As I receive contracts and final edits from authors, I’ll post a teaser from their story here and on our Facebook page. You know where to get the rest, right? Comments are welcome.

When I found the first of my silver hairs, amid the autumn-storm of gold and copper, the sight of it almost brought me to my knees, there in the bathroom of our old city house.
The first lesson in what it meant to be human.
The easiest one of many.
Humans worshiped me once, the idea and essence of me, in the long, gossamer age before. Kings and mighty warriors loved me, brave young farm-girls, knights at arms. They pined and died for me.
In the heaviness of time, I married a bus driver.
So, why did we take this story? Because it’s freaking awesome. Sometimes that’s all that’s required. The original was 1770 words; final edit is 1700 words.
Tune in tomorrow for our next tease. The full Table of Contents is here.
