I’ve finally gotten around to reading the stories in THE BIG FANG, the
Harbor Humane Society’s Charity Anthology, which have earned some enthusiastic
5-star reviews on Amazon.
the first titles I’ve read have fully invited me into the story. Well-developed
characters, including the personalities of the critters, carry the story, plot, and theme along at a rapid pace. Interesting, funny, and/or twisty endings are
de rigueur. I’m humbled and excited to have my short story, ‘Firebug,” included
among the cozy and humorous mystery and crime stories in this book.
By the by, it’s a
two-fer: Buy one book filled with stories written by 22 multi-published authors,
and…and… the proceeds of your purchase benefit the Harbor Humane Society and
the wonderful work they do. I have to tell you this story about Harbor Humane's commitment to saving animals:
About a month ago, the
organization received a call from a temporarily closed Alabama animal shelter requesting
help to rescue abused dogs discovered in a suspected puppy mill. Two members of
Harbor Humane drove eleven hours with a truck full of kennels from West Olive, Michigan,
to Birmingham, Alabama, to pick up 35 animals and drove another eleven hours to
bring them back to their facility for loving care, medical treatment, and to
find them fur-ever homes. Now that’s commitment. See how your purchase will help?
THE BIG FANG Anthology is available
on Amazon and through your favorite bookstore.
