I just received some great news about "The Fault Zone: Words from the Edge" (December 2010) edited by Lisa Meltzer Penn. During the week of June 26, this anthology hit second place on the bestseller's list for paperback fiction at Kepler's Books in Menlo Park, CA. I'm proud that my short story, "The Grave of Mario Bandini," has been included in this collection.
"The Fault Zone: Words from the Edge" is a publication of the California Writers Club (CWC), San Francisco/Peninsula Branch (aka SF/Peninsula Writers). The book still is available at Kepler's in their Menlo Park store or online at http://keplers.com/local-authors for the price of $7. On Tuesday, July 26, several of the authors featured in this book will be reading at the public library in Belmont, California, at 7 pm.
Members of CWC San Francisco/Peninsula Branch already are hard at work to produce their next anthology, "The Fault Zone: Stepping Up to the Edge." Although the deadline is July 30 for branch members to submit entries for consideration, one additional work--the winner of the Fault Zone's 2011 writing contest--will be accepted for publication in the anthology as well. Anyone, including people who aren't members of SF/Peninsula Writers, may submit entries to this contest which has a deadline of September 30, 2011. Details about the contest can be found at: http://www.cwc-peninsula.org/Jack-London-Media-Clinic.html. (Don't let the URL wording fool you---this is the contest information.)
Thinking about entering the Fault Zone writing contest? Then be sure to obtain a copy of the initial anthology to see the types of pieces we publish.
Warm wishes and happy writing,
