As you know, I am soon launching an anthology with the Author Conservatory … Voices of the Future: Stories of Courage & Compassion.

And, well, of course I think you should buy it!

However, I do realize that a part of you is probably going, “Well, why should I?”

Let me tell you why!

But first, let me introduce you to the anthology!

Why You Should Buy Voices of the Future: Stories of Courage & Compassion

1: Because it supports young authors!

Each story in this collection is written by a young author who is looking to make their way in the world, and 100% of the proceeds go to supporting young authors as they pursue their dreams, whether that be through continued indie endeavors (like me!) or heading off to conferences!

2: Because the stories are high-quality examples of fiction!

Each of the stories in this anthology have been carefully developed from the concept to the final draft by an elite team of fiction instructors and editors. They are beautiful examples of short fiction!

3: Because you’ll meet 8 debut authors!

Myself excluded, these authors are probably new to you … because they’ve never published before! What a great opportunity to meet new writers and perhaps find a new favorite! (Can you imagine being a fan of someone from their very first publication onward? Sounds like fun to me!)

4: Because it could be a great gift for a friend or family member!

This anthology makes a great gift because it has a little of everything and because it is great for all ages. It could also make a great school assignment or read-aloud!

5: Because Bob and Ena are adorable!

In my story, I write about two characters named Bob and Ena, and let me tell you, they are the cutest!

Bonus: About My Story

Introverted Bob has been in love with strong-willed, sensible Ena since he was about five years old. Though she has other suitors, miraculously she accepts his proposal … but she doesn’t say the three little words that would’ve made the moment perfect. Her acceptance ought to be enough for any man—but it just isn’t. It means he’s not the only person she wants to marry … just the one who asked her first, the one who will someday own a store, the one who offers her the most security. Will Bob ever win her heart … or is “I love you” something she will never say?

Well … have I convinced you?! If so, you can grab a copy here!
