The answer is: “there is no better way!”

The anthology is a 2013 finalist in the Foreward Review / IndieFab Awards, Anthologies Category –– how exciting! So we’re happy to extend an invitation to our entire community here at BrickHouse Books to join these lovely writers Saturday, July 26 at 6:00 p.m. at The Ivy Bookshop:
