Story, Sommer Marsden, J.M. Snyder, Dakota Trace, Piers Anthony, Roxanne Rhoads, Elise Hepner, Darcy Sweet, Christabel Rouseau and Erin O’Riordan.

Now I'm going to go all fan girl for a minute as one of the authors is Piers Anthony a writer who inspired me a teenage to well... write. One of my dreams was to be in the same publishing house as him go ahead snicker... laugh, but it was a dream I never believed would come true. Now I'm in a freaking anthology with the man. Holy crap!

Excerpt from Sweet Revenge my contribution to the anthology

Dont make a sound, back up slowly, and keep you hands where we can see them. Jamie swallowed as the guys got closer. They all wore black clothing. The one holding her at gunpoint wore a Red Sox baseball hat over his dirty blond hair. He also wore large black plastic sunglasses so she couldnt see his eyes.

Raising her hands, Jamie did as she was told.

Good girl. Two other men followed them into the house.

The guy holding the gun half turned and spoke to the two behind him. Jamie took this opportunity to warn her sister. The twins were psychic and had always had a special connection. It had gotten them out of a lot of scrapes. Jamie hoped it would get them out of this one as well.

Where are the kids? He grinned. “Were going to have a little pow-wow.

She hesitated and he grabbed her arm, pulling her closer and pressing the barrel of the gun against her cheek. Jamie fought to keep herself calm. She wouldn’t be any good to the kids if she changed. It’d just make things worse, especially if these guys went dirty hairy and there were silver bullets in those guns.

Aimees in her room upstairs and Rangers in the livingroom asleep on the couch.

The man with the gun gestured to his accomplices. “Okay, go get the kid and check for anyone else. The two goons headed for the stairs. As they did, the one holding her dragged her into the livingroom.

Dont worry. The cops are on their way.Baylee’s voice whispered through her head.

The man holding her drew Jamie’s attention. “You know, if it wasnt against the rules, Id waste a little time with you. Whats your name?

Jamie,” she whispered, hoping they wouldnt wake Ranger. What do you want?

You can purchase a copy of the Wonder Anthology on the eXcessica website soon to be also released in print.

Hi Wynter,

Feel free to also put up an excerpt of "Were Am I" here on your blog if you wish. I know you have an author's copy available to you so go ahead (if you'd like to) to take from the beginning down to:
I‘m lucky that Lone Rangers are a hundred years out of date, and that the price of argentum is relatively high now. Though I have no intention of testing the silver bullet theory—getting shot strikes me as a highly painful experience regardless of the outcome—at least I can hope I have some extra protection if I ever need it.
