This quote is from the intriguing story, ‘The Beholders’ by Sean Williams.
It’s been a while since I posted about the beauty anthology. I have been busily working with the writers to get the manuscript polished and shipshape. And it’s looking pretty amazing. Just as I had hoped, the writers took the theme of ‘beauty’ and cracked it open, looking at the underside of the idea and the fact that beauty cannot exist without it’s companion and alter ego – ugliness.
And so from that came the name of the anthology: Breaking Beauty. It seemed to fit.
The stories we have collected together in Breaking Beauty are remarkable. Diverse. Beautiful. Frightening. Illuminating. Funny. Heartbreaking. Sweet.
And now, finally, I can announce the names of the writers who have made this collection such a good read:
Mary Lynn Mather
Amy T. Matthews
28 stories in all, every one of them a gem. (Bryan Whalen’s work shook me up so much I had to include two of his stories).
Now, exciting news! We will be launching Breaking Beauty at 6:30pm Friday 7th November at the South Australian Writers Centre. We hope to see you there.
Stay tuned…we have a stunning cover being designed – I can’t wait to show it to you soon!
