As promised in the November Transmission (my newsletter), all members of The Crew have been entered to win a copy of the SUPERPOW anthology, which includes my story "Starlight." It's about a girl with galaxies in her eyes. Here's how it opens:
There were stars in her eyes. Not from thoughts grounded in a different space or time; not from a nostalgia she alone could use to summon forgotten yesterdays or better tomorrows; not even from dreams that settled her wandering spirit in the darkest nights. These were not figurative stars. The stars contained in the iris of her left eye were those of a galaxy far beyond the Hubble's range; the stars in her right were even farther. Millions of light years hidden behind eyelids that twitched throughout the night, as her smile played hide and seek with the dark. Unfathomable power trapped in an ordinary vessel.
Thanks to my random number generator, the lucky winner is: Stephanie Loree! I'll be in touch to arrange delivery. And if you'd like your very own copy of SUPERPOW, it's now available from Amazon and Smashwords.
In other news, it's great to see #99centnovember catching on across the Interwebs. This week, I've marked down the price on my collection Out of Time, now only 99¢ wherever eBooks are sold. It includes 3 strange tales:
• "One More Tuesday" - Josef finds himself trapped with only one way out and a life or death decision once he discovers how to free himself.
• "Leap Day" - Joan experiences a time distortion in her own apartment, and she must weave her knowledge of the past and future in order to survive the present.
• "The BackTracker" - Whoever wields power over the past must accept responsibility for the future, but Harry Muldoon's top priority is surviving the night.
