do love, yearning, hope, and humor. In the end, the apocalypse offers a path to new beginnings, even if it requires a trek through death, despair, and destruction to find them. This collection includes Mindy's one-act play "Disconnect." THE FALL is available in print and download.
