Fantastical Visions IV now available for pre-order!

Fantastical Visions IVYay! The anthology I’ve got a story in is coming out in July! It’s a collection of eighteen fantasy stories by various authors, all compiled in the fourth installment of the Fantastical Visions anthology  series. The anthology is illustrated by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, who has done illustrations for Realms of Fantasy, as well as a huge variety of other publications.

For those who are familiar, my story “Imaginix”, which appears in this anthology, was sold to Fantasist Enterprises back in 2005. It was the first story I ever sold. I wrote the opening scene when I was a junior in high school, and then came back to finish it my freshman year of college. Selling it was and still is one of the most exciting moments I can remember.

It’s been a long time since I wrote “Imaginix”, but I think it captures a lot of my own insecurities about being creative and about coming of age while in the midst of trying to produce creative works. It’s been given several really great edits by the editor W. H. Horner, though I think the main character’s inexperience is mirrored in my own style of writing.

Feel free to check out the promo-site and read the excerpt from “Imaginix”!

    1. Thanks Sharon! If you do decide to pick up a copy, I hope it’s everything you’d like and more! ^_^ The pictures alone are really lovely. Stephanie Pui-Mun Law is a brilliant artist.

  1. Hi Sharon

    Your experience of getting your first story published and the bit of background you give is interesting and very ‘human’ in the telling.

    I felt much the same when I got my first publication out of the staring blocks last month. It is book one in a fantasy trilogy – http://www.randolphschallenge.com.

    Well done to you and thanks for sharing your experience. Good luck with the sales.

    Regards
