Answering a plea to help a dying woman…

I was contacted by JHSked,, a friend of mine who is the author of Wolfsong (Tales from the Crescent), about possibly donating a story to help out a woman by the name of Lyndsey Roughton.

Lyndsey, sadly, is dying of brain cancer. The doctors have not given her much longer to live, so what JH is doing is collecting short stories from authors willing to donate them for an anthology to be sold in the Amazon Kindle store, with all proceeds going towards helping Lyndsey go on the vacation of her dreams before it’s too late.

So, when approached, I thought to myself, I haven’t ever written a short story before, but I sure as hell will give it a try. Therefore, Bakkian Chronicles – The Disneyland Debacle was born. It’s checks in at just under 5,000 words and takes place right between book II and book III. Let’s just say that it’s the first time everyone visits Disneyland in southern California together.

Take one fire thrower, one introverted ex-Lentarian soldier and one rambunctious kid. Picture a high-speed roller coaster, one reluctant rider and two willing accomplices. Did you know Disneyland has its own fire department? 🙂

The collection of stories should be under the name “Sweet Dreams” and we’re hoping to have it in the Amazon store at the end of June.

Here are a list of authors who have so far contributed to the collection:

Chris Fraser
Edward Larel
Mia Darien
Joseph Garrety
Jason McKinney
Naomi Clark
Jana Hill
Nicholas Ordinans
Leanne Fitzpatrick
B. Throwsnaill
Renee Hall
Sky Corbelli
Jeffrey Poole
Joe Occhipinti
