If you read YA here is a fantastic book and it's FREE!!!
I'm a member of The Alliance of YA Authors, a Facebook group consisting of successfully published, newly published and soon-to-be published indie or hybrid authors. They share information, tips, links and experiences pertaining to publishing YA. I find I'm constantly learning so much still, from marketing to cover art, writing an effective blurb and much, much more.
The anthology-which has recently been updated and now contains 43 stories-is FREE at various sites. There's also a paperback version available. My good news is I have a story I've written included in this collection, titled "The Waiting," under the 'Horror' section. I hope you pick up a copy today! Let me know what you think.
That Moment When is an anthology of young adult stories in many genres--from paranormal to dystopian, fantasy to horror--something for everyone. Maybe you'll find your next new favorite author as you check out the 40+ exciting short stories.
