IWSG Anthology: First Love and Twitter Pitch

I'm so excited to announce my short story "Paper Faces" will be included in the upcoming IWSG anthology, First Love: The Art of Making Doughnuts. 

The genre for this publication is sweet romance with a theme of first love. This is the seventh contest and anthology IWSG has partnered with Dancing Lemur Press to produce. I also had a story in the first anthology they produced together. 

Each anthology has a different genre and theme. Each contest is judged by professionals of the field, usually with a specialization in that genre. These judges pick the top ten stories they enjoyed which are then published in that anthology.

First Love: The Art of Making Doughnuts will be published by Dancing Lemur Press' imprint, Freedom Fox Press, later this year. Over the next few months, I will share more about my story and the other authors appearing in this book. I hope you will check out their social media pages and offer up a congratulations.

There will also be an #IWSGPit this month!

If you've never participated in a Twitter Pitch Party, this is your chance. Dozens have signed book contracts as a result - you could be next. Visit the #IWSGPit page for the rules and hashtags - then join the group on the 26th.

How are you doing so far on your 2022 writing and reading goals? Will you be participating in the Twitter Pitch?
