|Inside - Thoughts from a Pandemic published by Nevermore Press|
In April 2021, I read an article in our local newspaper about a proposed book. There was an open call for authors to send stories and poetry for a "pandemic isolation anthology". The book would be published by Nevermore Press as a fund raiser for the South Shore Regional Public Libraries bookmobile.
Although there was no mention of a request for images in the open call, I prepared an email and sent some samples of my work that I thought might be appropriate for a cover. At the time, the proposed title of the book was "Isolation".
The editor responded enthusiastically and selected an image he would like to use for the cover. I was thrilled!
Days later, I was horrified to read about his tragic death. Hearing about someone's sudden passing seems to hit close to home even when you haven't met them personally. I put all thoughts about the book aside.
Six months later, I was contacted by the new editor who had taken over. The project was going to go ahead. One year later, the book is being released!available for purchase at this link. I am thrilled to be part of this project!
