Just wanted to share a really cool opportunity that I was made aware of recently by author and publisher Rita J. Webb.
She, along with Lani Woodland, Melonie Piper, Wendy Swore, Melanie Marks, Heather McCubbin and Evan Joseph, have all contributed short stories to an anthology entitled Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal.
Discover the secrets of a siren, fly with a hawk girl over the mountains of Montana, and flee supernatural party-crashers as the décor comes to life in this magical journey through paranormal stories.
Along the way, watch for ghosts in a haunted house, or ride through the moonlight with a stranger. Save a comatose boy who has lost his soul, and don’t forget to bring your garlic and wolfsbane—you never know when the shadows will snag you.
Transcendent includes eight stories of magic, love, death, and choice by some of the newest names in young adult fiction.
One of the short stories that’s included in this anthology called “Kiss of Death” involves a young heroine who is losing her ongoing fight with cancer. Cancer is an incredibly devastating disease that takes loved ones far too soon. It is far too common and if you think about it, it has most likely touched your life in some way, shape or form through grandparents, parents, friends, aunts, uncles, maybe even yourself. While it is tragic for a person to suffer through cancer at any age, it is especially heartbreaking to see children dealing with such a ravaging and life-changing disease.
This is why Robot Playground, Inc., the publisher of Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal, is donating
50% of February’s net profits to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
