Update (January 2019) – Expected publication has been pushed to May 2019
I’m so excited to announce that the website for the anthology that I will be published in is live! Check out the webpage with my bio here: http://www.darkhelixpress.com/fiction/futuristic-canada-anthology/
It’s an anthology called “Futuristic Canada”, which is published by Dark Helix Press in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary (it’s one year late, I know). The anthology’s theme is pretty simple and open-ended–What will Canada look like in the future?
My short story is called “The Night Librarian” and is set 150 years from now in “New Canada”. It’s a dystopian science fiction with dark humour, a bad-ass librarian, and lots of action! I combined my profession (librarianship!) and my environmental studies background in this story. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
The anthology will be published in January 2019 — so you won’t have too long to wait! I’ll be posting another update when the anthology is published and available to purchase.
This will be my fourth short story that I’ve had published. If you haven’t already – check out the other three, which are all freely available to read online. You can find links to them under the “Writing” tab.
This experience of publishing in an anthology has been invaluable. It’s been a lot different from when I’ve published in literary magazines, because they just accept or reject the short story as is. I’ve gotten to work with some fabulous editors to make my story the best it can be, which has made me one step closer to being brave enough to try to publish my novel!
