Cover Reveal – Stranded, a Wayward Ink Publishing Anthology

Cover Reveal – Stranded, a Wayward Ink Publishing Anthology

Some of you might know this from Facebook, but if you’ve missed it,, here’s the big news:

My short story Craving Stains is part of the absolutely amazing anthology Stranded published by Wayward Ink Publishing. The book will be released on October 10th, but the cover is here and so is the pre-order link 😀

What do you think? To me it’s absolutely brilliant, but I am biased.

Definition – Stranded

adjective

  • (of a boat, sailor, or sea creature) left aground on a shore.

“a stranded whale”

  • left without the means to move from somewhere.

“he offers a lift to a stranded commuter”

The boys in this collection of short stories have most definitely been left STRANDED!

They’ve been shipwrecked and abandoned.

Marooned and cast away.

And left helpless and high and dry.

But you should never underestimate the tenacity of the human heart…
