As I stated in my previous posts at this link, and this link, 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 when 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.

A Witch’s Protocol
A month later, Megan braved the Council's hearing and escaped with a strong warning and probation. She'd never used magic so irresponsibly before, and looking back, she wasn't sure what had happened. One minute she was furious and casting Zack aside, the next all hell broke loose. Of course, she didn't admit that to the Council or the punishment would—she didn't want to think about it. She straightened, held her head high, and thanked her lucky stars, determined that her loss of control wouldn't happen again. To prove it to herself, the next morning she drove back to the park for a run. Maybe the good-looking guy will be there again. Oh no, stop right there, no more relationships. I can't afford more trouble.
Stepping out of the car, she started through her stretching routine and glanced up. There he stood, not ten feet in front of her—shoulder-length wavy blond hair tousled by the wind, wide muscular shoulders narrowing to… She licked her lips. The dude who played Thor has nothing on this guy. A furry black dog followed at the man's heels. For a split second, Megan considered ducking back into the car.
One hand on his waist and the other stretched over his head, Braiden bent slowly from side to side and front to back. He looked up, a genuine smile curving his full lips. “Hi there, nice to see you again. Megan, right?”
Too late. She groaned. She didn't have the self-discipline to walk away. Besides, it would be rude. “Morning. How are you?”
