I am crazy-proud to announce that–after more than a year of drafting, critiquing, writing, editing, soliciting, formatting, and polishing–my writing support group has released our second short-story anthology! INTERSECTIONS is now available in paperback and digital download on Amazon, and all proceeds for online and in-store sales benefit the Literacy Council of Frederick, Maryland.
Congratulations! You’ve gone and done a heroic thing and put multiple heroes in your book. As the saying goes: two heroes (or three or four or…) are better than one. Yes, I’m paraphrasing a tad.

Okay, so it’s nothing like the ice bucket challenge, unless you choose to dump a bucket of ice over your head as you post your goods. But since my computer has a palpable dislike of all things wet, I am forgoing the optional “ice” part. So this is how the Twitter-born 7x7x7x7 challenge works:
Step 1: Scroll to the 7th page of your work-in-progress (WIP) or the story you entered into the lovely PitchWars.
Step 2: Go down to the 7th line.
Step 3: Post the next 7 lines.
Step 4: Tag 7 writer friends.
Too easy, right? And a lot more fun than dumping ice over yourself while someone films your “aaaaiiiiiieeeee!” face, but at least that brings awareness to a worthy cause (ALS). This challenge, on the other hand, will just bring awareness to the unlimited talent of the PitchWars writing community. I am posting from my WIP, which is actually Book II of the MS I submitted to PitchWars. Enjoy!
