A few months ago, another author approached me about contributing to a Christmas anthology as a gift to our readers during a tough year. This week, I’m happy to announce the release of Wartime Christmas Tales: A WWII Flash Fiction Anthology. It’s available as a free ebook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and several other stores.
Here’s the official blurb:
Soldiers stumbling upon mercy and miracles; children sharing gifts of friendship and love; romance finding its way into lonely, war-weary hearts; resistance fighters; spies; families on the home front—all bringing their own ray of hope in the darkest of times.
For this holiday season, we offer you this collection of short stories to lift your spirit, and to remember a time when love and the strength of human spirit prevailed.
We hope you will enjoy stepping back into the wartime Christmases in these stories with us.
Contributors include: Dianne Ascroft, Mary D. Brooks, Anne Clare, Eileen Joyce Donovan, Chris Glatte, Paula Harmon, Alexa Kang, Eilidh McGinness, Geneviève Montcombroux, J.L. Oakley, Jennifer Pittam, A. L. Sowards, Margaret Tanner, and Phil Yates.
A note on content: my short story, “The Christmas Spy,” is clean and appropriate for a wide audience, as are most of the other stories, but a few contain content (like language) that may offend some readers.
