My blog is moving house now. I've decided I may get more people to check in if I move to word press http://fogonthebrain.wordpress.com/ so here's my new address. I would love for my followers to pop on over and sign up. I know I don't exactly blog for Wales, or even my little part of it, but I do like to say Hi once in a while.
And you can win a free paperback copy! Announcing the release of The Storm is Coming: An Anthology.
Storms can come out of a clear blue sky, or they can build over a long period. They can take many forms, all terribly destructive: a tornado or hurricane that destroys all your belongings, an abusive spouse who destroys your sense of well-being, or human actions that can devastate an entire society.
In this collection of short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and images, you will find the range of approaching storms, and the range of emotions involved in such cataclysmic events. Within these pages you will find Mother Nature on the warpath in the form of tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, and vengeful plants. You will find storms approaching in the form of an abusive spouse, a fed-up spouse, and the down-trodden. You will find murder and suicide. But, as is always the case after a storm passes, you will also find life beginning anew.
To celebrate the release of this anthology in both paperback and ebook formats, Sleeping Cat Books will send a copy of the paperback to one reader chosen at random. The rules for entering this drawing are below.
The Storm is Coming: An Anthology is now available in paperback (http://sleepingcatbooks.com/storm-store.html) and for Kindle (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007L3M7QE) and NOOK (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-storm-is-coming-various/1109651115?ean=2940014274623).
