Let It Snow

This winter I’ve been co-editing a short story anthology for Bethlehem Writers Group. The result: Let It Snow: The Best of Bethlehem Writers Roundtable, Winter 2015 Collection.

Diane Sismour, Bernadette De Courcey and I selected sixteen short stories from The Bethlehem Writers Roundtable to make up this short story collection.  We had fun rereading stories, working with the authors, and designinng the cover. Work to be sure, but enjoyable none the less.
