That’s about it for our big February news, but while I have your ears (or I suppose eyes in this case), let me get this off my mind. I’m thinking about doing a fundraiser to help fight cancer. I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago in the case that this is the first time you’ve heard about it. I had been thinking of doing a special edition of the magazine. However, the idea for an anthology was brought to my attention by one of the authors we published this month, Molly Moss. Many thanks to you, Molly. I do like this idea.
Now it’s only a matter of setting up a place for authors to submit their donated stories. So if you have a story that you would like to donate, please wait on it. The plan at the moment is to keep the anthology limited to between 10-20 stories. Also, since it is for an anthology, we will also accept reprints. However, I do want to keep a nearly even balance between new stories and reprints.
Copies of the anthology would be available in both a physical and digital format, and all proceeds will go to either the American Cancer Society or something more local (for me) like the University of Iowa Hospital, or even the Hope Lodge where my father stayed while receiving radiation therapy. Or perhaps we should set up a poll and let you guys choose where to send our donations. I do like to think of all of us as a large community. And that means you, the reader, should get a choice as well.
Anyways, it’s Friday. Read a couple of our stories if you can spare a few minutes, and make sure to fit in some Friday fun.
