2019 Writers Co-op Anthology

by Dennis M. Myers, 06/21/2019

My first short story has been accepted for publication, and the anthology will be launched on October 1st, 2019.

The story is set in a future dystopian world, long after the final war with the orbital corporations. It's a harsh "slice of life" look at an ordinary couple, dealing with extraordinary horrors. It's called Applesauce Pancakes.

I wrote it originally because in the Rise of the Automated Empire series, during the events of the third book I wanted to bring a character up from Earth. I needed to wrap my head around what life was like down there. I ended up writing this, taking a good look at her folks and the area she would have grown up in.

When I was invited to submit a short story to the anthology, I added a slightly more optimistic ending, and a recipe for, you know... Applesauce Pancakes. Much thanks to my editor, Persephone Grey for that. She took the time to experiment and come up with a viable mixture that works with the limited ingredients available in the story. And apparently it tastes good, too. I didn't do it myself. I'm trying to control my blood sugar, and making dozens of experimental pancakes would have put me into a coma.

I'll be sure to add a link when it comes out. And promote it, and talk about it non-stop.

I am strongly considering putting a countdown display here. It may not seem like much, but it is a big deal for me. I am very happy.
