Share Our Strength: No Kid Hungry

This is an issue I feel very strongly about. No child should have to be hungry. No child should have to suffer because of situations that are beyond their control. For those who can, we should all do something to address this issue.

About No Kid Hungry:
No Kid Hungry™, an unprecedented, five-year effort designed to end childhood hunger in America. Our nation has the food and programs in place to end childhood hunger, but consider what we are up against: The stigmas and embarrassment that surround hunger, the challenges presented by access to healthy food, and the struggle to connect children with the resources they need to thrive. For 25 years, Share Our Strength has been confronting hunger head-on to break down these barriers. Together, with your support, we can put an end to childhood hunger. Will you join us in the No Kid Hungry campaign?

Final cover for Horror For Good: A Charitable Anthology

For those of you who have been following along, my husband has been co-editing this amazing anthology, Horror For Good: A Charitable Anthology, with all proceeds from sales going to amFAr, an AIDS research charity. The book is nearing its final stages, pre-release. The cover has just been released as the next stage in the process! It is a stunning picture that was created by William Cook, a very talented artist and author. (Be sure to check out his page here)

Without further ado, here is the final product!

Stay tuned for the Table of Contents, release date, and purchase information! Would love it if you would be a part of supporting this and raising money for a very worthy charity!

Fan of Horror Literature?

Hey all, I know I already posted a bit about my new business, Nightscape Press, but would really love it if we could get the word out to everyone who might be interested. Whether you're a reader, an author, both =) , just really want to get the word out. I have been an avid reader from a very early age.. and round about 3rd or 4th grade, I started reading horror books (at the time, it was Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark or some such thing) among many other genres... but there's just something about horror that appeals to me...

In this new business, we will be publishing horror novels, novellas, and from time to time, anthologies. We won't be churning out any old book that comes our way, we are going to strive to work only with the best stories and the best authors to bring forth a quality product that we, the authors, and the readers can be happy with...

If this is something you're interested, I would love it if you would follow us in this journey. We have a website, Nightscape Press, which has all sorts of information as to our submission guidelines, our first title (and as we accept more stories, there will be information about those as well), and our information (check back soon as we hope to have merchandise up!), our Facebook page, Nightscape Press on Facebook , and our Twitter page, Nightscape press on Twitter.

If you're not a horror fan, but you know someone who is, I would love it if you would share our information =) Thanks so much!!
