New Summer Reads: Anthologies

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly summer sails by. Between baseball for my boys, a sick daughter, and a couple writing projects that have kept me very busy; I barely caught sight of Independence Day before it launched me to the halfway point of summer vacation.

Sheesh. Summer is already half over and I’ve only been to the beach once.

That said, I have a trip to Colorado coming up and a possible jaunt to the Black Hills. In preparation for this time away from work, I have a TBR pile of books double digits deep that will accompany me on my kindle.

If you’re looking for a few of your own beach reads, let me help you out.

Summer’s Edge. This is the second newest anthology in the Seasons Series from Elephant’s Bookshelf Press. Along with some great stories about relationships on the edge, you can find one of my very own, very short pieces of fiction: Indiscretions. I think the title says it all.

The newest (by a few hours) is Summer’s Double Edge, the fraternal twin to Summer’s Edge. Due to the number or quality submissions, EBP simultaneously released a second collection of short stories. The shorts found in this book are a bit darker, including another of mine titled Ten To One.

What’s on your beach read pile this summer?
