The #WolfPackAuthors Anthology: Once Upon A WolfPack

Over the past few months, I've been involved with an online writers group collectively known as the Wolfpack Authors.  We support each others writing efforts and help each other get the word out about our work.  It's great to have friends in the writing business that I can count on for good advice and support.

We've recently put together an anthology to help readers sample all of our work and help a really good cause in the process:  The Lockwood Animal Rescue Center.  LARC rescues wolves, wolf dogs, and parrots and they also offer a therapeutic environment and help for returning combat veterans. All of the profits from our anthology will be donated to benefit LARC.  Our anthology is called "Once upon a WolfPack" and it is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other ebook platforms.

This awesome anthology contains stories from across many genres contributed by #WolfPack Authors including -
  • Cozy Mystery - Yuletime at Cherrywood Hall: Veronica Cline Barton 
  • Fairy Tale/ Parody - Unfairy Prosecuted:  J.W. Crawford
  • Fairy Tale - Poppy: Tia Fanning 
  • Fantasy/ Supernatural - For the Love of the Pack: Sharon Lopez 
  • Horror/ Meta horror - The Untold One: B.L. Clark
  • Horror - Frost Harbor: Alexander Pain 
  • Literary - Omega Road: Lee M. Tipton 
  • Magical Realism - An Early Snow: Andi Marchal 
  • P.I./ Detective - The Wolf: Joe Congel 
  • P.I./ Detective, Cozy Mystery - Mrs Solberg’s Problem: CW Hawes 
  • Poetry - Wolf Pack United: Angie-Marie Delsante 
  • Poetry - Welcome to the Den: Lori Katherine 
  • Romance/ Supernatural - The Soap Maker’s Mother: Christina van Deventer 
  • Science Fiction/ Military - Sacha: Jeff DeMarco 
  • Science Fiction/ Paranormal - Wolf Cry: Z Gottlieb 
  • Science Fiction/ Paranormal - Circus of the Night: Stefan Angelina McElvain 
  • Urban Fantasy - True Nature : Luna Selas 
My contribution to the anthology is a short story called "Frost Harbor."  It's a tale that brings us to the rugged coast of late 19th century Alaska aboard the U.S.S. Petrel.  The Petrel is an all steel gunboat powered by sail and steam and bristling with latest in naval guns.  But, the threat she'll face in "Frost Harbor" will test her crew and technology in ways never imagined.  I hope you'll read it, enjoy it, and help some wolves and veterans out!
