What's Doing for OCT Spooky Season? Mayhem in the Air - Cover reveal!

Untethered Realms, the speculative fiction author group I'm in has been cooking up a spooky new story anthology set to release around Halloween! My story is called A Strange Penitence. Here's a peek at the gorgeous cover! Even better, you can now put it on your Goodreads To-Be-Read list.

From Amazon bestselling and popular science fiction and fantasy authors comes Mayhem in the Air, a supernatural anthology of ten thrilling tales. Meet hot robots, hungry winds and the goddess of chaos. Explore alien planets, purgatorial realms, and a shocking place where people bury the living with their dead. Mayhem in the Air is the second, long-awaited story collection from the dynamic and inventive Untethered Realms group.
