I’ve been sitting on this for AGES and am thrilled to finally be able to announce I’m part of an anthology of fantasy chase scenes coming this October! The title is Swift the Chase, and you can add it on Goodreads.

The book is releasing October 8th, and we’re hosting a Facebook party to celebrate and give away free books! I’ll be on deck from 3:30-4:00pm PST to answer any questions and dole out Tea Princess Chronicles trivia.
Mark your calendars, check out the cover here, and read on for more about the anthology and my story!
