Australia Burns (The Wild Rose Press Charity Anthology) Vol. 1, featuring D.V. Stone's "911, What's Your Emergency?"

As I've said before...

I am proud to announce that the generous folks at The Wild Rose Press...from authors to editors to the owners...have compiled a three-volume anthology to raise money to help the poor folks in Australia. The authors (48, I believe!) donated a short story and the staff busted their buns to get them ready for publication in a matter of weeks.

I will be hosting an official post three days before the books are released (February 14, 2020), but I wanted to share excerpts from some of the short stories I was privileged to read. I will post over the next few days and I ask that you help spread the word. 

Ideally, purchasing directly from The Wild Rose Press will garner the most money for the fund, since there will not be the cut that goes to AMZ, but unfortunately, the shipping is fairly steep unless several copies are being purchased.

911, What's Your Emergency?
D.V. Stone


The sun lit the horizon in pinks and purples, chasing away the dark blue of night. It was almost time for them to turn the keys over to the day shift. Joanna snored lightly from the passenger side.
Shay yawned. After the long night, she was tired. But it was a good tired, knowing she made a difference in people’s lives.
