I'm breaking from the norm with today's post. There are three books I want to bring to your attention.
100 Stories for Haiti - I'm proud to have a story in this compilation. This project is the brainchild of Greg McQueen, and others. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross for use in Haiti. You can read bios of the authors here and pre-order a copy here.
Genre Wars - Davin, Scott, and Michelle, over at The Literary Lab, recently hosted a short story contest. The best thirty stories have been published in an anthology available through Lulu. All proceeds go to support the efforts of WriteGirl, a nonprofit that works with high school girls in Los Angeles.
Finally, Tara Masih's new collection of short stories, Where the Dog Star Never Glows, is available at Amazon.com. (I posted Tara's wonderful guest post recently.) The collection has received rave reviews already. You can read a few of them here.
