Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Hey George, what happened with the August fantasy anthology? I asked you and you replied that is was postponed for September.

My memory seems to be failing me. Can you point me to a thread or something to jog this middle-aged hippocampus?

Submitted mine. It was just over 1100 words by the time I'd tweaked it a bit.

This is the thread: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,236937.350.html
But it's over now. I waited for the email but never received it. Is the fantasy anthology out?

Hi Antara, oh ok, it wasn't really a fantasy anthology per se. But, yes, we published recently. I sent you an email just now.

I apologize, I have not yet found the time to email every author who submitted a story to the anthology.

Hey George,
I just did some more light editing to my entry. I'm not sure if you want until the deadline to upload the document or if you took it when I submitted it. Just wanted to let you know that there have been chances since then.

Thanks!

Just call me the thread killer.

Hey George,

So how many people signed up in the end?

Also, I just did some more light editing to my entry. I'm not sure if you want until the deadline to upload the document or if you took it when I submitted it. Just wanted to let you know that there have been chances since then.

Hi guys, we've got 20 stories for sure. We'll have at least 1 more, maybe as many as 4 more before it publishes. 9 are humor, 7 are horror and 3 are fantasy.

This afternoon, I'll send out via email the proofs of the anthology. Please check your email, download a copy and proof your story/ies and 1 other story. Please do this as soon as possible because I want to publish early. The permafree process for Flash Flood 1 took 10 days, ugh.

If you find any Halloween-related promos, please let me know about them. We don't want to miss any of them.

Thanks for your submissions! I'm excited! This is another good collection.

P.S. There is still time to submit a story if you can get it to me by Oct 10. Let me know now if you plan to take advantage of this.

I co-run a small SFF promo site, the Indie Speculative Fiction Showcase. We could run a new release spotlight for the anthology.

Awesome, thank you. Keep in mind that most of the stories are not fantasy or science fiction tho, so I'm not sure if it's a good fit for you.

Hi guys! I just sent out via email the draft copy of the anthology. Please proofread your story/ies and 1 other and please return any corrections as a reply to the email.

I'm taking title ideas, blurb drafts and any other suggestions you might have.

Please return your edits by Friday, or earlier if possible. Due to how long permafree is taking at Amazon, I want to publish this ASAP.

Thanks! Love your stories!

Hi George,

I received the email and will be getting on that asap. How do you want us to do the edits? Just take notes and send them back to you with the story name?

Also SPRT is doing a freebie Halloween themed giveaway: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,233311.0.html?PHPSESSID=281cac204c7c479efa17fff514d371f0  It might be a good fit for the anthology!

Thanks a bunch!

We have run multi-genre anthologies before and also horror. Plus, the ghouls/zombie/Halloween theme should fit nicely into the theme of the site.

Hi, George. Got my copy on my kindle and I'll be looking it over tonight. I thought we had a tentative title on the other thread.
